Dynamic injury tolerances for long bones of the female upper extremity. (1/79)

This paper presents the dynamic injury tolerances for the female humerus and forearm derived from dynamic 3-point bending tests using 22 female cadaver upper extremities. Twelve female humeri were tested at an average strain rate of 3.7+/-1.3%/s. The strain rates were chosen to be representative of those observed during upper extremity interaction with frontal and side airbags. The average moment to failure when mass scaled for the 5th centile female was 128+/-19 Nm. Using data from the in situ strain gauges during the drop tests and geometric properties obtained from pretest CT scans, an average dynamic elastic modulus for the female humerus was found to be 24.4+/-3.9 GPa. The injury tolerance for the forearm was determined from 10 female forearms tested at an average strain rate of 3.94+/-2.0%/s. Using 3 matched forearm pairs, it was determined that the forearm is 21% stronger in the supinated position (92+/-5 Nm) versus the pronated position (75+/-7 Nm). Two distinct fracture patterns were seen for the pronated and supinated groups. In the supinated position the average difference in fracture time between the radius and ulna was a negligible 0.4+/-0.3 ms. However, the pronated tests yielded an average difference in fracture time of 3.6+/-1.2 ms, with the ulna breaking before the radius in every test. This trend implies that in the pronated position, the ulna and radius are loaded independently, while in the supinated position the ulna and radius are loaded together as a combined structure. To produce a conservative injury criterion, a total of 7 female forearms were tested in the pronated position, which resulted in the forearm injury criterion of 58+/-12 Nm when scaled for the 5th centile female. It is anticipated that these data will provide injury reference values for the female forearm during driver air bag loading, and the female humerus during side air bag loading.  (+info)

Driver distance from the steering wheel: perception and objective measurement. (2/79)

OBJECTIVES: This study assessed the accuracy of driver perceptions of the distance between the driver's nose and the steering wheel of the vehicle as a factor in considering driver disconnection of an airbag contained in the steering wheel for preventing injury to the driver in an accident. METHODS: A cross-sectional survey of 1000 drivers was done to obtain perceived and objective measurements of the distance between the driver's nose and the steering wheel of the vehicle. RESULTS: Of 234 drivers who believed that they sat within 12 inches of the steering wheel, only 8 (3%) actually did so, whereas of 658 drivers who did not believe that they sat within 12 inches of the wheel, 14 (2%) did so. Shorter drivers were more likely than taller ones to both underestimate and overestimate their seating distance. CONCLUSIONS: Considerable misperception of drivers' distance from the wheel indicates that drivers should objectively measure this distance.  (+info)

Air bags and ocular injuries. (3/79)

PURPOSE: This investigation retrospectively examined ocular injuries associated with air bag deployment to gain a better appreciation of potential risk factors in motor vehicle accidents. National statistics regarding the efficacy of air bags were reviewed. METHODS: Review of the literature from 1991 to 1998 identified 44 articles describing 97 patients with air-bag-induced ocular injuries. Variables extracted from each case were age, sex, height, position in the car, eye wear, vehicle impact speed, visual acuity, and specific ocular injuries. RESULTS: Corneal abrasions occurred in 49% of occupants, hyphemas in 43%, vitreous or retinal hemorrhages in 25%, and retinal tears or detachments in 15%. The globe was ruptured in 10 patients. Patients involved in higher-speed accidents (over 30 mph) sustained a greater percentage of vitreous or retinal hemorrhages and traumatic cataracts, while those at slower speeds were more prone to retinal tears or detachments. In a subset of 14 patients with serious ocular injuries, the impact speed of 11 patients was recorded at 30 mph or less. Slower speed may be a risk factor for some ocular injuries. Occupant height was not a significant factor. National statistics confirm that air bags reduce fatalities in motor vehicle accidents. However, children sitting in the front seat without a seat belt and infants in passenger-side rear-facing car seats are at risk for fatal injury. CONCLUSION: Air bags combined with seat belts are an effective means of reducing injury and death in adults during motor vehicle accidents. However, this study has documented a wide variety of ocular injuries associated with air bag deployment. It is hoped that researchers can develop modifications that continue to save lives while minimizing additional harm.  (+info)

