THE DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF A MORE EFFECTIVE CHILD RESTRAINT CONCEPT

CONCEPT AND ENGINEERING FEASIBILITY OF A NEW CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEM HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED BY VARIOUS DYNAMIC TESTS. TESTS INDICATE THAT THE RESTRAINT SYSTEM WILL RETAIN A CHILD-LIKE DUMMY IN ROLLOVERS, SIDE IMPACTS AT 17 MPH, AND FRONTAL IMPACTS AS SEVERE AS A 30 MPH BARRIER CRASH. THIS UNIQUE SYSTEM THAT CAN BE USED IN ANY PASSENGER SEAT POSITION HAVING A LAP BELT CONSISTS OF A PARTIALLY ENCAPSULATING SHIELD AND AN INTERNAL BOX-LIKE 3-INCH HIGH SEAT. THE SHIELD CAN BE INSTALLED IN ANY VEHICLE SEAT HAVING A LAP BELT. THE SHIELD PROVIDES SUFFICIENT FREEDOM FOR REASONABLE COMFORT. EMERGENCY REMOVAL OF THE SHIELD CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED IN SECONDS WITH ONE HAND. THE SHIELD CAN BE CLEANED AND MAINTAINED EASILY. /AUTHOR/
