Miami, FL (PRWEB) February 23, 2008
Americans drive on the road relentlessly. Day in, day out, one can see thousands of cars on the road. Consider how many accidents you pass on your way to and from work. Consider the number of cars smashed up in the front or back. When you pay attention, the number is outrageous as many of these car accidents are not reported in the news. Even less reported are the smaller, more frequent accidents that take place on a daily basis. These are what we call "fender benders". What people don't realize is that hundreds of people are admitted into the emergency room everyday suffering from Whiplash because of "fender benders". Whiplash can occur at the slowest speeds and actually cause severe damage to the neck and spine if not treated immediately. Whiplash is greatly underestimated. That is why Whipguard was designed to prevent and lessen the occurrence of whiplash in today's society.
In 2000, an estimated 901,442 persons with neck strain/sprain injury were treated in US hospitals. Whiplash occurs in 10% of all motor vehicle accidents of which long term disability occurs. Regardless of what type of car you drive, whether it is a BMW, Ford or a Nissan, research shows that once the gap between the head rest and the head is more than 5inches apart, there is an increased chance of the occurrence of whiplash when hit from behind at even the lowest speed of 3mph! Whiplash is not to be underestimated; it can cause serious long-term injury especially in the back.
The United Nations states in an agreement concerning the adoption of uniform conditions of approval and reciprocal recognition of approval for motor vehicle equipment and parts done at Geneva on 20 March 1958, a " Head restraint " means a device whose function is to limit the rearward displacement of an adult occupant's head in relation to his torso in order to reduce the danger of injury to the cervical vertebrae of that occupant in the event of an accident".
In order to help in the prevention of whiplash, Whipguard is a head restraint that decreases the space between the head and headrest up to 2 inches! It is the only headrest designed as such. Such a head restraint is in accordance to the European and American Regulations and has been tested and approved. The Whipguard has been clinically tested and proven to help in the prevention of whiplash. Whipguard is also designed to fit any model car. Don't be fooled by regular head rests that are designed merely for aesthetic reasons. Whipguard is a professionally tested piece of equipment that has been developed for the exact purpose of reducing the space between the head and the headrest, to help in the prevention of Whiplash.
With the hustle and bustle on today's roads, secure yourself. Accidents happen and even in the slightest accident, you can incur serious long-term damage to your body.
