Belt use by pregnant women II
Full title: Belt use by pregnant women - mapping of comfort products and testing how these work in the event of a crash
The aim of the project is to:
- Survey which products are on the market, the purpose of which is to protect the stomach/fetus of pregnant car occupants.
- Purchase a selection of the identified products.
- Investigate how these products affect the belt geometry in the car.
- Conduct a series of frontal crash tests to investigate the impact these products have during the crash course.
The reason why this study should be done is preliminary results from the Skyltfonden-funded survey study show that an unexpectedly large percentage (16%) of pregnant passengers use this type of product.
