A 23 month old child sustained a severe head injury when a crib tent inverted and collapsed, lodging the child’s head against the top rail of the crib. A testing program was conducted using anthropomorphic child dummies to analyze the inversion danger during a crib tent collapse event. The primary goal of this investigation is to make crib tent designers, retailers, and users more aware of the inversion danger and to identify a design alternative to help reduce the number of these types of injuries.
