Crash Test Dummies Are Getting Fatter Because People Are Too!

no title

With over 30% of Americans being overweight, the auto industry has had to make some adjustments…

Basically, they’ve had to fatten up their crash test dummies!

If a person is obese, they apparently have a 78% higher risk of dying in a car crash!!

The larger a person is, the more out of position they are in the car seat, which makes things really dangerous during an accident.

That’s why Humanetics has created their latest crash test dummy: Thor!

Humanetics is the place to go for crash test dummies, and Thor is their most advanced model yet. Mainly because it represents a 266-pound person, more accurately representing an average human.

We can save lives with new tech but we can save even more lives through embracing a healthy lifestyle!

Check out the video (below) to get a look at Thor in action!
