Explico Engineering offers a wide range of services...

Injury Causation Analysis

Did THIS event cause THAT injury? There is a right way to figure this out, and it requires certain steps. If you want to know more about those required steps, give us a call.   


Biomechanical Reconstruction

In the same way skid marks and damaged vehicles tell a story about an accident, so do injuries. The biomechanical engineers at Explico can use injuries as physical evidence in order to reconstruct the events of an incident.  


Occupational biomechanics

We have the necessary software tools and knowledge to characterize  work tasks and determine their association, if any, with specific  musculoskeletal disease.  


CLOSED HEAD INJURY ANALYSIS

The biomechanics associated with closed‐head brain injury is very complex, and requires a deep understanding of the historical literature. At Explico, we have this deep understanding and love  sharing it with others in a way that is easy to understand.  


RESTRAINT USAGE AND EFFECTIVENESS EVALUATION

Seatbelts and airbags are carefully designed in order to mitigate the  forces acting on an occupant during certain crash scenarios. In some  cases, their efficacy might be minimal or negligible, depending on a  variety of factors. Explico has the experience and knowledge to  carefully evaluate each collision specifically, and determine the  efficacy of these components.  


HELMET USAGE EFFECTIVENESS EVALUATION

The appropriate evaluation and analysis of the effectiveness of a  helmet involves a multi‐disciplinary approach. Specifically, a thorough  collision reconstruction and injury causation analysis must be  performed. We can do both!  


MEDICAL RECORDS REVIEW, CHRONOLOGY, AND SUMMARY

Sitting on stacks and stacks of medical records and billing? We can  provide thorough, detailed summaries with hyperlinks back to the original records… for just $0.60 per page!! Call and ask us about a  sample work product.  


CHILD ABUSE INVESTIGATION

The stakes are high, and it is crucial you hire engineers who simply  don’t settle for anything but the right answer. Period. Explico’s  biomechanical engineers can perform a thorough injury causation  analysis in order to determine if a child’s injuries are consistent with a  caretaker’s story.  


COLLISION RECONSTRUCTION ANALYSIS

From site survey to computer simulation, Explico Engineering has  reconstructed innumerable collisions. Whether you have a fender  bender, or multiple tractor‐trailers overturned on the interstate, we  can figure out what happened.  


NIGHTTIME VISIBILITY EVALUATION

Explico engineering has the necessary expertise and equipment to  evaluate issues related to nighttime visibility.  

 


LOW SPEED COLLISION ANALYSIS

Just because a collision happens at low speed doesn’t mean its simple to analyze. Explico has performed numerous, detailed collision severity and biomechanical analyses for low‐speed collisions.  


“BLACK BOX” OR EVENT DATA RECORDER DOWNLOADS

Does that car have a downloadable airbag control module (“black box”)? We know. Give us a call to find out. We can also perform or  facilitate downloads of commercial vehicles.  


RAIL YARD ACCIDENT INVESTIGATIONS

Investigating and analyzing accidents that occur at rail yards requires  a specific understanding of the types of activities that take place and  the associated vernacular.  


LOCOMOTIVE CROSSING ACCIDENT RECONSTRUCTION

It is critical to understand the timing associated with these events.  Explico’s easy‐to‐understand time‐distance analysis and diagramming   provides compelling demonstratives that anyone can understand.  


SITE INSPECTION AND SURVEY

Explico’s state‐of‐the art equipment combined with our wealth of  experience comes in handy in the field. Whether the accident is years  old, or happened moments ago, we can handle it.  


3D LASER SCANNING

Just about anyone can operate a laser scanner and collect data… LOTS  of data. Then what do you do with it?? Explico engineers have the  tools and know‐how to convert those millions of points into usable 3D  models.  


3D COMPUTER GRAPHICS AND ANIMATIONS

Sometimes the only way to communicate a complex scenario is  through the use of 3‐dimensional graphics and animations. Explico  has the ability to generate these types of demonstratives from the  ground up.  


2D ILLUSTRATIONS AND DIAGRAMS

Sure, 3‐dimensional images are cool, but at Explico, we subscribe to the KISS philosophy. Keep It Simple, Stupid. Sometimes, a simple 2‐ dimensional illustration can provide sufficient clarity to communicate the critical issues.  


EXPERT WITNESS TRIAL TESTIMONY

When it comes to testifying, there is no substitute for experience. At  Explico, our professional engineering staff has extensive experience in  a courtroom setting, and we pride ourselves on our exceptional verbal  and visual communication skills. Don’t believe us? Call us, and we will  be happy to provide references.  


COMPUTER SIMULATIONS

As technology continues to advance, and incredible computing power  becomes commonplace, virtual simulations provide invaluable data in  reconstructing the events of an accident. Explico stays on the cutting  edge by routinely performing computer simulations for accidents, and  also using these tools to perform research.  


OPPOSING EXPERT REPORT EVALUATION

Just got a report from the opposition’s expert, and have NO IDEA what  they’re saying? Don’t freak out. Even if its not in one of our  wheelhouses, we can help connect you with the appropriate expert.  


EXTENDED NETWORK REFERRALS

We have been in the engineering and scientific consulting business for  a long time, and have had the opportunity to work with some REALLY  smart people. If we can’t help you, we probably know someone who  can. Give us a call, we are happy to give referrals to fellow consultants  we trust.
