Leg/foot, right
Restraints and dummy kinematics
Dummy movement was reasonably well controlled. The driver's seat tipped toward the door. During rebound, the dummy's head hit the roof rail.

Action shot taken during the frontal offset crash test.

The dummy's position in relation to the steering wheel and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was maintained well.

Forces on the head when the dummy loaded the airbag were moderately high, indicating the possibility of head injuries.

Smeared greasepaint indicates where the dummy's head hit the roof rail. Head acceleration from this hit was negligible.
