Work Description

Title: Belt fit Manikin Representing a Two-Year-Old Child
Attribute NameValues
  • A physical manikin was developed that represents a two-year-old child sitting in a vehicle seat. The manikin was developed to assess seat belt fit, particularly in aviation seats, but also has applicability in other environments such as ground vehicles.
  • This is the first physical anthropomorphic test device to be based both on statistical body shape models as well as 3D printing.
