  • The objective of this study was to conduct an analysis from the 1993-2000 NASS database and determine the occurrence of head injuries (HI) as a function of restraint use to nearside occupants in lateral impacts. Data from NCAP crash tests conducted in our vehicle crashworthiness laboratory and elsewhere were used to determine the potential for HI. The NASS analysis indicated that the risk of sustaining HI of any severity was higher without than with belt use. The risk increased by four-fold in… CONTINUE READING
