Biomechanical & Biomedical

Biomechanical & Biomedical Engineering Expertise

Miller Engineering often investigates cases that require our professional biomedical engineer to analyze the effects of motion and applied forces on the human body. We have extensive experience in the forensic analysis of injuries related to industrial, transportation, and consumer product failure incidents from the initial investigation phase through trial exhibit preparation and courtroom testimony.

We can provide engineering services and expert witnesses for the following types of cases:

  • Injury Causation Analysis
  • Biomechanical Reconstruction
  • Occupational Biomechanics Evaluations
  • Medical Device and Equipment Failures
  • Workplace Accidents
    • Construction Accidents & Injuries
    • Railyard Accidents & Injuries
  • Motor Vehicle Collision Analysis
    • Frontal, Rear, and Side Collisions
    • Low-speed Collisions
    • Pedestrian Impacts
  • Restraint Usage and Effectiveness Evaluation
    • Helmet Usage Effectiveness Evaluation
  • Cumulative Trauma Injuries
  • Sports Related Injuries
  • Head or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Biomechanical Analyses

Biomechanical engineering is the combined use of mechanical engineering principals and biological knowledge to understand human movement and to evaluate the effects of applied forces and motion on the human body. Miller Engineering applies biomechanical engineering analysis to isolate the mechanism and causation of injuries in consumer products, industrial, construction, agricultural, and recreational industries. It is also used during accident reconstruction of automotive and commercial vehicle accidents and injuries.

Biomedical Analyses

Biomedical engineering seeks to close the gap between engineering and the medical field related to topics such as medical devices that are generally regulated by the FDA. Miller Engineering regularly conducts biomedical analysis techniques to investigate medical device and equipment failures.
