Estimation of TASER Current Flow and Effects on Human Body
Available here [LINK] (833KB .pdf)
This human body model (bought and paid-for by Taser International) was intended to show that the distribution of taser current in the "worst case" could not possibly affect the heart.
But notice also that the calculated taser current (in this case) is tightly confined to the very small area on the chest.
Let that sink in for a second... ...ready?
When someone is struck in the chest with a taser, a direct hit to the chest over the heart as shown in this model, does the subject simply stand there blinking, with one pectoral chest muscle twitching, and no other affect?
That seems to be what this model is indicating.
The current is so tightly confined in the model, to protect the heart (and to attempt to protect Taser International's bottom line) that there's nothing left to knock the subject over.
The only muscle affected by the direct taser hit is one pectoral muscle.
So this Weeble wobbles, but he doesn't fall down.
But the computer model analysis collapses under its own weight.
