A summary is presented of measurement techniques and transducers that have been used, or are presently available and exhibit potential for use in the measurement of dynamic chest deflection. Various techniques and transducers are evaluated for their potential for use with dummies, cadavers, infra-human primates and living humans and those techniques and transducers found to have high potential for use with living humans are discussed in detail. Measurement requirements are summarized, inherent problems are pointed out, and recommendations for the solution of some of these problems are given.