Airbag associated fatal head injury: case report and review of the literature on airbag injuries. (4/79)

Airbags have been shown to significantly reduce mortality and morbidity in motor vehicle crashes. However, the airbag, like the seat belt, produces its own range of injuries. With the increasing use of airbags in the UK, airbag associated injuries will be seen more often. These are usually minor, but in certain circumstances severe and fatal injuries result. Such injuries have been described before in the medical literature, but hitherto most reports have been from North America. This is the first case report from the UK of serious injury due to airbag deployment and describes the case of a driver who was fatally injured when her airbag deployed in a moderate impact frontal collision where such severe injury would not normally have been anticipated. The range of airbag associated injuries is described and predisposing factors such as lack of seat belt usage, short stature, and proximity to airbag housing are discussed. The particular dangers airbags pose to children are also discussed.  (+info)

Child seating position and restraint use in three states. (5/79)

OBJECTIVE: Because of risks from deploying airbags to children in front seats, extensive publicity has been aimed at getting them restrained and in rear seats. The objective of this study was to assess restraint use and seating positions among children in vehicles with and without airbags. METHOD: Surveys were conducted in cities in Michigan, North Carolina, and Texas 1998. Restraint use and seating position were noted for all children, as well as their estimated age, driver belt use, airbag presence, and vehicle license plate number. RESULTS: Fewer children were observed in the front seats of vehicles with passenger airbags (24%) than in vehicles without them (36%). Most of the children seated in front were ages 7-12 (44%-61%), followed by 3-6 year olds (29%-35%). Very few children ages 0-2 were seated in front (5%-12%). The overwhelming majority of children ages 0-2 were restrained. However, children ages 3-6 seated in the front were least likely to be restrained and most likely to be improperly restrained. Restraint use was higher when the driver was belted, but about 30% of 3-6 year olds were unrestrained even with a belted driver. CONCLUSIONS: Efforts should continue to educate parents about the importance of correct restraint use and rear seating for children, particularly once children move from child safety seats into adult belts. Efforts also should be made to enforce the seat belt laws that exist in every state.  (+info)

Driver air bag effectiveness by severity of the crash. (6/79)

OBJECTIVES: This analysis provided effectiveness estimates of the driver-side air bag while controlling for severity of the crash and other potential confounders. METHODS: Data were from the National Automotive Sampling System (1993-1996). Injury severity was described on the basis of the Abbreviated Injury Scale, Injury Severity Score, Functional Capacity Index, and survival. Ordinal, linear, and logistic multivariate regression methods were used. RESULTS: Air bag deployment in frontal or near-frontal crashes decreases the probability of having severe and fatal injuries (e.g., Abbreviated Injury Scale score of 4-6), including those causing a long-lasting high degree of functional limitation. However, air bag deployment in low-severity crashes increases the probability that a driver (particularly a woman) will sustain injuries of Abbreviated Injury Scale level 1 to 3. Air bag deployment exerts a net injurious effect in low-severity crashes and a net protective effect in high-severity crashes. The level of crash severity at which air bags are protective is higher for female than for male drivers. CONCLUSIONS: Air bag improvement should minimize the injuries induced by their deployment. One possibility is to raise their deployment level so that they deploy only in more severe crashes.  (+info)

Traumatic bilateral internal carotid artery dissection following airbag deployment in a patient with fibromuscular dysplasia. (7/79)

This case describes a 39-yr-old male, presenting with left hemiplegia after a road traffic accident involving frontal deceleration and airbag deployment. Brain computerized tomography (CT) scan revealed a right parietal lobe infarct. Contrast angiography demonstrated bilateral internal carotid artery dissection and fibromuscular dysplasia. The patient was treated with systemic heparinization. Neurological improvement, evidenced by full return of touch sensation, proprioception and nociception began 10 days after the injury. To our knowledge, this is the first case report of carotid artery dissection associated with airbag deployment. Forced neck extension in such settings may result in carotid artery dissection because of shear force injury at the junction of the extracranial and intrapetrous segments of the vessel. Clinicians should consider carotid artery injury when deterioration in neurological status occurs after airbag deployment. We propose that the risk of carotid artery dissection was increased by the presence of fibromuscular dysplasia.  (+info)

