Sports and Recreation Injury Biomechanics

Accidents can occur when individuals are interacting 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.

Injuries can occur quite often in a playground environment, even with up-to-date playground equipment and maintenance. When accidents do occur, Rimkus can evaluate the injury accident dynamics, as well as the equipment guidelines and standards for installation, inspection, and maintenance.

Serious injury events can occur in amusement parks. When injuries are reported, Rimkus can determine the dynamics of specific events, how rides can affect the body, and how injuries may occur. We can also determine if the conditions of a ride are consistent with the injuries claimed.
