REAL WORLD HEAD IMPACT DATA MEASUREMENTS ON JOCKEYS
Keywords: Instrumentation, Head injury, Equestrian, Horse racing
AbstractA novel instrumentation system previously implemented on American football helmets (Greenwald et al. 2008) has been adapted and validated against a Hybrid III head and neck for use in an equestrian environment. This has been used to determine the forces applied to jockeys’ heads during fall impacts in competition racing.