Mortality reduction with air bag and seat belt use in head-on passenger car collisions. (8/79)

To assess the efficacy of occupant protection systems, the authors measured the mortality reduction associated with air bag deployment and seat belt use for drivers involved in head-on passenger car collisions in the United States. They used a matched case-control design of all head-on collisions involving two passenger cars reported to the Fatality Analysis Reporting System in 1992-1997, and driver mortality differences between the paired crash vehicles for air bag deployment and seat belt use were measured with matched-pair odds ratios. Conditional logistic regression was used to adjust for multiple effects. There were 9,859 head-on collisions involving 19,718 passenger cars and drivers. Air bag deployment reduced mortality 63% (crude odds ratio (OR) = 0.37, 95% confidence interval (CI): 0.32, 0.42), while lap-shoulder belt use reduced mortality 72% (OR = 0.28, 95% CI: 0.25, 0.31). In a conditional logistic model that adjusted for vehicle (rollover, weight, age) and driver (age, sex) factors, air bags (OR = 0.71, 95% CI: 0.58, 0.87) and any combination of seat belts (OR = 0.25, 95% CI: 0.22, 0.29) were both associated with reduced mortality. Combined air bag and seat belt use reduced mortality by more than 80% (OR = 0.18, 95% CI: 0.13, 0.25). Thus, this study confirms the independent effect of air bags and seat belts in reducing mortality.  (+info)

to the editor: Exposure to high noise levels associated with air bag deployment during an automobile accident may result in irreversible hearing loss. Laboratory studies have established that peak acoustic pressure of 170 dB produced during air bag deployment can induce harmful inner ear effects.1 In these air bag studies, the greatest hearing loss has occurred at 4,000 Hz.. In my practice, I have seen this pattern of hearing loss in patients exposed to air bag deployment. These patients showed the greatest hearing loss in the range of 3,000 to 6,000 Hz. Since the loss occurs above the speech frequency range of 500 to 2,000 Hz, it may not be immediately apparent to the patient; audiologic testing is required to detect hearing loss in this range.. However, the injury to the ear may manifest as tinnitus, which some of my patients have reported. Tinnitus is commonly caused by damage to the inner ear and is usually associated with hearing loss in frequencies above the speech frequency range. Thus, ...

The air bag system is described in terms of four basic elements: the crash sensors and controls, the inflator, the air bag itself, and the diagnostic circuitry. A general discussion of these elements is provided and a review of air bag related injuries is also presented which includes data from various sources such as the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute, National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, Transport Canada, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The most frequently occurring accident type is the frontal collision and has been the main focus of safety efforts with regard to restraint systems. Air bags are an effective injur/prevention device, however their deployment can introduce new injury mechanisms. Air bags save lives and decrease the severity of major injuries in exchange for increasing the number of minor injuries. Certain risk factors exist during an accident involving air bag deployment including occupants sitting in close proximity to ...

Since they were mandated in new automobiles beginning in 1989, air bags have undoubtedly saved lives and prevented numerous accidents. But a recent rash of defective air bags incidents is cause for concern for driver and passenger safety.. Since 2011, air bag problems were responsible for the recall of 7.75 million vehicles. This year alone, 1.5 million vehicles have been recalled for possible defective air bags. Honda and Toyota have issued 22 recalls in 2013, covering 18 different models, over this issue. In January, General Motors announced a recall of almost 4,000 vehicles due to air bag concerns, and Chrysler recalled 750,000 Jeep vehicles in November 2012 for faulty air bags.. Hondas 2013 recall is the automakers second recent action in response to problems with the safety devices. Late in 2011, the automaker issued a recall following a number of accidents involving improperly inflating air bags, including two that resulted in fatalities.. Problems with Defective Air Bags. The issues ...
I too question the validity of these numbers. They smack of governmental cooking of the data to get the desired results. I believe in wearing seatbelts for personal protection in case of an accident.

