May 9, 2024

Forensic Biomechanical Engineering Services Provide Injury Insights

Rimkus Biomechanical consultants utilize years of specialized experience to perform investigations and analyses that help explain the mechanics behind injuries and accidents. Through our range of forensic biomechanical engineering services, we offer invaluable insights to clients spanning a variety of industries.

Our biomechanists use a broad array of analytical tools and techniques to understand the dynamics and mechanics of an accidental event – from physical testing and scientific literature to advanced mathematical dynamics modeling – and we specialize in applying engineering principles to analyze and reconstruct events leading to injuries or fatalities.

Our team’s unique combination of expertise in physics, accident reconstruction dynamics, biomechanics, anatomy, physiology, and human kinematics allows us to analyze the effects of forces upon the body to determine the relationships between events and injuries. By leveraging this expertise, we can uncover the intricacies of how accidents unfold and the resulting injuries.
