HUMAN VOLUNTEER TESTING OF THE INFLATABLE BELT RESTRAINT

Dynamic sled tests of the Allied Chemical Inflataband (TM) using human volunteers and anthropometric dummies were conducted at Southwest Research Institute under contract with the U.S. Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (Contract No. DOT-HS-4-00933). The testing program consisted of a series of 69 dynamic tests, 30 of which were dummy tests and 39 human tests. Test work proceeded as planned to a frontal impact equivalent to a 30-mph barrier crash of a subcompact vehicle. The human volunteers experienced no significant injury with the extent of trauma consisting primarily of mild erythema to the face and neck.
