COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE ANALYSIS OF ADVANCED RESTRAINT SYSTEMS

Five restraint systems were evaluated in terms of comfort and convenience by ten subjects. Statistical analysis of particular questions and system comparisons uncovered potential problems. The standard lap and shoulder belt system (1974 Chevrolet Impala) was found to be more acceptable than the advanced systems. Several aspects of the systems caused difficulties or confusion, and the single-loop 'window-shade' feature most frequently produced problems.
