05 Jun Meet Graham
Meet Graham, the Crash Test Not-So Dummy, and the Only Human ‘Designed’ to Survive a Car Crash
Created in a collaboration between an artist, a trauma surgeon, and crash investigation expert, to build “an interactive lifelike sculpture … designed with bodily features that might be present in humans if they had evolved to withstand the forces involved in crashes”.
Graham is part of the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) in Australia’s new Toward Zero road safety campaign to raise safety awareness. He took six months to build and cost approximately $149,000. Lots of research and time and money went into his design….clearly very little effort went into his not-so-stunning good looks.
A larger skull intended to absorb impact. No neck, reducing the chances for spine and back injuries. Air sacks around the ribs for added padding and protection. His knees have movement in all directions to lessen injury.
Assuming you are not built like Graham, you can be seriously injured in a car accident. When the unthinkable happens, you need a car crash attorney. Call the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess now to schedule a free consultation with one of our attorneys today. Don’t Delay, Call Clay!! 1-877-234-7573
