Four. for Female / Four-point safety belt

Four. for Female
Four. for Female

Present design of safety belt was based on the standard figure of adult men. But it usually leads to injuries consisting of women drivers’ breast bruising and tearing in traffic accidents. “Seat-belt Syndrome” is due to the different body structure between women and men, such as women’s larger chest circumference and more soft tissues of breast. So we want to redesign the safety belt for female. This four-point safety belt will protect female drivers and reduce trauma to breast by increasing the contact area and reducing the pressure.
