3 and 6 Years Old Child Anthropometry and Comparison with Crash Dummies 2006-01-2354

The objective of this paper is to compare the external anthropometry of 3 and 6 year old French children with the corresponding existing crash test dummies.
An anthropometry study has been performed on about 70 (respectively 80) French children aged 3 years (respectively 6). More than 40 external measurements have been acquired on each subject. They include dimensions in standing and sitting positions: heights, lengths, circumferences, weight, etc. Mean, standard deviation, minimum and maximal values are given and compared with other existing international databases. From a global point of view, dimensions observed in this study appear 12% higher than in others. Dimensions are more specifically compared with corresponding crash test dummies in order to evaluate the validity of these anthropomorphic test devices.
