RESTRAINT SYSTEMS COMPARISON IN FRONTAL CRASHES USING A LIVING ANIMAL

Since the three point belt appeared, many improvements were researched. With the aim of estimating their efficiency, a comparative study, choosing a living subject--the baboon-- was carried out. The static three-point belt being the reference, the restraint systems were tested in frontal impacts at 14 m/s (50 km/h) and more.
