Objectives. Motor vehicle injury is the leading cause of injury death for children 4 to 8 years of age. Although booster seat use in this age group substantially reduces the risk of injury, most children are currently restrained by seatbelts designed for adults.

The objective of this study was to measure booster seat use directly, determine factors predictive of proper child restraint, and Cited by: About this Book Catalog Record Details.

Children diagnosed with behavioural conditions were excluded from this study. Informed consent was obtained from the parent/guardian prior to the initiation of each trial. Children whose legs are too short to allow them to bend their knees when sitting upright against the vehicle seat back will slouch down when seated directly on the cushion to bend their knees.

Study of older child restraint/ booster seat fit and NASS injury analysis. DOT/HS National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Vehicle Research and Test Center, East Liberty, OH, A child safety seat, sometimes called a infant safety seat, child restraint system, child seat, baby seat, car seat, or a booster seat, is a seat designed specifically to protect children from injury or death during vehicle commonly these seats are purchased and installed by car owners, but car manufacturers may integrate them directly into their vehicle's design and generally.

project was to compare the injury risk for children and adults who are age-optimally restrained (by seat row and restraint type) and understand the influence of the contributing factors to the risk. Data were used from the Partners for Child Passenger Safety (PCPS) study and the National Automotive Sampling System (NASS).

Motor vehicle collisions (MVCs) are the leading cause of injury death among children aged 4 to 7 years in the United States. 1 Belt-positioning booster seats have been recommended as restraints for these children, who have outgrown forward-facing safety seats but are too small to properly fit in seat belts.

Motor vehicle collisions remain the leading cause of death for children aged 4 to 8 years. 1 Booster seats are more effective than seat belts at reducing the risk of injury for these older children. 2 Nonetheless, only an estimated 6% to 19% of 4- to 8-year-old children currently ride in booster seats, while the majority use only an adult seat.

The rear seat children also benefit from seat belt technology such as pretensioner and load limiters. Sled tests using a HIII 6y showed that belt load limiting and pretensioning resulted in. Data from the Partners for Child Passenger Study shows that booster seat use among children ages years has increased and its use is beneficial in terms of injury risk when compared to vehicle.

In the study, the agency dynamically tested the belt positioning devices under the conditions then-specified for testing child restraints under FMVSS No. A Hybrid II 3-year-old and 6-year-old dummy were used (which, inwere the state-of-the-art dummies used to test child restraints), and a Hybrid III 5th percentile female adult dummy.

Incorrect use of child restraints can lead to serious injury to the child in the event of a crash. A study conducted for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the mid s found that four-out-of-five child restraints were being used incorrectly.

A recently completed NHTSA-sponsored study updates that research.A prior study on belt fit showed that most children under age 11 would benefit from using a booster to achieve a good belt fit. Field data indicated that children aged 4–10 using boosters were 30–45% less likely to sustain injury in a crash compared to children using seat belts alone [ 3, 4, 5 ].Abstract Objectives The objective was to evaluate the effectiveness of belt‐positioning booster seats, compared with no restraint use and with seat belt use only, during motor vehicle crashes among.
