In everyday language, the mass of an object equals the weight of the object. 5 Mechanical Trauma curved, underlying tissues – connective tissue, fat, bone) • The size of the contact surface between the compressing object and of the compressed skin • The source that determines the mass of the object (gravity, human behavior, accidental wedging) • The force exerted on the skin (the level of loading).

This will lead to changes in the energy that is transferred from the compressing object to skin during the time of exposure (contact time) and will influence the final effect of the static load on the skin. In physical assaults, static loading mostly will be caused by blunt-force trauma due to compression, but loading of the skin may also be caused by pulling or twisting the skin. , a needle) is first held and then pressed against the skin (often leading to a penetrating trauma).
