Lecture: Diary of a Biomechanics Student

This Friday, James Ashton-Miller will present “Diary of a Biomechanics Student: Towards the Prevention of Selected Unintentional Injuries and Their Long-Term Sequelae.”  In this talk, he will discuss the epidemiology and biomechanical mechanisms underlying several different types of unintentional injury, each costing the U.S. billions of dollars annually in acute and longer term medical care.  These include injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) while playing sports, injuries to women during vaginal birth, concussion, and falls in the elderly. Identifying exactly how, when and why these injuries occur could lead to better interventions to prevent the sequelae.
