Belt Fit and Belt Torso Contact of Children on Belt-positioning Boosters

Principal Investigator: Randee Hunter, PhD, The Ohio State University

The goal of the study is to evaluate the newly proposed metrics of belt fit (namely, percent belt torso contact and gap characteristics) along with previously published methods using child volunteers on a variety of modern belt-positioning booster seats.
