Whiplash protection system is generally integrated into the seat of the car providing support to the spinal with modified backrest. It was first introduced by Volvo in 1998, and since then has been the standard safety system in all the Volvo car models. When the whiplash protection system is deployed, the front seat headrest and backrest can be pushed backward to change the position of the occupants.
