Contributors in anthropometry, ergonomics, and child restraint detail the latest methods for the collection, analysis, and use of data on children's size, shape, and postures in the development of crash safety equipment. The book's 14 chapters are arranged in sections on traditional anthropometry, internal and external body shape, posture and functional assessment, and anthropometric test device (crash dummy) development. Some specific topics explored include older children in automotive restraints, cervical range of motion data in children, comparison of child body dimensions with rear seat geometry, and the status of injury biomechanics for the development of child dummies. B&w photos are included. The editors are affiliated with the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute. There is no subject index.
