OSU Injury Biomechanics Research Center

The Injury Biomechanics Research Center (IBRC) brings together an interdisciplinary team of engineers, anatomists, physicians, computer modelers and technicians, who focus on both mechanisms of injury and injury thresholds of the human body.

The IBRL is a site for the multi-university I/UCRC (Industry/University Cooperative Research Center) for CChIPS (the Center for Child Injury Prevention Studies). CChIPS is a joint venture with the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia striving to advance the safety of children, youth, and young adults by facilitating the conduct of scientific inquiry into the causes and mechanisms of injury, and by translating these findings into commercial applications and public education programs for prevention. With the statement "Children are not small adults", CChIPS gathers industrial support to advance the knowledge of child injury mechanisms and create an international research community that seamlessly translates research into prevention.

The IBRC established and annually hosts the Injury Biomechanics Symposium. This symposium is intended to stimulate and reward strong injury biomechanics research among students and recent graduates from all over the world. The symposium delivers original biomechanics research in a forum intended to foster communication between developing and established researchers.

Next up for the IBRC at the workshop: Vikram Pradhan, PhD student in BME, gave a fantastic presentation titled “Evaluation of head and cervical spine kinematics of a GHBMC M50 occupant subjected to a moderate rear impact in a production seat” with co-authors Dr’s Kang and Ramachandra. Sorry the picture is so bad!

Most car seats are being used incorrectly. We teamed up with Brutus Buckeye to demonstrate the proper way to install a car seat and keep your little one safe. 👶

Happy Halloween from the IBRC! We've got business-casual Bowser, a bad DEXA scan, the party animal (aka Vikram), the FARO Arm, a bad belt fit, and Tim the Enchanter (aka THE RAM 👊).
