Mr. Morse earned a Masters of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Rochester, in Rochester, New York and a Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Kettering University, in Flint, Michigan. Mr. Morse performed non destructive full scale crash sled tests with child safety seats while at Kettering University. These tests studied variations in child seat restraints using child anthropomorphic test devices. Mr. Morse studied vehicular crash dynamics, accident reconstruction and occupant protection. Further, he is an accredited Traffic Accident Reconstructionist by the Accreditation Commission for Traffic Accident Reconstruction (ACTAR), a certified Crash Data Retrieval (CDR) Technician and a member of the Washington Association of Technical Accident Investigators (WATAI). Mr. Morse has investigated pedestrian/bicycle incidents as well as inspected incident scenes and vehicles. Additionally, Mr. Morse holds a certification as an Associate Human Factors Professional (AHFP).
During his graduate studies, Mr. Morse investigated the mechanical forces and variations within the knee joint, including investigations into ligament deficiencies, meniscal changes, cartilage variations and varus/valgus alignments. Mr. Morse adapted and updated an intricate full contact knee model. Using a three-dimensional knee contact model, Mr. Morse investigated the effects and distribution of joint contact forces during daily activities in order to improve orthopaedic implant designs.
This background has provided a detailed knowledge of human anatomy, kinematics, biomaterials, injury tolerance, physiology, human factors and biomechanics as they apply to injury mechanisms and human tolerance. Currently, Mr. Morse specializes in accident reconstruction, vehicle forensics, and 3D laser scanning along with biomechanics and human factors as they relate to injury mechanisms.
