A friend of mine has this blog and this is a great study.

 

Results:  Although height significantly increased peak angular acceleration (αp), change in peak-to-peak angular velocity, time duration associated with the change in velocity, and peak impact force (Fp) for head-first drops onto a carpet pad or concrete, none of these variables were significantly affected by height when dropped onto a mattress. The αp was not significantly different for drops onto a carpet pad and concrete from 0.6 or 0.9 m due to compression of the carpet pad. Surprisingly, sagittal αp was equaled or surpassed by axial αp.

 

Translation:

 

The fall Amanda had onto the carpet covering concrete actually SURPASSED the need for height "requirements" on a head injury.

 

It's time that the medical establishment realizes this.
