Now we can offer a complete family
of Anthropomorphic Test Devices (ATD's) commonly known as Crash Test
Dummies for use in the vehicle safety industry with a major emphasis
still on the automotive markets but again expanding into the fields
of aerospace, aviation, biomechanics and various segments of science
All of the various Anthropomorphic Test Devices available are tested
and certified to regulatory specifications and safety standard
guidelines and they are fully instrumented with calibrated precision
load cell devices.

General ATD Information
The Hybrid II and III family of dummies
Consists of a 3-year-old, 6-year-old, 10-year-old, small adult
female, mid-sized adult male and large sized adult male. These
dummies are all designed for use in (FIT) - frontal impact testing
of automotive restraint systems. The 3-year-old, 6-year-old, small
female and mid-sized male are also specified for (FIC) - frontal
impact compliance testing.
Side-Impact Dummy (SID)
The first SID was developed in the 1970s for the NHTSA. SID, a
Hybrid II-type dummy with an adapted thorax, is the official dummy
used in government-required side-impact testing of new cars. These
dummies primarily measure injury risk to the head, chest and pelvis.
These were created by the Occupant Safety Research Partnership of
USCAR, an U.S. consortium. SID II's represents a small female who is
5 feet tall and 110 pounds, and is a scaled-down version of BioSID.
This dummy is based on a torso design by General Motor's researchers,
in collaboration with the SAE Company.
It has more sensors and a more biofidelic (human-oid) body than a
SID/Hybrid III, thus allowing engineers a better assessment of the
risk of injury to internal organs.
It utilises a Hybrid III's head, neck and legs and is instrumented
to assess the potential for head, neck, shoulder, abdominal,
thoracic, pelvic and leg injuries.
BioRID and RID-2
These are mid-sized male dummies being developed in Europe for
assessing the potential for "whiplash"-type neck complaints in
low-speed rear-end impacts.
EuroSID and EuroSID-2
The European Experimental Vehicles Committee developed this
variation of SID in the mid-1980s, and is used to determine
compliance with side-impact requirements within Europe. An updated
version is called EuroSID-2.
For testing restraint system effectiveness in frontal crashes,
Europe uses the Hybrid III dummy.
As the auto industry becomes more global, this ongoing worldwide
effort, led by the International Standard-isation Organisation, aims
to develop a harmonised side-impact dummy that will be useable
throughout the world.
The Child Restraint Air Bag Interaction dummy is used to evaluate
air bag exposure to infants restrained in child safety seats that
are placed in the front seat.
CRABI dummies come in three sizes: six-month-old, 12-month-old and
