Abstract

This article is aimed at measuring the relationships between psychophysical ratings (pain level) of forceful impacts on human subjects as a result of the energy of impact, the velocity of the impact, and the size of the impacting object to better understand the psychophysical effect of impacts to create methods to prevent the effect of impact on human soft tissues and better treat patients suffering from impacts injures. This study found that the pendulum energy was indeed the most important variable associated with the psychophysical ratings.
