Rear-seated Occupant Kinematics and Kinetics in Small and Moderate Overlap Crashes: Restraint Characteristics and Occupant Interaction

Principal Investigator: Jalaj Maheshwari, MS, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

The goal of this study is to systematically explore the kinematics and kinetics of adjacent rear-seated pediatric occupants under different vehicle seat belt restraint characteristics, child seats, and seating positions in small and moderate overlap crashes.

This project is currently underway. Further information will be added in late 2021 following project completion.
