First, let’s define whiplash. It occurs when the head and torso move in opposite ways during an impact. It occurs during any impact or blow that causes your head to jerk forward or backward, which causes neck strain. The force stretches and tears the muscles and tendons in the neck. 

The whiplash injury lessening seats are designed to to cushion the passenger’s head and chest simultaneously during a low speed collision, which helps minimize injuries. 

How did Toyota design the seats? They re-assessed the positioning of the seatback frame and headrest and also increased the rigidity of the seat frame.
