A Laboratory Study on the Effect of Helmet Fit on Biomechanical Measures of Head and Neck Injury in Simulated ImpactDownload
Conventional wisdom and the language in international helmet testing and certification standards suggest that appropriate helmet fit and retention during an impact are important factors in protecting the helmet wearer from impact-induced injury. This thesis aims to investigate impact-induced...
A Laboratory Study on the Ability of Head Kinematics to Predict Brain Strains in Helmeted Head ImpactsDownload
Sports and recreation are a leading cause of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in North America, accounting for nearly 30% of TBI cases in youth in Canada. Contact sports, such as hockey and football, put athletes at greater risk of suffering mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI, such as concussion),...
Cellular DNAs contain genetic information vital for the functioning of the cells. Corruption of this information, or genetic disorders, can lead to various diseases. A potential treatment is to deliver exogenous DNAs with the correct genetic information to malignant cells to achieve a...
