I am currently doing a research project as a part of my fourth year in
kinesiology. This in the study I am determining a better seat belt
design. I would like to know the amount of pressure the chest can
withstand before damage incurs such as broken ribs, soft tissue damage
(beyond bruising). In the end I would like to show how large harness
such as a 5 point race car style harness would provie better
protection in a crash and reduce injuries related to the seat belt.

Thanks in advance.
