Are you protected?
70% of people
injured in collisions each year report a
soft tissue injury
such as whiplash.
Whiplash injuries have been shown to
occur at speeds as low as 15 km per hour!
The top of the headrest should be
at least as high as the top of the head.
Protect Yourself With These Easy Steps:
Effectively set headrests
reduce rearward motion of an occupant's head
in a rear-end collision and decrease the
likelihood of sustaining a whiplash injury.
Ideally, the distance between the
headrest and the back of the head
should be less than 6 centimeters.
The centre of the headrest should be slightly above the top of the ear.
