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.

What's Holding

You Back?

The most common symptom of whiplash
is pain due to mild muscle strain
or mild tearing of soft tissue.

Little or no crush damage to your vehicle can result in injury with or without immediate symptoms.
 In fact, the less damage your vehicle incurs,
the more force transfers to its occupants.

Protect Yourself With These Easy Steps:

A Canadian study found that 53% of drivers
have headrests that are so
inadequately set that they would
not protect them from injury
in a rear-end collision.


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.
