Title: Pediatric Shoulder Response in Frontal Loading.

OMB Control Number: New Collection.

Form Numbers: None.

Type of Request: New Information Collection.

Type of Review: Regular.

Abstract: NHTSA proposes to collect information from the public to support the development of design criteria for the mobility of the shoulder of a new child-size crash test dummy. Minors age 6-14 will participate after informed consent of the parent/guardian is received. After researchers measure the participant's anthropometry (height, weight, shoulder landmarks, etc.), the participant will undergo a fun, low-intensity exercise activity under the direction of the researchers while the parent/guardian observes. The activity will involve motion of the participant's shoulder while resisting forces are collected. The data from all participants will then be compiled to develop design criteria for the crash test dummy shoulder.

Respondents: Web-based and print newspaper advertisements will be used to obtain respondents who are parent/guardian of minors aged 6-14 years.

Estimated Number of Respondents: It is estimated that a total of 24 individuals will complete the research activity.

Estimated Time per Response: Completion of the screening questions is estimated to take approximately 5 minutes for the first set and 10 minutes for the second set. The simulator discomfort questionnaire is estimated to take 2 minutes per participant.

Total Estimated Burden: 24 total hours, 1 hour per participant.

Frequency of Collection: The data collections described will be performed once to obtain the target number of valid test participants.

Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the Department's performance; (b) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (c) ways for the Department to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; and (d) ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of the collected information.
