A Unique Cause of Traumatic Brain Injury and All Neuro-Musculo-Skeletal Injuries $43.00
Authors:  Vladimir G. Ivancevic
The prediction and prevention of traumatic brain injury, spinal injury and musculo-skeletal injury is a very important aspect of preventive medical science. Recently, in a series of papers, this author has proposed a new coupled loading-rate hypothesis as a unique cause of all above injuries. This new hypothesis states that the main cause of both traumatic brain injury and neuro-musculo-skeletal injuries is a Euclidean jolt, which is an impulsive loading that strikes head or spine or any other part of the human body – in several coupled degrees-of-freedom simultaneously. It never goes in a single direction only. Also, it is never a static force. It is always an impulsive translational plus rotational force. A Euclidean jolt causes two basic forms of brain, spine or body injury: (i) localized translational dislocations; and (ii) localized rotational disclinations. To show this, based on the previously defined covariant force law, this author has firstly formulated the fully coupled Newton–Euler dynamics of: (i) brain’s micro-motions within the cerebrospinal fluid inside the cranial cavity; (ii) any local inter-vertebral motions along the spine; and (iii) any local joint motions in a human musculo-skeletal system. Then, from it, this author has defined the essential concept of Euclidean jolt, which is shown to be the main cause of both traumatic brain injury and all other neuro-musculo-skeletal injuries. The Euclidean jolt has two main components: (i) sudden motion, caused either by an accidental impact or slightly distorted human movement; and (ii) unnatural mass distribution of the human body (possibly with some added masses), which causes some mass eccentricity from the natural physiological body state. Computational details of this new injury theory are provided in a review paper
