In the event an ambulance is involved in a collision, standards have been put in place to ensure the safety of the paramedics, patients, and passengers from falling/sliding debris within the ambulance. Calspan conducts non-destructive crash testing using our 1MN sled for ambulance equipment, including equipment mounts, cabinet testing, passenger seats, and compartment integrity. 

This video demonstrates the importance of testing ambulance hardware, including equipment mounts, cabinets, passenger seats, and even compartment integrity can be tested on either our HYGE sled or in our state-of-the-art full vehicle crash test laboratory.
