The SID-IIs is currently the only existing 5th percentile sized side impact dummy. Its unique capabilities include the ability to measure individual thoracic and abdominal rib deflections and accelerations. This dummy is currently being tested to evaluate its biofidelity, durability, padding sensitivity, and repeatability. These tests include various pendulum impacts and dynamic system sled tests.
