Turns out itâ€™s Graham. Perfectly designed to withstand the impact force of a low speed crash (30km/h), his enlarged skull is filled with extra cerebrospinal fluid and ligaments to protect the brain, while the neck â€“ one of the most vulnerable body parts in a collision â€“ has been removed entirely. Sacks have been placed between each of his ribs to create airbag-like cushioning and extra joints in his legs allow him to jump out of the way quickly or bend around a car bonnet. Created in collaboration with Royal Melbourne Hospital trauma surgeon Christian Kenfield and Monash University Accident Research Centre road safety engineer Dr David Logan, Graham is a sober reminder of just how vulnerable our bodies really are.
Graham was commissioned by the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) to promote road safety.
