|Title:||Evaluation of the protective capacity of baseball helmets for concussive impacts||Authors:||Post, Andrew; Karton, Clara M.; Hoshizaki, Thomas Blaine; Gilchrist, M.

A helmeted Hybrid III headform was impacted by a baseball, and linear and rotational acceleration as well as maximum principal strain were measured for each impact condition. The method was successful in distinguishing differences in design characteristics between the baseball helmets. The results indicated that there is a high risk of concussive injury from being hit by a ball regardless of helmet worn.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Taylor and Francis||Journal:||Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomechanical Engineering||Volume:||19||Issue:||4||Start page:||366||End page:||375||Copyright (published version):||2015 Taylor and Francis||Keywords:||Concussion; Baseball; Helmet||DOI:||10.1080/10255842.2015.1029921||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
