Mr. George’s work has focused on issues involving the biomechanics of human injury in slip and fall events, interactions involving consumer products, occupational and industrial accidents including falling objects and falls from heights, and all modes of automotive collisions. He has utilized his research experience in human gait to investigate individuals negotiating various environments, with a focus on the role of footwear. As a certified English XL Tribometrist, he has assessed the condition of walkway surfaces and its role on overground walking. Mr. George has evaluated numerous consumer products, including child products, for potential hazards associated with the use and misuse of these products.

Mr. George has evaluated various accidents to evaluate the risk of injury to multiple body regions. He has investigated the injury mechanisms and kinematics of children during their interaction with various child products, including restraint systems, toys, infant carriers, highchairs, bassinets, and floor seats. He has been involved in the evaluation of various issues related to Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) inquiries and product recalls. Mr. George has evaluated occupant kinematics and injury mechanisms in automobile collisions, including frontal, rear-end, lateral impacts, and sideswipes, as well as rollovers. He has also assessed lower back loads in various scenarios and compared them to everyday activities.
