Abstract

Biomechanical modeling is very useful in the ongoing advancement of our knowledge of human infant head injuries. The current models are limited by a paucity of basic science data on the biomechanics of human infant tissues at various stages of development. Overall, the current state of biomechanical modeling does not justify reaching forensic or legal conclusions regarding the head injuries of infants and young children. This chapter discusses the various aspects of biomechanical head injuries in infants and young children.
