Road accident data could help predict crash victims most at risk of brain injury – Imperial College London


Imperial researchers have identified how speed, direction, and level of head protection predict brain injury following road traffic collisions (RTC).
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are a leading cause of death and disability worldwide and nearly one in three are caused by RTCs.
A partnership between Imperial College London and TRL has investigated the relationship between TBI and collision parameters such as speed, direction and force of vehicle impact. By studying more than 2000 collisions they have calculated the likelihood of different types of brain injury on British roads and shown for the first time how collision parameters like changes in speed during collisions relate to different types of brain injuries.
