At a recent well-child visit for my infant son, a member of the clinical team asked about our child passenger safety practices. Unfortunately, this isn't always the norm at many practices due to barriers such as limited time during visits and a lack of awareness of best practices.
Over the past five years, CIRP engineers have utilized pediatric human body computational models to complement traditional laboratory-based research methods. We are pleased to offer two new simulation videos using the PIPER human body model that illustrate how differences in child passenger safety practices can impact a child’s injury risk in a crash.
A new study reevaluates the safety benefits of restraining children under age 2 rear-facing versus forward-facing in motor vehicles. Learn what has and hasn't changed when it comes to keeping the youngest child passengers optimally protected.
