Ford has developed the world’s first inflatable seat belts, which provide extra safety and crash protection for people sitting in the rear of a vehicle.

The inflatable seatbelts combine the attributes of traditional seat belts and air bags to better hold you in place in the event of a car accident. According to Sue Cischke, Ford group vice president of Sustainability, Environmental and Safety Engineering, the inflatable seat belts "will enhance safety for rear-seat passengers of all ages, especially for young children who are more vulnerable in crashes."
