Ms. Balogh is an expert in biomechanical engineering. Her expertise include providing technical investigations, analysis, reports, and testimony toward the resolution of commercial and personal injury litigation involving accident reconstruction and biomechanical analysis of human injury, specializing in computational, impact injury and orthopedic biomechanics.
Ms. Balogh has a unique combination of research and industry experience. Her research background includes studying typical and perturbed patterns of postural and gait initiation and computational biomechanics of the human finger. Ms. Balogh experience in industry includes working with product development and the testing of medical manufacturing machine products, and has contributed to a variety of Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) programs primarily geared towards safety/survivability technology for various divisions of the military. The primary projects of which she contributed to include a shock-resistant mission module support system, energy absorbing and crashworthy seats for helicopters, and a lumbar load tolerance study. Ms. Balogh efforts assisted in redefining the recommended lumbar load tolerances for improving the crashworthiness of seating in naval helicopters.
Ms. Balogh’s education combined with her competitive history as an elite athlete provides a thorough understanding of human biomechanics and kinematics. Ms. Balogh holds a M.Sc. Degree in Bioengineering from the University of Illinois at Chicago and a B.S. Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Northern Arizona University. She is a member of the International Society of Biomechanics, the Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine and the Society of Automotive Engineers, among a number of other professional affiliations.
