Skademekanismer vid cykelolyckor som resulterat i frakturer
Cyclists account for a large share of injured road users in traffic. The crash data analysis for cyclist safety and protection should be based on a representative dataset of real-world crashes. This project aimed to explore the patterns of cyclists’ fractures and factors associated with fractures of higher severity.
This project exemplifies a methodology that combines injuries from a crash database, including both hospital and police reports and fracture registry database from orthopaedic centres nationally in Sweden.
The results of this study may guide the design of appropriate protective devices for the cyclists based on the different injury mechanisms and provide implications for prioritizing new countermeasures, campaigns, or regulations.
