GLOBAL SAFER HBM
Taking SAFER HBM to the global arena; focusing the cervical and thoracic spine
The purpose of the project is to make SAFER HBM a biofidelic, robust, competent, and attractive tool for the project partners’ needs, also including being available to the community. Specific goals include to further improve the model, with special attention on spinal kinematics and injury risk prediction, and to enable global use of the model by preparing it for Free‐Access. The SAFER HBM will have capabilities to model the combined pre‐crash and in‐crash occupant in‐crash response including muscle activation which is crucial for instance for prediction of cervical spine injuries.
The project is connected to A-HBM Step 5, Car Passenger Protection – To the Next Level, and Injury HBM Step 4.
