Monitoring car crash injuries - the Rhône Registry

The Rhône Registry allows researchers to analyse injuries characteristics according to road user types in order to understand severity aspects per vehicle type and also follow how people will recover and live after the accident.

For instance, the team published a paper in 2006 that compared children and adults injuries in cars to evaluate how well they were protected in cars :

  • Are restrained children under 15 years of age in cars as effectively protected as adults?

and in 2016 a paper on how whiplash injuries will have long term effects on people's lives :

  •  Five years after the accident, whiplash casualties still have poorer quality of life in the physical domain than other mildly injured casualties: analysis of the ESPARR cohort
