SEVERE FRONTAL COLLISIONS AND RESULTING INJURIES WITH AND WITHOUT RESTRAINING DEVICES

This paper briefly describes the results of simulated frontal collisions. Types and magnitudes of injuries sustained by cadavers depended on: whether or not they were restrained by safety belts, type and stiffness of belts, absence or presence of steering assembly and instrument panel, interactions between body, harness and structures in the driver's space.
