He consulted on the development on one of the world’s first human finite element model that was verified by cadaver crash tests using a contoured head / neck restraint for full seat testing capabilities. This was one of the first testing tools that accurately reflected what happens to human spines as they are injured in collisions.
Dr. Dellanno also invented the Cervigard Anti-IED Smart Seat, which is designed to mitigate brain and spinal cord injuries to soldiers and law enforcement personnel.
