Side Impact Cushion Technology (SICT)™ Explained
Introducing AHR™ With SICT™
AHR Side Impact Cushion Technology is designed to improve the chance of surviving a crash, the forces on an occupant need to be minimised. Modern vehicle manufacturers have worked hard to minimise occupant injury by introducing crumple zones and airbags which reduce the impact force exerted on the occupant. In a frontal crash the car has substantial amount of crumple zone distance but in a side impact crash there is minimal distance to absorb the crash energy.
In response to this, Safe-n-Sound introduces the Active Head Restraint (AHR)™ with Side Impact Cushion Technology (SICT)™.
These two features are designed to work together to contain the head and to minimise impact forces that may be delivered to the child's head.
How Does SICT™ Work?
Side Impact Cushion Technology (SICT)™ - Head Protection
Dual layer head protection minimises the energy generated in a side impact crash. The inner SICT layer provides 180° protection around your child’s head, whilst the outer SICT layer on the seat exterior absorbs immediate crash energy.
Side Impact Cushion Technology (SICT)™ - Torso Protection
Torso SICT™ minimises the energy felt on your child’s chest and vital organs, reducing crash forces to a safer level. Torso forces are lower and dispensed over a longer period of time.
Active Head Restraint (AHR)™ - is designed specifically with deeper side wings that shield and contain your child’s head in a side impact crash. AHR grows with your child working with SICT to contain your child’s head and to minimise impact forces.
