1. Purpose / Introduction
The safety of modern cars especially the increased use of seat belts has caused the increase of whip-lash
injuries in car crashes. Earlier the traumas of the whole body were more common. Nowadays if the car is not
badly crashed and the body is well fixed in the seat of the car, the head is the only free part of the body that
moves in the sudden stop of the car. ( Fig. 1)
