This study examined peak and cumulative brain strain from 20 cases of concussion in both young children and adults using physical reconstructions and finite element modelling of the brain response to impacts. The child group showed lower impact kinematics as well as strain metrics. Results suggest children may suffer concussive injuries with lower brain strains compared to adults.
