EVALUATION OF RESEARCH ON SURROGATES FOR HUMANS IN MOTOR VEHICLE CRASHES
A review of the current status of automobile crash research utilizing cadavers, volunteers, animals, and models was conducted. The aim of the review was to determine the necessity for utilization of cadavers in such research. All viable alternatives were examined and it was the unanimous view of the committee that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration could not develop essential information for crash safety rulemaking without resorting to the use of cadavers in certain types of crash research.
