Who are Biomechanists?
A biomechanist might be an engineer or medical doctor; biomechanics, however, is not within the sole domain of either of these easily recognized professions.
Biomechanical vs. Medical
Biomechanics - the science concerned with the action of forces, internal and external, on the living body. (From Stedman’s Medical Dictionary for the Health Professions)
What is Biomechanics?
The discipline of biomechanics integrates the laws of physics and the working concepts of engineering...
When a Biomechanist can Help
In general, a biomechanist is a useful expert when liability questions involve human motion...
Types of Cases

Following are types of cases where Northstar Biokinetics has played a major role in identifying and answering functional anatomy or biomechanical questions:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • Industrial Accidents
  • Boating Accidents
  • Beatings
  • Slips/Trips/Falls
  • Product Liability
  • Bicycle Accidents
  • Dance Injuries
  • Drowning
  • Shootings
  • Gait Analysis
  • Criminal Forensics
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Playground accidents
  • Athletic Injuries
  • Child Abuse
  • Horse Accidents

We can be useful in all types of impact accidents and other events where the match between forces and tissue damage is in question.

Northstar Biokinetics can provide valuable scientific literature-based analysis on issues involving human motion, human tissue damage, and/or mechanisms of injury. Our scientists are helpful in all types of impact accidents and any other event where the match between forces and tissue damage may be in question. Such cases include in slip/trip claims; sports injury; product liability cases where the relationship between the product design or characteristics and the injury biomechanics is at issue; criminal forensics where the relationship between victim motion or tissue damage and the trauma event require analysis; and in situations where the failure to wear protective clothing or equipment (i.e. seatbelts, motorcycle helmets, or shoes) causes or increases the event-related trauma.
