Transporting children in body casts.

Journal Article (Academic article)

Automotive restraint systems for children in body or hip spica casts, who cannot be accommodated by conventional child restraints or seat belts, were investigated. A car bed restraint and a harness vest restraint were subjected to simulated 30-miles/h crash tests to assess their effectiveness. The successful systems were then tried by patients and their families and found to be convenient as well. Details of the testing, potential limitations of the systems, and a subsequent actual crash experience are reported.
