Effectiveness of Boosters vs. Forward-facing Five-point Harness

Principal Investigator: Julie Mansfield, MS, The Ohio State University

As the optimal time to transition a child from a forward-facing child restraint system to a booster is not currently clear, this study aims to help inform better guidelines for children during this transition. Statistical analyses will be conducted on cases in federally available databases and the mechanisms of injury in each type of seat will be analyzed to compile recommendations for industry interventions.
