TitlePelvic Injury Mechanisms among Motorcyclists
AuthorsMeredith L, Baldock MRJ, Fitzharris M, Brown J
Year2014
TypeConference Paper
AbstractPelvic injuries are an often overlooked injury to motorcyclists involved in crashes, but represent a substantial proportion of injuries to motorcycle riders [1]. There has been minimal research into the mechanisms involved in these pelvic injuries. Studies which have investigated pelvic injuries have identified the petrol tank as a major cause of injury which is indicated by an indent in the motorcycle fuel tank from the crushing force of the riders’ pelvis on the fuel tank following the crash [1, 2]. Additionally, Wobrock et al., [3] discovered using Madymo simulation that the force on the pelvis increases with an increasing tank angle. This study aimed to examine the injury mechanisms involved in pelvic injury in motorcycle crashes in Australia.
