Dependency of head impact rotation on head-neck positioning and soft tissue forces.

Humans are susceptible to traumatic brain injuries from rapid head rotations that shear and stretch the brain tissue. Conversely, animals such as woodpeckers intentionally undergo repetitive head impacts without apparent injury. Here, we represent the head as the end-effector of a rigid linkage cervical spine model to quantify how head angular accelerations are affected by the linkage positioning (head-neck configuration) and the soft tissue properties (muscles, ligaments, tendons).
