Whiplash Protection System seminar report, abstract

Whiplash Protection System, an introduction
The system was introduced in Volvo in the year 1999 in Volvo s80. It was done to protect from whiplash injuries. Whiplash protection system is installed on a seat. It is designed in such a way that if there is a rear impact, the neck of the occupant can be protected. As the occupant moves, the seat also moves with it. The head remains rigid to support the neck. Every seat which is equipped with WHIPS has a metal piece which is kept inside the backrest. If rear collision occurs, this metal piece can absorb the energy. After every event the metal piece is replaced. There is a virtual pivot which is present at the base of the seat which absorbs the main energy.

The seat moves rearward to absorb energy. The study shows that with the introduction of WHIPS, the short term injuries have reduced by 33 percent. The long term injuries have been reduced by 54 percent. In many Japanese and European vehicles, you can find front seat technology. In many testing programs, whiplash protection has been included. It was included by Euro NCAP 5 in their testing in the year 2009. Seat designs and head restraint are rated by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
