Combining two ubiquitous safety devices into one bundle of passenger – coddling emergency protection, Ford has innovated the first inflatable seat belts. The new inflatable seat bels are designed to provide extra crash-cushioning and stability to rear passengers. Sue Cischke, a VP at Ford, explained: “Ford’s rear inflatable seat belt technology will enhance safety for rear-seat passengers of all ages, especially for young children who are more vulnerable in crashes.” The new puffed-out belts will make their first appearance next year on the next Explorer and will slowly creep into other Ford models from there.
