Sr. Mechanical Engineer/Biomechanics

Dawn R. Freyder



8517 Sunstate Street
Tampa, Florida 33634




Ms. Freyder received her Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Lehigh University and her Master of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering (specializing in Biomechanics) from Tulane University. Post graduation, she was employed as a biomechanical research technician at Tulane and was involved with pre-clinical orthopedic implant studies, analyzing material biocompatibility, mechanical properties, efficiency, safety, and failure analysis at the Tulane University Medical School Department of Orthopedic Surgery.

At S E A, Ms. Freyder has continued to perform biomechanical analyses of injury mechanisms, injury causation, injury reconstruction and their relationships to potential accident and/or impact sources. She has analyzed matters associated slip/trip/fall events, workplace accidents, product failures, playground equipment, and vehicle accidents. She investigates, analyzes, and reconstructs accidents from both the mechanical and biomechanical perspectives, including vehicular occupant injury biomechanics, human kinematics, performance analysis of automotive restraint systems, child safety seats, and/or helmet usage.

A licensed professional engineer in multiple states, Ms. Freyder has collaborated with colleagues on investigative research projects in the areas of vehicle accident reconstruction, biomechanics, human kinematics, injury thresholds, MADYMO, and motion capture, culminating in multiple published papers and is a member of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and has been certified as a Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST).

Ms. Freyder has special interest in playground safety, impact attenuating surfaces, the biomechanics of slip/trip/falls, athletic injuries, indoor trampoline parks, family fun centers and obstacle courses. She is a Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI), certified in utilizing the TRIAX surface impact Tester and is a participating member of the American Society for Testing and Material (ASTM) technical committee Technical Committee on Playing Surfaces and Facilities (ASTM F08 Technical Committee), Public Playground Equipment (ASTM F15.29 Technical Sub-Committee), and on Amusement Rides and Devices (ASTM F24 Technical Committee).
