Rami Hashish (born November 12, 1983) is the founder of the National Biomechanics Institute, and serves as a testifying expert in the field of biomechanics in United States and Canadian courts.[1][2][3][4] Hashish specializes in determining injury causation and mitigation across a variety of settings, including, motor vehicle accidents, slip, trip, & fall events, workplace environments, and athletic participation. In addition to his role as a testifying expert, Hashish serves on the committee for the Abbreviated Injury Scale as part of the Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine[5] has consulted for Investigation Discovery,[6] the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers,[7] the Association for Southern California Defense Counsel,[8] the Consumer Association of Los Angeles,[9] and the Judge Advocate General's School of the United States Air Force, among others.


Hashish was born in Seattle, Washington to Mohamed Hashish and Nadia Afifi.[10] Hashish achieved his Bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Washington. Following his bachelor's degree, Hashish went on to pursue his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Washington School of Medicine, followed by his PhD in Biokinesiology, with an emphasis in Biomechanics from the University of Southern California.[5] His thesis was on the influence of footwear on lower-extremity injury; this work has been published in numerous scientific journals and conference proceedings.[11] During his graduate work, Hashish also conducted computational studies on the foot using magnetic resonance imaging,[12] and examined the biomechanics of yoga,[13][14] inverse dynamics modeling techniques for the foot,[15] and clinical evaluation techniques for balance in older adults.[16]

Whilst a PhD candidate, Hashish served as medical expert,[17] and contributing columnist for Runner's World [18] and regularly contributed to The Huffington Post.[19]


Following his PhD, Hashish served as the Director of Rehabilitation Medicine at UrbanMed in Los Angeles, California [20] before joining Exponent as a Senior Consultant in Biomechanics.

National Biomechanics Institute[edit]

In June 2016, Hashish left Exponent and founded the National Biomechanics Institute.[21] NBI specializes in providing consulting services pertaining to accident reconstruction, biomechanics, medical record review, and human factors.[22]


In 2015, Hashish joined the University of Southern California, as adjunct clinical faculty in the Division of Biokinesiology & Physical Therapy and has previously served as a correspondent for Dignity Health[23][24][25] and Clinician's Today.[26]

Hashish currently has more than 50 peer-reviewed publications and presentations, serves as an editor for the Journal of Ergonomics,[27] and on the editorial review board for various high impact medical and biomechanics journals, including Medicine & Science in Sports and Exercise, Gait and Posture, the International Journal of Sports Medicine, The Journal of Forensic and Legal Medicine, and the Journal of Sports Science & Medicine. Recent peer-reviewed manuscripts authored by Hashish include an examination of the frequency of spinal injuries from motor vehicle collisions,[28] as well an analysis of the severity required in a motor vehicle collision to elicit airbag deployment.[29]
