Cranfield Impact Centre wheelchair crash tests

“Cranfield Impact Centre just completed a series of crash tests of a wheelchair/occupant and tie down restraint system for in-vehicle use. The successful tests were conducted to the ISO 7176 Part 19 standard.

A requirement of the standard is that the tracking of the occupant is captured to determine the maximum trajectories of various body parts. The crash test dummy used by CIC used Photron 6D Markers which provided reliable and accurate data. Used in conjunction with Photron, high speed cameras the data was generated with a high resolution. CIC Manger Dr Jim Watson commented “The technical support from Photron was exceptional, in assisting us with the generation of the high speed images.”
