The next 2021 Forensic Science Education webinar will take place March 18th at 1pm. This webinar is an exciting and unique opportunity to learn more about the field of biomechanics and how it can be used for evidentiary purposes in criminal cases.
While perhaps not as often talked about as other disciplines within forensic science like DNA evidence or drug chemistry, biomechanics can be an incredibly useful discipline to employ, especially in motor vehicle accidents, assault cases, and homicides.
Biomechanics is the study of how living things work mechanically. Put differently, biomechanics studies the physical forces that move and effect people. A great example is if you want to explain how a person’s arm works when they throw a baseball, and the way the joints move and the muscles contract, you would be explaining the biomechanics of the baseball thrower’s arm and body.
Biomechanics has many more applications than just explaining how a person’s arm works when they throw a baseball. To learn about these applications and more in the context of criminal law, in addition to learning more about how the scientific method can be applied to investigating injuries, sign up for the webinar here.
