Matthew R. Maltese, PhD

Safety Advisor

Dr. Maltese began his career in the 1990's at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at a critical time for safety - when a promising device (the airbag) was proliferating in new automobiles, but the device led to unintended injuries and deaths in children and small statured adults. Dr. Maltese's R&D efforts contributed to revisions to the regulations that governed airbags (FMVSS 208), as well as child restraints (FMVSS 213) and side impact injury countermeasures (FMVSS 214). In 2005 he continued his focus on pediatric injury prevention by joining the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania. His research is widely publishes, and has served on the Board of Directors of the Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine and as an editor of the journal Traffic Injury Prevention. He is presently a co-founder of a startup medtech company, and he teaches at the University of Pennsylvania (Bioengineering) part-time. For NapUp, Matt provides strategic and tactical advising on matters pertaining to product safety including crash test program design and data interpretation.
