Simms Lab - Page under construction

The injury biomechanics group at TCD generally aims to understand how external forces load internal body structures, to enable design of improved devices/processes in injury biomechanics applications. We work on four principal strands: soft tissue mechanics (especially the structure-loading relationship in passive muscle), pedestrian/cyclist collisions (protection remains a challenge), sports injuries (increasing importance and sporting collisions are a living laboratory), and device design.
