At EVU 2015, we presented the results of an experimental study concerning the biomechanical ef-fects of lateral collisions on the cervical spine [1]. Based on these results a new, extensive study focussing on frontal-oblique impacts was conducted, whose experimental set-up was presented at EVU 2017 [2]. Now, at EVU 2019, the results of the study, which involved roughly 900 experimental frontaloblique impacts, are presented in another talk. Here, we introduce a novel 3D computational human model, which has been developed in the context of the mentioned study to be used for the analysis of biomechanical and kinematic effects on vehicle occupant during a collision. We show the concrete application of the model to the data collected in the mentioned study, and we discuss some clinical aspects and implications.
