Child Seats with Load Legs: Understanding the Response of the ATD in Mitigating Head Injury Risk Across Crash Directions

Principal Investigator: Aditya Belwadi, PhD, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

This study aims to quantify the response of the instrumented anthropomorphic test device (ATD) in rear-facing child seats with and without load legs in simulated frontal, oblique, and lateral impact crashes. The broad long-term objective of this line of research is to gain insight into ATD kinematics and kinetics as a function of the child seat.
