Isaac N. Ikram
Executive Vice President - Biomechanics and Accident Reconstruction
Isaac Ikram is a Biomechanical Engineer and Accident Reconstructionist with Aperture (formerly Biomechanical Research and Testing). Isaac has been employed in the field of biomechanical engineering and accident reconstruction since 2005. He specializes in trauma causation and prevention, human tolerance, instrumented testing with humans and anthropomorphic test devices, accident reconstruction, and slip/trip and fall analysis.
Isaac holds both a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alberta. His graduate 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 the completion of his thesis, Isaac continued to work with the Biomechanics Laboratory to repurpose his sensor-based system for use in gait analysis.
Additionally, Isaac is a licensed Professional Mechanical Engineer, has completed Emergency Medical Technician training, and is a certified user of the English XL Variable Incidence Tribometer. Isaac 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 (EDR).Download CV
