Drop Tower (Impact Testing machine)

          The Head Injury Biomechanical Measurement System is the centerpiece of blunt head injury research in the CIBM3 and is essential for the completion of the scope of work proposed. The system has the overall objective of bridging experimental and computational research efforts in the areas of mild TBI and sports concussion. Our overall approach is to accurately measure all kinetic and kinematic variables through a combination of electro-mechano-optic sensors (possible in 3D) under controlled loading conditions to drive both experimental and computational research to achieve actionable solutions.
