Background: Motorcyclist casualties are continually increasing in Taiwan; however, research on the epidemiology of their injuries is still limited.
Methods: We conducted a study using a structured questionnaire. Information on riding behaviours was collected through this questionnaire.
Results: Totally 190 patients completed their questionnaires. Mean age of patients was 40.64 years. Average LOH was 7.1 days, 25.9% needed the ICU and 13.04% had ISS ≥ 16. Repeated motorcycle accidents were relatively common.
Conclusions: Our results demonstrate an overview of motorcyclist injuries in Taiwan, thus piloting an evaluation of epidemiology on motorcyclist injury and providing important references for a subsequent nationwide questionnaire study.
