New Delhi: In order to create awareness about road safety, the Australian Transport Accident Commission came up with an unique model of an evolved human specially designed to survive a car crash.
This initiative is done to show how susceptible humans are to the fatal forces involved in road accidents.
According to Times Live, Graham is the creation of a trauma surgeon, a crash investigations expert and an artist, as per the commission's website.
The idea behind it was to create a virtual human who had evolved to survive high-speed crashes.
As per reports, his advanced evolutionary adaptations include a rib cage that has sacks that would protect him like airbags in a crash and a flat face that reduces the risk of damage to his nose. Extra fatty tissue around his cheekbones would spread the energy of an impact.
Graham doesn't have neck as the neck is susceptible to injury in a car crash. While his brain is protected with added cerebrospinal fluid and ligaments, his knees are fortified with extra tendons.
To shield him from cuts and abrasions, his skin is made thicker and tougher.
Graham's redesigned body would helped him survive the typical high-speed crashes that claimed the lives of 13802 people worldwide between 2010 and 2011.
Transport Accident Commission CE Joe Calafiore said that in collisions involving vehicles, the speeds are faster, the forces are greater and the chances of survival are slimmer, added the report.
