  1. 1. 3D Finite Element Modeling of Cervical Musculature and its Effect on Neck Injury Prevention

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH

    Författare :Sofia Hedenstierna; KTH.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Finite Element; Cervical Musculature; Neck injury prediction; Continuum Mechanics; Solid Elements; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Injuries to the head and neck are potentially the most severe injuries in humans, since they may damage the nervous system. In accidents, the cervical musculature stabilizes the neck in order to prevent injury to the spinal column and is also a potential site for acute muscle strain, resulting in neck pain. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Understanding Boundary Conditions for Brain Injury Prediction Finite Element Analysis of Vulnerable Road Users

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Författare :Victor S. Alvarez; KTH.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Brain injuries; Vulnerable Road Users; windscreen impacts; Finite Element Analysis; pedestrian accidents; cycling accidents; pediatric neck; Applied Medical Technology; Tillämpad medicinsk teknik;

    Sammanfattning : Vulnerable road users (VRUs) are overrepresented in the statistics on severe and deadly injuries in traffic accidents, most commonly involving the head. The finite element (FE) method presents the possibility to model complex interactions between the human body and vehicles in order to better understand the injury mechanisms. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Prevention and prediction of head and neck injury in traffic accidents - using experimental and numerical methods

    Detta är en avhandling från Institutionen för flygteknik

    Författare :Peter Halldin; KTH.; [2001]
    Nyckelord :Head injuries; neck injuries; prevention; roll-over; motorcycle; helmet;

    Sammanfattning : Injuries to the head and neck system are potentially amongthe most serious injuries in humans, since they may damage thespinal cord. It is therefore important to develop safetysystems that can prevent injuries to the neuro- system, therebyreducing human suffering and costs to society. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Description and prediction of clinical radiosensitivity : Emphasis on normal tissue reactions

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Oncology-Pathology

    Författare :Roger Tell; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Radiotherapy; radiosensitivity; normal tissue; thyroid; cell cycle; lung injury;

    Sammanfattning : There is a range in the severity of normal tissue reactions observed when cancer patients receive radiotherapy (RT). The limits of dosage in RT have empirically been set by doses that have caused severe reactions in the most sensitive patients. The understanding of factors governing variations of radiosensitivity is therefore very important in RT. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Physiotherapy Management, Coping and Outcome Prediction in Whiplash Associated Disorders (WAD)

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Anne Söderlund; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; Whiplash associated disorders; physiotherapy; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; omvårdnadsforskning med medicinsk inriktning; Caring Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The aims of the present thesis were to evaluate the management of acute WAD and to develop, describe and evaluate a cognitive behavioural approach for the physiotherapy management of long-term WAD as well as to study the predictors and mediating factors for long-term disability and pain after a whiplash injury. Two approaches for acute and chronic WAD were evaluated in experimental studies. LÄS MER
