New Head Restraint Stops Whiplash

Posted on October 2, 2008 5:10 am under Car Accidents

A new mechanical system is being developed by Lear Corporation to meet new U.S. head-restraint safety system requirements. The system is designed so that in the event of a rear impact collision, a person is pushed into his seat, an act that lead to a cushioning of the individual’s head.

The engineering behind the new system is simple. There are three parts to system: “the head restraint harp frame and two small stamped steel brackets with plastic bushing.” The brackets move the pivot the headset, and the bushing “prevents noise and rattle during the operation of the car.” More information can be found at www.designnews.com.
