Title
Ambulance Patient Compartment Seating Integrity and Occupant Restraint
Scope
This SAE Recommended Practice describes the testing procedures required to evaluate the integrity of ground ambulance-based occupant seating and occupant restraint systems for workers and civilians transported in the patient compartment of an ambulance when exposed to a frontal or side impact. Its purpose is to provide seating and occupant restraint manufacturers, ambulance builders, and end-users with testing procedures and, where appropriate, acceptance criteria that, to a great extent ensures the occupant seating and occupant restraint systems meet the same performance criteria as is applied to a civilian vehicle’s seating and occupant restraint system. Descriptions of the test set-up, test instrumentation, photographic/video coverage, text fixture, and performance metrics are included.
