  • Standard Fixture TF-200-0000

The Humanetics Neck Pendulum Test Stand is a complete system used for the calibration and testing of neck and lumbar assemblies of crash test dummies. The body segments are tested in flexion, extension, torsion, and lateral modes. The neck or lumbar performance specifications for these tests are velocity at impact, pendulum acceleration, pendulum velocity, rotation, forces, and moments. 

The pendulum is compliant with specifications as written in the United States Code of Federal Regulation, Title 49, Part 572 relating to weight, center-of-gravity, moment of inertia, and mounting location of the pendulum accelerometer.
