Experimental setup. Schematic and photograph showing a) the head clamp and force plate used for the isometric contractions, b) the sled configuration, and c) the sled acceleration pulses. Three superimposed pulses are shown to illustrate the repeatability of the pulse. The dashed line shows a vehicle-to-vehicle collision pulse with a speed change of 8 km/h recorded during earlier experiments [19].
