Head Drop

  • Standard Fixture TF-100-0000

The Humanetics Head Drop Test Stand is a complete and fully contained fixture for evaluating performance characteristics of a Crash Test Dummy Head Assembly. The head assembly is mounted and suspended above a rigid surface and is then released to free-fall onto a steel impact plate. The resulting head deceleration mimics a crash event and the resulting data provides for the calculation of Head Injury Criteria (HIC).

This fixture conforms to the specifications as written in the United States Code of Federal Regulations, Title 49, Part 572.
