With a thorough knowledge of injury biomechanical, industry practices, training, safety, and regulations, our professional consultants can explain precisely what happened in a wide range of accidents, claims, and legal disputes.
At Rimkus, our biomechanical team specializes in human and tissue biomechanical consulting to meet the growing demand for scientifically based forensic investigations involving personal injuries.
Rimkus’ 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.
Our biomechanical consultants offer a unique combination of expertise in the following:
- Accident reconstruction dynamics
- Human kinematics
With this expertise, our biomechanical consulting team analyzes the effects of forces upon the body to determine the relationships between events and injuries.

OUR BIOMECHANICAL SERVICES
Motor Vehicle Injury Biomechanical
Vehicle accidents often result in injuries to occupants or to others. By applying principles of biomechanical and physics to accidents, Rimkus’ experts can help a client understand the motions of vehicles, occupants, and pedestrians, as well as the mechanics of injuries diagnosed.
Biomechanical in Premises Liability
Understanding the mechanics of human locomotion (gait), fall dynamics, and injury mechanisms, as well as the interactions between pedestrians and walking surfaces, are key to determining how falls and injuries may have occurred. Our biomechanical experts can evaluate these factors to determine if they contributed to a reported event.
Ergonomics and Occupational Injury Biomechanical
There are many ways a person could potentially be injured in a work environment. With proper analysis, our biomechanists can evaluate the causes of acute and long-term injuries as well as accidental deaths. We can also provide solutions to prevent or mitigate at-work injuries.
Sports and Recreation Injury Biomechanical
Accidents can occur when individuals interact with sporting goods, exercise, or therapy equipment. Rimkus experts can help evaluate the root cause of an accident and its effects on the human body.
Product Injury Biomechanical
When products fail, are misused, or perform differently than expected by users, injuries can occur. Rimkus’ biomechanical consultants can evaluate the interactions between products and users and how these may result in injuries.
Computer Animation, Forensic Video Enhancement, and Exhibits
A visual representation of an accident or incident event conveys information far better than words alone. From computer-generated animations, to full-length video productions, to 3D printing, our team designs and creates compelling demonstrative exhibits to accurately illustrate the facts to help our clients and juries understand precisely how an accident or incident occurred.
