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.
