Active and passive safety have played an essential role in solidifying ground transportation. However, safety-focused on children with some rare diseases is little attacked. This article shows the design of a diseased leg prototype into a crash test dummy Q3, the novelty of this work is based on the morphology and biocompatibility of the lower limbs, which principal characteristics of this prototype replicate the shape of a child with bone-degenerative diseases. In this work, it shows the essential features that a child dummy of this type must contain in order to generate a homologation and approval under the strictest passive safety standards used in the automotive industry. Results show the important kinematics parameters and CAD bones development necessary to conform a new numerical crash test dummy prototype.
