Since the introduction of torso-protecting side airbags (SAB) in the middle of the previous decade, their prevalence has increased at a considerable rate. By model year 2008, torso SAB availability increased to 65% of new vehicles sold in the United States . This increasing popularity has necessitated a scientific understanding of injury risks associated with SAB deployment. Although much has been reported regarding detrimental frontal airbag deployment , detrimental SAB deployment scenarios remain obscure.
