Airbag Effects on the Out-of-Position Child * 720442

This paper describes experiments involving airbag systems. Because there is the least amount of data on the tolerance of children to impact, the out-of-position child was used in the experiments.
After careful consideration it was decided that a primate of approximately the same weight as a child be used, which would provide the most realistic evaluation of potential injuries. The animal chosen for the experimental program was the baboon.
Five distinct positions were chosen and this paper describes in detail the experimental physiological conditions and results.
