The team involved in the aHEAD project consists of an interdisciplinary, international group of mechanical and biomechanical engineers, neurosurgeons and veterinary surgeons. As a result, the conducted research covers seemingly unrelated areas of science such as mechanics, electronics, numerical methods, medical sciences and industrial design.
Mechanical engineers carry out material experiments on tissues, experiments on advanced numerical dummies. In parallel, numerical models of the head are built taking into account the smallest details of the human body. Such models allow us to reconstruct the behavior of individual organs inside the head during accidents.
A part of the research group deals with the creation of instruments that allow the registration and acquisition of data that will be used to reproduce the kinematics of the head during an accident and body reactions such as pulse, temperature, EEG (Electroencephalography) measurement during an impact.
