Seat Belt Design and Testing

Measure the pressure distribution of a seat belt against the body.

Improve Seat Belt Design & Comfort With Pressure Measurement


Seat belts are a very important safety device in a vehicle but ineffective if not worn properly. Studies of why people don’t use their seat belts highlight comfort as a critical factor.


The I-Scan™ pressure and force mapping system can assist with comfort design of seat belts. I-Scan can measure the pressure that is experienced by the driver when the seat belt is pulled taut against the body, such as during extreme braking or collision conditions.

The I-Scan pressure mapping system provides data in real-time and 2D or 3D pressure displays. Areas experiencing high pressures can easily be identified, compared and adjusted to maximize comfort while maintaining the safety of the passenger. With the help of our highly qualified sales and engineering support team, each system may be configured to meet your specific needs.
