- Distinguished biomedical engineering professor discusses current WSU crash safety research, Mar 5, 2014
- Everything from the padding on the dashboard to the thickness of the windshield is designed to help keep you alive in the event of an automobile crash. That knowledge comes from experiments and crash tests conducted on crash test dummies. The crash tests often are conducted on human cadavers because engineers and designers need to know exactly what it takes to injure every major organ and bone in our bodies and try to design vehicles to protect us from those forces. The first place to ever conduct cadaver testing was Wayne State University. Its Bioengineering Center has studied impact biomechanics since 1939. Albert King, distinguished professor in biomedical engineering at Wayne State, talked about current research projects. King said that several years ago he did some research on the effectiveness of crash tests and found that about 12 lives were saved for every test conducted.
