CHILD ABDOMINAL PROTECTION: PRESENTATION OF A NEW TRANSDUCER FOR CHILD DUMMIES

Over the past few years, the use of child restraint systems increases continuously in France. But, the accident logic data highlight that improvements are still necessary to decrease the frequency and the severity of cervical and abdominal injuries. In order to extend knowledge about lesional mechanisms of these two body segments numerous studies are undertaken to design transducers. This paper presents an intra-abdominal pressure transducer, designed and developed at the Laboratory of Impacts and Biomechanics of Inrets. For the covering abstract of the compendium see IRRD 880073.
