Overview

The study of accidental injury lies at the interface between medical d iagnosis and treatment, and research on biomechanical principles of ti ssue organization. This second edition, completely revised and judicio usly expanded with a new chapter on lower extremity trauma, presents c hapters written by widely recognized authorities in the field of human traumatic injury, and covers topics ranging from automobile restraint systems to cell and tissue biomechanics. This new edition will conti nue to interest a variety of scholars and professionals including phys icians; biomechanical researchers; mechanical, biomedical and automoti ve engineers; as well as attorneys and jurists involved in accidental injury cases.
