Selected Aspects of the Experimental Methods of Impact Biomechanics
AbstractOwing to the specificity of the experimental tests conducted in impact biomechanics, whose subjects are volunteers, cadavers or animals, ethical and legal aspects are just as formidable as the restrictions of 'technical nature'. The first part of the paper presents fundamental ethical principles, universally accepted by the international community, which must be followed in the course of conducting biomedical experimental tests (including those that fall under the category of impact biomechanics). The second part is a presentation of the preparation (e.g. to install a great number of measurement sensors, necessary for collection of as much data as possible regarding the behaviour of individual body parts under impact load) and course of experimental tests in which human cadavers were subjected to different loading scenarios of the thorax. The purpose of these tests was to identify the parameters and to validate an advanced simulation model of the human thorax developed within the THOMO project.