When Ralph Nader wrote his book Unsafe At Any Speed in 1965, he documented how unsafe the Chevrolet Corvair was, and how General Motors and other car manufacturers opposed any effort to require safety features like seat belts because they didnt want to spend money on such safety features. The safety measures that he wanted car makers to implement would cost about $700 per car; the car makers were in fact spending about 23 cents a car on safety features.. The publication of Unsafe At Any Speed and the National Academy of Sciences report "Accidental Death and Disability-The Neglected Disease of Modern Society" led to Congressional hearings , legislation to require installation of seat belts, and adoption of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS). The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration was formed in 1970, and has been responsible for investigating accidents and developing and implementing safety standards in vehicle and road design. Since safety became an important ...
An idiot light , sometimes "tell-tale", is an indicator of malfunction of a system within a motor vehicle by an illuminated symbol or text legend. The "idiot light" terminology arises from popular frustration with automakers use of lights for crucial functions which could previously be monitored by gauges, so a troublesome condition could be detected and corrected early. Such early detection of problems with, for example, engine temperature or oil pressure or charging system operation is not possible via an idiot light, which lights only when a fault has already occurred - thus providing no advance warnings or details of the malfunctions extent. The Hudson automobile company was the first to use lights instead of gauges for oil pressure and the voltmeter, starting in the mid-1930s. Automotive tell-tales are regulated by automobile safety standards worldwide. In the United States, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 101 includes tell-tales in its ...
TOKYO (AP) -- Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling nearly 650,000 vehicles in Japan and repeating a recall for problems with front passenger air bag inflators announced last year, seeking to fix some 2.27 million vehicles.. The company, the worlds biggest automaker, said Wednesday that it was "renotifying" owners of some vehicles involved in a 2013 safety recall of 2.14 million vehicles. It said the initial recall was based on incomplete serial numbers from the part supplier, Japans Takata Corp.. The inflators contained improperly made propellant that could cause them to work abnormally, and possibly cause fires, in case of a crash. Toyota said it had received one report of a burn on a seat cover from faulty air bag deployment.. The recall involves about 20 Toyota models, including some Corolla compacts and Tundra pickups made in 2003-2004 and some 2002-2004 Lexus SC 430 coupes made in the U.S. The models being recalled in Japan were made in 2000-2003..

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in documents posted on its website Tuesday that GM recalled just over 6,800 of the cars in two recalls in October of last year and January. The main front drivers air bags wouldnt inflate due to a defect in the electrical connections.. In the recalls, GM dealers were to replace the steering wheel air bag coil free of charge to fix the problem. The cars covered by the two recalls were built from Dec. 16, 2011 to Feb. 1, 2012 and from April 2, 2012 to June 29, 2012, according to the documents.. The agency says GM may not have fully identified the cause of the problem, so it will see if the recall should be expanded. If the air bags dont inflate, people could be injured in a crash. But NHTSA has no reports of crashes or injuries from the problem.. GM is cooperating with the investigation and will answer NHTSAs questions, said company spokesman Alan Adler. He would not comment on whether GM had fully identified the cause. "It is a process ...
Kylan Langlinais died on April 9th when her car crashed into a utility pole in Lafayette, Louisiana. Upon impact, Langlinaiss air bag exploded, but with too much force. Shrapnel ejected from the airbag and punctured Langlinaiss right carotid artery, causing her death. Several doctors did exploratory surgery and concluded that the injury from the exploding air bag directly caused her death, as she had no other injuries. Langlinais mother received a recall notice from Honda in connection with the airbags just two days after her daughters car accident.. According to KOIN6, Langlinaiss mother filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Honda and Takata claiming that the two companies covered up the air bag defect for more than ten years. In May, Tanaka finally recalled 33.8 million air bag inflators, after much pressure from the government. This was the largest auto recall in United States history. Although the company is still trying to determine the cause of the defect, it is possible that the ...
Improved survival rates and earlier discharge of preterm (,37 weeks gestation at birth) and low birth weight (,2500 g at birth) infants have increased the number of small infants who are being transported in private vehicles. Car safety seats that are used correctly are 71% effective in preventing fatalities attributable to passenger car crashes in infants.1 To ensure that preterm and low birth weight infants are transported safely, the proper selection and use of car safety seats or car beds are necessary.. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 213, which establishes design and dynamic performance requirements for child-restraint systems, applies to children weighing up to 65 lb. However, the standard has no minimum weight limit and does not address the relative hypotonia and risk of airway obstruction in preterm or low birth weight infants. Most rear-facing car safety seats are designated by the manufacturer for use by infants weighing more than 4 or 5 lb, with some designated for use ...

