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),...
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...
Bicycle helmet use and bicyclists head injuries before and after helmet legislation in Alberta CanadaDownload
Bicycle activity in Canada is common and unfortunately, can result in injuries, hospitalization and even death. Bicycle helmets reduce severe head injuries. Both promotional activities and helmet legislation have been used in several countries to increase helmet wearing among bicyclists. The...
This thesis investigates head injuries (HIs) occurring in sports and recreation (SR) that presented to emergency departments (EDs) in Edmonton, Alberta, from April 1st, 1997 to March 31st, 2008. There were 4,950 SR HIs identified over the 11 years (5.13 HIs per 1,000 ED injury visits)....
