Recent studies have shown that mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) can have long-term neurological consequences and may cause permanent damage to the brain [1,2]. Given estimates that millions of these injuries occur each year [3], this knowledge has created a demand for countermeasures to prevent mTBI. In order to create countermeasures, the biomechanical inputs leading to mTBI, which are still a matter of debate, must be better understood in both children and adults.
