Researchers at No. 1-Ranked U.S. Children's Hospital Work with Industry to Develop a Child Crash Dummy that's More True-to-Life

es than an adult's or younger child's do. To address this gap, researchers at CHOP and the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) are working together to develop brain injury criteria for a 6- to 10-year-old child. With these criteria established, an accurate computational model can be developed that mimics the ATD currently available for this age group, to predict the likelihood of brain injury.

Using Bumper Cars to Understand the Pediatric Spine

The cervical spine controls the movement of the head during a crash, and recent research indicates that the spine used in the pediatric ATD may be significantly more rigid than an actual child's spine. Researchers at CHOP recognized the implications of this disparity and partnered with Rowan University, Takata Corporation, and the University of Virginia to devise a unique solution to quantify the motion of a typical adult's and child's spine: bumper cars.

The team measured the "crash" severity in the amusement park ride, then developed a sled test to mimic this experiment in a lab. Subjects were fitted with sensors to track the precise movements of the head, neck and spine during a safe crash force.
