Active Headrest Mechanism

The seating device reduces passenger whiplash injuries in rear-end collisions. The mechanism works during a collision by tilting the headrest while moving it up to lessen sudden change in the angle of the neck and torso, thereby reducing the strain on occupants.
It has been introduced on Toyota models since fiscal 2007.

< Exhibition Highlights >

Left (Anti-Clockwise) Wound Coil Spring
By adopting the coil springs which are wound in the reverse direction for the front McPherson Strut Suspension, the improvement over the symmetry of the RH & LH geometry could be realized, and it results in high freedom in designing /packaging and vehicle stability.
>>>Technical Information1 , Technical Information2

Tokyo Motor Show 2005

- The Company exhibited several seats of passenger cars which visitors can sit and experience comfort in seat and these functions. 

<Automotive Seats>
- Driver's seat for Impreza <<< Features
This seat shape fits the body by using a trim cover bonding method.

- Driver's seat for Legacy (Export specification) <<< Features

- Passenger's seat for Fuga <<< Features
Blowing warm/cold air from inside of the seat makes passenger comfortable.

- Armrest Adjuster <<< Features
Spring clutch function is adapted.

- Hinge unit for Console boxes <<< Features
High torque is exerted in a small space, and it allows arbitrary angle adjustment.  

<Suspension springs>
- Thick Wall Tubular Stabilizer Bars <<< Features
This stabilizer bar uses electric resistance welded tube of high wall thickness ratio (ratio of wall/outer diameter : 18 - 30 %), and has the equivalent durability to solid material and is 20 % or more lighter than solid material. 

- Accumulator <<< Features
Metal bellows seal initial gas so as to realize maintenance free solution.
