Isaac N. Ikram, M.Sc., P.E.
Mr. Ikram is a Biomechanical Engineer and Accident Reconstructionist at Biomechanical Research & Testing, LLC in Long Beach, CA. He has been employed in the field of Biomechanical Engineering and Accident Reconstruction since 2005, specializing in trauma causation and prevention, human tolerance, instrumented testing with humans and anthropomorphic test devices (crash dummies), accident reconstruction, and slip/trip and fall analysis.
He holds both a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alberta. His master’s research was completed through the Biomechanics Laboratory in the Mechanical Engineering Department and involved the development and implementation of a sensor based system for measuring head and jaw movements in rear-end automotive collisions. Following completion of his master’s thesis, Mr. Ikram continued to work with the Biomechanics Laboratory to repurpose his sensor based system for use in gait (walking) analysis. Additionally, Mr. Ikram is a licensed Professional Mechanical Engineer, has completed Emergency Medical Technician training, and is a certified user of the English XL Variable Incidence Tribometer.
Mr. Ikram has conducted hundreds of instrumented tests and analyzed topics such as: vehicle crash performance, occupant kinematics, human/dummy response to a crash environment, head response to impact by falling objects/projectiles, and performance of Event Data Recorders (black boxes). He continues to perform research related to Biomechanical Engineering and Accident Reconstruction topics and has publications in both areas. He is a member of numerous professional societies and has presented at scientific conferences and academic institutions.
