Abstract

Biomechanical measures associated with common falsely reported scenarios in child abuse were compared using computer simulations. Working Model Motion (WMM), a commercially available computer simulation software package, was used to construct pediatric fall simulations. Three-dimensional geometric shapes representing body segments were joined using revolute joints, universal joints, springs and dampers.