A passenger detection system is provided. The passenger detection system utilized an oscillation circuit that causes an antenna electrode to emit an electric field that is disrupted by the electrical characteristics of n object placed on the seat. This disruption alters the current and phase of the signal in the antenna electrode. By comparing the current flowing in the antenna electrode and/or the difference between the phases of the signal is the antenna electrode and the oscillation circuit output signal with predetermined threshold values, it is possible to detect the presence of a passenger in a reliable and inexpensive manner. Environmental sensors are used to make the determination more accurate. Humidity, moisture and/or grounding condition are detected and used to alter processing, values or calculations.
If the future of driving is autonomous, testing and legislation must be in accord to assure public safety when autonomous vehicles (AVs) begin to deploy. In early September, thanks to a bipartisan effort to develop legislation for self-driving or autonomous vehicles (AVs), the U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed a bill sponsored by Rep. Robert Latta (R-OH) known as the SELF DRIVE (Safely Ensuring Lives Future Deployment and Research in Vehicle Evolution) Act. H.R. 3388 (SELF DRIVE Act) is first-of-its-kind legislation to ensure the safe and innovative development, testing, and deployment of self-driving cars. While self-driving technology is currently being developed and tested across the country, from the Silicon Valley to Detroit, federal motor vehicle safety standards need to be updated to address vehicles lacking traditional design features.. A parallel bill has been introduced by the U.S. Senate and sponsored by Senator John Thune (R-SD) called AV START (the American Vision for ...
The use of an approved safety helmet that meets US Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) 218 is the single most important factor to significantly reduce the severity of head and neck injuries resulting from motorcycle collisions [1-6]. Helmeted riders involved in collisions have been shown to have approximately 70% reduction in injury severity [2] and 40% reduction in the risk of mortality [2, 3]. The other proven benefits include a reduced likelihood of sustaining head injury, reduced requirement for and duration of ICU stay and significantly lowered health care costs associated with the treatment of these patients [4, 5].. Despite fierce protest by anti-helmet lobbyists on the grounds of infringement of individual rights and freedoms [6, 11], these data have been widely used to justify the introduction of laws mandating motorcycle riders to wear approved helmets [11, 12]. In some instances the laws have been repealed, resulting in a notable increase in morbidity and mortality [6, ...

Federal auto safety regulators are allowing General Motors to delay a large recall of potentially defective air bags, giving the company time to prove that the devices are safe and to possibly avoid a huge financial hit. The unusual move by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration buys time for GM to do long-term tests of Takata air bag inflators in older trucks and SUVs including its top-selling vehicle, the Chevrolet Silverado pickup. The recall also covers the GMC Sierra pickup and many popular full-size SUVs from the 2007 to 2011 model years. The testing could help GM fend off several recalls totaling 6.8 million trucks and SUVS with the same inflators that ultimately could cost the company $870 million, according to a GM filing with securities regulators. The delay also pushes the decision into the administration of President-elect Donald Trump, who has stated that he wants to get rid of unnecessary government regulation. Takata uses ammonium nitrate to create a small explosion to
From 1987 to 2012, frontal airbags have saved the lives of nearly 40,000 Americans. Thats enough people to fill AT&T Park in San Francisco almost to capacity. Of the more than 224 million cars and light trucks on United States roads, more than 163 million have driver airbags and an additional 144 million of these also have passenger airbags.. Although airbags have dramatically improved driver and passenger safety overall, defective airbags have been responsible for serious and sometimes fatal injuries to consumers. Common airbag injuries include airbag burns, broken bones, traumatic brain injury, vision or hearing loss, decapitation, and other serious injuries to the head, torso and arms.. If you or a loved one was injured due to a faulty airbag, you should understand the legal rights that every California consumer has. This post provides a basic introduction to defective airbag lawsuits in California. First, we discuss common causes of airbag defects that have lead to serious injuries in the ...
In 2003, Tennessee traffic records show 37,784 automobile accidents involved a deployed airbag, while an additional 371 vehicles had the airbags turned off.. The United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration identified roughly 175 fatalities caused by airbag accidents, while 104 of these fatalities included children. Of course, the first airbag fatality was not recorded until 1994, when they were becoming more common in automobiles.. Essentially, an airbag is a device used to protect individuals while traveling in our vehicles in the case of an automobile accident. There are typically a variety of airbags that deploy in modern day vehicles to protect from all angles and to aid in preventing injuries.. If you or someone you love has been involved in an automobile accident which resulted in an injury caused by an airbag, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses and damages.

