Video File: Impact force analysis of car seat during crash - should children travel backwards?

Tekscan : 15 April, 2013  (Company News)
Utilising Tekscan’s Body Pressure Measurement System (BPMS), impact force and pressure have been analysed during a TV show which blends science and technology, testing scientific theory to answer tricky questions, perform unique challenges, and investigate present and future global issues.
Video File: Impact force analysis of car seat during crash - should children travel backwards?

In an episode of the BBC TV hit series Bang Goes the Theory, Tekscan’s Body Pressure Measurement System was used in a low speed crash test to determine if rear-facing seats in an automobile are safer than those facing the front.

Europe is currently reviewing whether to increase the age limit at which children are required to ride backwards, from 9 months to around 4 or 5 years, as is law in Sweden.

The Tekscan BMPS System is used in many other pressure mapping applications, such as design and comfort testing for automotive seats and mattresses, as well as a sales tool for mattress retailers.

The Tekscan sensor is placed
in between host Jem Stansfield
(aeronautical engineer) and the
car seat. As the sensor measures
the difference in force and pressure
put on his body, when riding forwards
versus riding backwards, while
crashing into a pole.
