Human biomechanics is the study of human motion. Biomechanics uses the principles of physics to describe and measure motion.
“Forensic biomechanics applies biomechanical knowledge to answer certain questions of civil and criminal law.” American Laboratory, April 2005, Vol 37, Number 8.
Forensic biomechanics is an emerging area of biomechanics, with the specialised publications such as; Forensic Biomechanics (2008) Hannon & Knapp, Accidental Injury- Biomechanics and Prevention (2002) Nahum & Melvin and Trauma Biomechanics- Introduction to Accidental Injury (2004) Schmitt, providing a base of understanding into the field.