However, I dont subscribe to the notion that carrying children in the back seat, next to the side impact air bags, is inherently more dangerous than in a car without them. But if a person really thought that rear seat occupants were safer _without_ the side impact air bags on the A8, they can readily be deactivated. In the case of side air bags - since they are not a federally mandated safety item - deactivation is legal, reversable and the dealer can do it at the customers request.

How do they work?. The curtain airbag activates instantaneously in the event of a side impact crash, deploying from the top of the door rails above the side window. They form a cushion between the driver or passenger and the window and stay in place if the car rolls over to protect their head.. Why do I need them?. Research conducted in the USA estimates that head protecting airbags can reduce driver deaths in the event of a side impact crash by close to 40%*. Without them, in a side impact crash there is little to protect your head from striking the side of the car or rigid objects like trees or poles.. How are curtain airbags different to other types of airbags?. Curtain airbags are one type of head protecting side airbag. There are other kinds too, such as combination head and torso designs.. Combination head and torso airbags mostly activate from the seat, but some types deploy from the door, offering you good protection to both head and body in side impact crashes. However, combination ...

General Motors plans to recall 224,000 Cadillac DeVilles because the side-impact airbags can deploy without a collision. GM said it will replace the side-impact sensing module on the 1998 and 1999 model year cars once parts are available, which GM spokesman Greg Martin said would be sometime between January and March.. "Because these are past model years and the DeVille has been completely redesigned, we basically have to go back and remanufacture these parts," Martin said.. GM received 306 complaints that the side air bag on the drivers or passengers side deployed without cause, including reports of one accident and 61 minor injuries. Martin said most of the injured suffered slight bruises.. The company sent a letter to DeVille owners last month telling them not to lean on the doors while driving. It also warned that if the airbag light stays on when the vehicle is started, the driver should immediately park and call for roadside assistance..

At a New Years party thrown by Honda in 1985, Juichiro Takada, heir to a family woven-cloth business that had branched into car seat belts, divulged a decision. His company, Takata Corp., would steer clear of mass-producing automotive air bags. The newest idea in car safety - cushions that inflated within thousandths of a second after an accident - was just too risky. One mistake could ruin the company he inherited from his father.
Using a five or six liter rubber bag, inhalation and exhalation can be practiced. Since the same air is breathed, carbon dioxide, rather than oxygen, is transferred avoiding hyperventilation.. Practice emptying and filling the lungs by slowly rebreathing air several times in a row. In this exercise the muscles of enlargement will learn to work apart from the muscles of reduction. It is important that the lungs go from extremes, empty to full. Rebreathing air from a breathing bag can be done repeatedly for about twenty seconds without discomfort.. An air bag can also be used as a rough gauge of a persons vital capacity. Another use is with an instrument. After a full inhalation, exhale into the bag filling it as much as possible. Hold the air in the bag with a finger over the tube. After positioning the instrument for playing inhale from the bag and start playing the instrument. The bag gives a visually known quantity of air.. We now offer bags from two manufacturers, both made of latex rubber. ...

