01_Active head rests #AHR

Active headrests reduce the danger of neck injury in the event of a rear impact.
By minimizing backwards movement of the head, active headrests reduce the risk of neck or head injury.

Crash Sensors immediately recognize an impact situation and a pressurized gas generator is triggered, moving the headrests forward to gently support the head. The vertebrae and muscles of the neck are protected from the strain and trauma that can result from an accident.
