Pediatric Thoracic Compliance

The objective of this project is to measure the force versus deflection properties of the pediatric chest during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and to use those force versus deflection characteristics to develop scale factors that can be used as a basis for biofidelity corridors for the pediatric anthropomorphic test device (ATD) for the chest.
