Effect of a Pre-Pretensioner on Motion of Booster Seated Children in a Pre-Crash Maneuver

Principal Investigator: Madeline Griffith, MS, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Using child volunteers in a sled-simulated pre-crash maneuver, this study aims to:

  1. characterize kinematics, muscle activity, and seatbelt loads of booster-seated children restrained with a pre-pretensioner seat belt in a sled-simulated pre-crash maneuver; and
  2. examine differences in outcome measures across different seating postures.

This project is currently underway. Further information will be added in late 2023 following project completion.
