kinematics

kin·e·mat·ics

/ˌkinəˈmatiks/

Noun

Kinematics refers to the relationship of kinetic energy to the injuries sustained by a patient. Simply stated, a person is injured when energy is transferred somehow from an external event into the body. For example, a car crashing into a wall causes the patient to crash into the steering wheel and dashboard.
