Anti-Whiplash

Whiplash injuries resulting from rear-end crashes are the most common disabling injury in cars. 

Autoliv's anti-whiplash system can reduce whiplash injuries by 50%, while traditional headrests have a protective effect of 5-10%. 

Our system uses the body's rearward motion to tilt the seat-back in order to optimize the full head and body support. Once this is established, the mechanism allows controlled yielding of the seat-back to absorb the crash energy.


Autoliv’s anti-whiplash solution

 

Whiplash injuries, related to a sudden distortion of the spine, can lead to long painful and debilitating symptoms over many years. They are difficult to treat and are estimated to cost society many billions dollars annually.
