A helmeted and unhelmeted headform was used to test three common impact events in ice hockey (fall, puck impacts and shoulder collisions). Peak linear acceleration, rotational acceleration and rotational velocity as well as maximum principal strain and von Mises stress were measured for each impact condition. The results demonstrated the tested ice hockey goaltender helmet was well designed to manage fall and puck impacts but does not consistently protect against shoulder collisions and an opportunity may exist to improve helmet designs to better protect goaltenders from shoulder collisions.||Funding Details:||European Commission Horizon 2020||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Taylor & Francis||Journal:||Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering||Volume:||20||Issue:||12||Start page:||1299||End page:||1311||Copyright (published version):||2017 Taylor & Francis||Keywords:||Brain injury; Impact biomechanics; Dynamic response; Finite element modeling; Brain tissue response||DOI:||10.1080/10255842.2017.1341977||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
