Inflatable safety belts

Ford will unveil his new inflatable safety belt at the 2006 North American International Auto Show.

The tubular-shaped inflatable bag for backseat passengers can deploy inside a shoulder belt in the event of a crash. The expected result is a further reduction in head and neck injury risk.


The company will also present at the Detroit show the second-row BeltMinder™ technology that will alert the driver when second row passengers have not buckled their safety belts.