The most commonly used safety equipment was helmets (69% overall), even in Toronto where use of helmets is not required of adults. This reflects the emphasis on helmets as "the major safety measure for bicyclists" in Canada [27]. Use of lights was uncommon (~20%), but it is required at night in both jurisdictions, and these laws were followed by about the same proportion of cyclists as complied with helmet legislation in Vancouver (~77%). Use of lights at dusk and dawn is also mandated by legislation, but this was much less prevalent in our study. The use of lights in the daytime was rare. Since 1990, the Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standard has required that all motor vehicles be equipped with front daytime running lights, so it is interesting that the potential for increasing the visibility of cyclists via use of lights in daytime has not been recognized either in law or by individuals. A new development related to this issue is bike share systems. These are being implemented in various ...
Airbags are an important safety feature in a kayak as they prevent the kayak from filling up completely when submerged and help it float. Airbags come in different sizes and shapes to fit different boats. Look for the right size airbag for your kayak. Ideally you will need two airbags tied into the back of your kayak, one down each side of the stern wall (or one bag if you are using a Jackson creek / fun float). In large touring kayaks you can also get an additional airbag to go in the very front of the kayak, behind the footrest plate at the bow of the boat.. ...

A side airbag system comprising a 12 liter bag to cover the BioSid chest and the abdomen down to the arm rest level, and 75 mm of padding to cover the pelvic/thigh area was evaluated by a series of sled tests at two different velocities, 10 m/s and 12 m/s. The initial bag (over) pressure was varied from 0 to 80 kPa and the bag ventilation area was varied from zero to 1500 mm2 . Compressed air was used to fill the bag. It was found that the ventilation of the bag reduced the maximum chest deflection by 30 percent and the maximum viscous criterion, VC, by 50 percent (comparison was made with the same bag without ventilation). A suitable initial bag (over) pressure was found to be about 40 kPa, when the loading of the abdomen was also taken into consideration. The results indicate that the chest deflection is proportional to the door average velocity (during the first 20 ms of deflection) to the power of about 2 and that the VC is proportional to the same velocity to the power of about 4. It was ...
Ammonium nitrate was about one-tenth the price of tetrazole, according to Upham, who also reviewed industry patents. But ammonium nitrate had a critical flaw that he says led other air bag makers to give up on it: Ammonium nitrate has five phases of varying density that make it hard to keep stable over time. A propellant made with ammonium nitrate would swell and shrink with temperature changes, and eventually the tablet would break down into powder. Water and humidity would speed the process. Powder burns more quickly than a tablet, so an air bag whose propellant had crumbled would be likely to deploy too aggressively. The controlled explosion would be just an explosion. "Everybody went down a certain road, and only Takata went down another road," says Jochen Siebert, whos followed the air bag industry since the 1990s and is now managing director of JSC Automotive Consulting. "If you read the conference papers from back then, you can actually see that people said, No, you shouldnt. Its ...

Objective This study examined associations between mothers and fathers depressive symptoms and their parenting practices relating to gun, fire, and motor vehicle safety. Methods Using data from the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study-Birth Cohort (ECLS-B), a nationally representative sample of children birth to age five, linear probability models were used to examine associations between measures of parents depressive symptoms and their use of firearms, smoke detectors, and motor vehicle restraints. Parents reported use of smoke detectors, motor vehicle restraints, and firearm ownership and storage. Results Results suggest mothers with moderate or severe depressive symptoms were 2 % points less likely to report that their child always sat in the back seat of the car, and 3 % points less likely to have at least one working smoke detector in the home. Fathers depressive symptoms were associated with a lower likelihood of both owning a gun and of it being stored locked. Fathers depressive ...

DETROIT (AP) - The U.S. government has denied requests from Ford and Mazda for more time to test Takata air bag inflators as the companies try to avoid massive recalls.. Both automakers petitioned safety regulators to escape recalls involving more than 3 million vehicles. They contend that testing by Takata didnt show problems with Ford and Mazda inflators. They also asked regulators to delay ruling on the petitions until March 31 so Ford can do more tests.. But the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the request for a delay isnt reasonable or supported by current testing. That means it will rule on the recalls without the additional tests.. Takata inflators can explode with too much force and spew out shrapnel. At least 19 people have been killed worldwide.. ...

