Seat testing to investigate the female neck injury risk – preliminary results using a new female dummy prototype
Paper i proceeding, 2012

Dynamic performance tests are conducted to assess the neck injury risk. To date seats are assessed based on sled tests mostly using a BioRID which is based on the 50%ile male anthropometry. Since females sustain whiplash associated disorders (WAD) more often than males, their injury risk needs to be addressed as well.
