Definition: Material Agent of the Specific Physical Activity
The Material Agent associated with the Specific Physical Activity describes the tool, object, or instrument being used by the victim when the accident happened. The Material Agent may or may not be implicated in the accident. However, if there are several Material Agents associated with the Specific Physical Activity, the Material Agent most closely linked to the accident or injury must be recorded.
