Crash Test Dummies are sophisticated anthropomorphic test devices (ATD). Designed to correlate closely with the dimensions and characteristics of the human body, they can simulate the movements of a real human during impact crash testing.
The results gathered during and after testing give a measurable indication of the protective performance of a vehicle or item of motor vehicle equipment with respect to the safety of human occupants.
Crash Test Dummies have been used in safety analysis for many years and have proved indispensable in their role in providing a repeatable and reproducible alternative to cadaver testing. ATDs offer an unparalleled opportunity to measure and evaluate the effects of collisions upon various human forms with the purpose of helping vehicles meet regulations relating to transportation and safety.

Cellbond are able to offer BAMBI manikins for child lifejacket testing. BAMBI stands for Buoyancy Aid Measurements on Babies, Infants and Children.
General Purpose Dummies are designed to be stand ins for real people when you need to run an emergency drill, trial a procedure or test a product where conditions are too dangerous for a real person to participate. Whether it is testing products like harnesses, wheelchairs, and stair lifts, or performing emergency rescue drills in lakes, dark mineshafts, smoke filled buildings, or at height our friendly bright orange general purpose/rescue dummies are the perfect stand in.
This small female dummy was developed to represent smaller occupants who drive vehicles and was introduced into the Code of Federal Regulations: Transportation 49CFR Part 572, Subpart O in March 2000. Cellbond are planning to develop Hybrid-III dummy parts, both spares and bespoke parts to individual customer requirements. More information will be available soon.
The Hybrid III 5th Female Crash Test Dummy was developed by industry in collaboration with the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Biomechanics Subcommittees, CDC and Ohio State University. The dummy represents the smallest segment of the adult population. In 2013 Cellbond was asked by a major car manufacturer to produce a version of the pelvis assembly to help with availability issues.
Introduced in 1978 the Hybrid III 50% Male is the dummy used to measure offset frontal impact crashes. This crash test dummy at 5’ 10” and 77 kgs represents the average male driver, as specified within the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 49, Part 572 (Subpart E) and conforms to the requirements of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) motor vehicle safety standards. Cellbond are planning to develop Hybrid-III dummy parts, both spares and bespoke parts to individual customer requirements. More information will be available soon.
