    Sammanfattning : Traffic related trauma is the main cause of child fatality and injury in Europe and North America, with the large majority of fatalities and injuries occurring to children in cars. Specifically, head injury is a common outcome in injury causing car accidents. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Safety for Children in Cars – Focus on Three Point Seatbelts in Emergency Events

    Författare :Isabelle Stockman; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :Steering; Crash test dummies; Run-off road; Child restraint systems; Child safety; Emergency events; Braking; Pre-pretensioners;

    Sammanfattning : Child safety in vehicles has improved over time. One of the main factors is due to the increased restraint use by children. Nevertheless, studies show that although children are restrained, injuries still occur indicating that restraint systems have the potential for further improvement. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Child Passenger Kinematics in Emergency Manoeuvres

    Författare :Isabelle Stockman; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : ABSTRACTIn motor vehicle impacts, a child’s head is generally the most frequently injured body region, irrespective of impact direction. Head to front seat back impact has been identified as a predominant cause of injury for rear seated, seat belt restrained children, aged 3 – 13, who sustained AIS2+ head injuries in frontal impacts.

  5. 5. Car Safety for Children Aged 4-12 : real world evaluations of long-term injury outcome, head injury causation scenarios, misuse, and pre-crash maneuver kinematics

    Författare :Katarina Bohman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Child casualties in car crashes have decreased over the years. Nevertheless, occupant safety in rear seats, especially for children 4-12 years old, needs further attention because motor vehicle crashes remain the leading cause of death and long-term health consequences for children.
