Objective: Our goal was to develop a pregnancy insert for the Hybrid III (First Technology, Farmington, Mich.) crash dummy allowing evaluation of the effects of various restraint conditions on energy transmission to both the fetal and maternal compartments.
Study design: A pregnancy insert with an elasticized vinyl uterine shell, simulated silicon amniotic fluid, and a 28-week simulated fetus was fitted to a female crash dummy. The fetus was instrumented with accelerometers in the head and thorax and a transducer to measure force transmission through the uterus. Thirty-nine crash tests were run under six different restraint conditions at speeds ranging from 10 to 25 miles/hr. Fetal responses were compared for different restraint conditions.

A badass, feminist, and personal deep-dive into the science and culture of pregnancy and early motherhood that debunks myths and dated assumptions, offering guidance and camaraderie to women navigating one of the biggest and most profound changes in their lives. Like most first-time mothers, Angela Garbes was filled with questions when she became pregnant. What exactly is a placenta How does a body go into labor Why is breast best What are the signs and effects of postpartum depression

This 'virtual' crash dummy is a woman at a late stage of her pregnancy, since that is when the unborn baby is at greatest risk in an accident. The basic geometry was completed in January, 2002 and much time has been devoted since then to refining the model.
Crash test dummies are used in auto safety testing. These dummies vary by height and weight to represent human populations. The 50th percentile male dummy (a dummy modeling the average male body) is most commonly used. A 5th percentile female crash test dummy (representing the smallest 5th percent of the female adult population) was introduced in 1966, but this dummy is simply a scaled version of the 50th percentile male body and does not model female bodies. Still lacking is a 50th percentile female dummy that models female-typical injury tolerance, biomechanics, spinal alignment, neck strength, muscle and ligament strength, dynamic responses to trauma, and other female-typical characteristics. Consequently, women sustain more severe injuries than men in comparable crashes.
The male body is often defined as the norm and serves as the primary object of study. In this case, crash test dummies were first developed in the U.S. to model the 50th percentile man. This means that the female part of the population was left out of the research discovery phase. Inattention to humans of different sex, size, shape, and age may result in unintended harm.
Gendered Innovation 1: Expanding Established NormsNumerous efforts are underway to expand computational models to represent greater diversity of human bodies, such as properly modeled females (Östh et al., 2016), elderly and overweight females and males, (Hu et al., 2012), and children (Carter et al., 2014). Still lacking are physical crash dummies to model these populations, with the exception of children (see Method: Rethinking Standards and Reference Models).
Test dummies were first developed for the U.S. Air Force in 1949. Women were excluded from major combat roles in the armed forces at this time, so the young, male body was given priority in the design of military safety technologies. This bias, however, was not corrected when test dummies were developed for civilian use, where both women and men of different ages, body habitus, and size have urgent safety needs. Researchers are now developing crash test dummies and computer simulations that represent average-sized women, elderly people, and obese people, though these are not yet required by law for automotive safety testing (Hu et al., 2012; Gruley, 2018; Linder & Svensson, 2019).
Method: Analyzing Sex While developing anthropomorphic dummies, researchers noted that women's normal seated position differed from what was defined as the standard seating position. Women on average sit closer to the steering wheel to compensate for shorter stature, which puts them at greater risk for internal injury in frontal collisions (Augenstein, 2005). The notion that persons of small stature are out-of-position drivers implies that the problem is the smaller-than-the-norm driver, not the technologies (i.e., car seats and settings) that have not been designed to take the safety of all drivers into consideration. Analyzing sex may improve product usability and safety. 59ce067264
