The role of cervical muscles in mitigating concussion

Increased neck strength has been hypothesized to lower sports related concussion risk, but lacks experimental evidence. The goal is to investigate the role cervical muscle strength plays in blunt impact head kinematics and the biofidelity of common experimental neck conditions. We hypothesize head kinematics do not vary with neck activation due to low short term human head-to-neck coupling; because of the lack of coupling, free-head experimental conditions have higher biofidelity than Hybrid III necks.
