The goal of the project is to investigate on the optimal seatback angle for infant carriers to be carried out by Universidad Pontificia Comillas (from hereafter, Comillas) in collaboration with Karwala Spótka z Ograniczona Odpowiedzialnoscia Spótka Komandytowa (from hereafter, Karwala).
The objective of the research proposal is to understand the range of spine angles that are biomechanically more favorable in the event of an impact when a child (age to be specified by Karwala) is using a child restraint system (CRS) in a passenger car.
Due to the impossibility of performing this study using human surrogates, most of the research will be based on computational simulations, that would be partially validated by experimental data whenever possible.
