    1) I wonder if they put tension on the Achilles when they did the cadaver tests.
    2) Admin, are you using coaster brakes on your bicycle?

    I see a lot of Road Traffic Injuries and a straight head on collision is rare. The assumption is correct that the driver's foot is usually hard on the brake but the majority of high speed head-ons are corner to corner and so there rapid spin on the car and a rotational thrust on the foot and ankle in a plane similar to that of the road. This rotation is as great as the trust straight into the pedal. The results are complex breaks that don't fit into any predictable pattern from on RTA to the next.

    Motorcycles RTAs are much more predictable. About half will be a crush between the gear box and the bumper of the car with shear injuries due to the speed of the biker.