Event Data Recorder (EDR) is a device to record vehicle and occupant information for a brief period of time before, during and after a crash event. EDR is one of the promising devices for accident reconstruction by recording important information e.g. vehicle speed, engine speed, brake switch, throttle and delta-V. However, in order to use EDR for an accident investigation, reliability and accuracy of those EDR data must be examined firstly. The aim of this study is to evaluate the characteristics of EDR and to understand the performance of EDR for the improvement of accident reconstruction with more reliable and accurate information on an accident in Japan. The analysis is based on J-NCAP crash tests from 2006 to 2009 with corresponding EDR datasets. Full-overlap frontal collision test and offset frontal collision test of fourteen car models were analyzed. The pre-crash velocity and the maximum delta-V data recorded in the EDRs are compared with the results from accelerometers and from high ...
A safety-enhanced, inside rearview mirror assembly for vehicles of the type adapted for movement between day and night positions to reduce reflected glare is disclosed. The assembly includes an energy/impact absorbing plate selected to have predetermined thickness, stiffness, cracking/permanent deformation resistance, and galvanic action passivity positioned between the glass mirror element and the day/night actuator within the mirror case. The plate absorbs the actuator impact energy should the day/night actuator be caused to impact the rear of the glass mirror element when the front of the inside rearview mirror assembly is contacted by an air bag during deployment in an accident and substantially reduces damaging protrusion of glass shards which otherwise could puncture and impair proper operation of the air bag. The plate may be spaced from the rear of the mirror element, or adhered to the mirror element preferably with a flexible, resilient adhesive laminate which doubles as an anti-scatter layer.

In California, unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death and hospitalization among children under age 16. With over 24 million vehicles, and over 170,000 thousand miles of roadway, virtually every one of Californias 8 million young people are routinely exposed to traffic-related injury, disability and death. Motor vehicle occupant injuries are among the top five causes of both death and hospitalization among children under age 16. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that, controlling for driver seat belt use and the childs seating position, child restraints are 71% effective in reducing fatality among infants and 54% effective among children aged one to four in passenger cars.. Motor vehicle-related injuries are preventable, yet motor vehicle crashes remain a leading cause of death and disability for children. In California, 4,579 children age four years and younger were hospitalized as a result of motor vehicle occupant injuries in 1994. The ...

Objective. To assess whether higher mortality rates among individuals in motor vehicle crashes in areas with low population density depend on injury type and severity or are related to the performance of emergency medical services (EMS).. Methods Prehospital and hospital deaths were studied in a population-based cohort of 41 243 motor vehicle crashes that occurred in Sweden between 1998 and 2004. The final multivariable analysis was restricted to 6884 individuals in motor vehicle crashes, to minimise the effects of confounding factors.. Results Crude mortality rates following motor vehicle crashes were inversely related to regional population density. In regions with low population density, the unadjusted rate ratio for prehospital death was 2.2 (95% CI 1.9 to 2.5) and for hospital death 1.5 (95% CI 1.1 to 1.9), compared with a high-density population. However, after controlling for regional differences in age, gender and the type/severity of injuries among 6884 individuals in motor vehicle ...
A two-ton pickup is suspended from a crane using material made of seat belts during a press conference held by Texas Department of Transportation, in front of The Institute of Texan Cultures, to announce the upcoming Click it or Ticket campaign which takes place May 21- June 3. Through grants, TxDOT will fund extra officers to be on patrol with the San Antonio Police Department, Bexar County Sheriffs Office and New Braunfels Police Department who will be on the lookout for motorists and their passengers who arent wearing their safety belts. According to the Texas Transportation Institute, 93.7 percent of Texas motorists and their passengers now buckle up, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that the 11-year campaign has resulted in 2,843 traffic fatalities. Recently in San Antonio, 4-year-old Jesse and 6-year-old Keylin Panchame were killed in a rollover crash after they were ejected from an SUV while not wearing safety belts.
