A new method has been designed to examine car seats by technical means only, whether they fit summer conditions or not. Test procedures start with the application of a carefully wetted cloth onto the seat to be examined. The test area is then covered by a temperature controlled, electrically heated solid body bloc. This simulates the body temperature and the seat pressure of a real seat user. During test periods of standard three hours, temperature and humidity is measured beneath the test device and in the surrounding air. As an effect of the water impulse the humidity increases under the body bloc. It has been proved that good summer suitability of a car seat is characterised by moderate amount and moderate duration of increased humidity readings. Poor suitability results in higher amount and longer duration of raised humidity. The method is shown to be useful to examine full scale car seats, child safety seats and single design characteristics of car seats as well.
