Motor vehicle fatalities and injuries remain a leading public health problem worldwide. In 2009, the World Health Organization reported more than 1.2 million people die each year worldwide as a result of motor vehicle crash [1]. Researchers are using a wide array of tools to mitigate the societal tool of this epidemic, and finite element (FE) computer models are one method gaining interest in the biomechanics field. Full body FE models are used to examine the potential for occupant injury in vehicle crash. Such models are often built to represent an average (50th percentile) male occupant [2]. However computational models can be made to represent essentially any driving cohort.
