Have you registered for the Daigle Law Group 2023 Use of Force Summit?

Complete the form below to attend on Nov 28 - 30, 2023 at Mohegan Sun.

https://dlglearningcenter.com/use-of-force-summit-registration/

This keynote session, presented by Geoffrey Desmoulin Ph.D., R.Kin., P.L.Eng. from GTD Scientific, aims to teach the basics of video analysis necessary to extract physics-derived evidence from video footage and relate it to complex human injury investigations involving use-of-force incidents.

By the end of this keynote, you will:

➡ Identify how Newton’s laws of motion related to Use of Force investigations can be derived from video.
➡ Demonstrate how video analysis is currently limited to distance and timing.
➡ Discuss how biomechanics including applied load can be obtained from video footage.
➡ Demonstrate how specific video analysis can prove threatening positions vs. non-threatening positions.
➡ Explore multiple case studies where deriving biomechanics from video was critical in understanding the violent event in both 2 and 3-dimensions.

What is Injury Biomechanics?

Injury Biomechanics utilizes the concepts of engineering, physics, functional anatomy, human factors, and biomedical science to comprehend the impact of environmental interaction on the limitations of the human body.

Our personnel use medical records, diagnostic images, scientific literature, data collected, and mathematical dynamic modeling software (MADYMO) to quantitatively understand how traumatic injuries occur.

We Predict Human Injury in Any Environment

Our Forensic Investigation services specialize in injury biomechanics, incident reconstruction, and product safety to determine injury causation and prevention. We report these findings and if necessary, testify our expert opinions in the court of law. Our Research & Training services specialize in research to evaluate existing products or aid our clients in new product development as well as Continuing Professional Development training so that our niche can be disseminated. Typical clients include safety product companies, legal professionals, police officers, social workers, engineers, health professionals and anyone else interested in learning more about our practice areas and small business process.

When our Principal, Geoffrey Thor Desmoulin, PhD., RKin., opened GTD Scientific Inc. in 2009 his goal was simple: Provide the highest quality biomechanical consulting services available. Since that day, our experience has garnered us Federal and Supreme Court qualifications and an extensive international client list making GTD your first choice.
