This article presents a series of 49 km/h sled tests using the Hybrid III 6-year-old dummy in a high-back booster, a low-back booster, and a three-point belt. Although a 10-year review at a level I trauma center showed that noncontact cervical spine injuries are rare in correctly restrained booster-age children, dummy neck loads exceeded published injury(More)
OBJECTIVE The recent refinement of high-rate optical tracking allows dramatically detailed thoracic deformation measurements to be taken during postmortem human subject (PMHS) sled tests. These data allow analysis of restraint belt geometry and the 3-dimensional thoracic deformations generated by belt impingement. One consequence of this new capability is a(More)
This study investigated the reported lack of ability of the eggcrate cushion (EC) to provide wheelchair users with adequate support necessary for comfort and tolerably low-peak sitting pressures over time. The primary parameter used to quantify the ability of the cushion to distribute load was the indention force deflection (IFD) metric. The EC was compared(More)
