Combining safety with style

Lear is a world leader in the design and manufacturing of active and static head-restraint technologies, including traditional constructions, industry leading Foam-in-Place methodologies, and exotic product manufacturing techniques. Lear's ProTec® technology was an industry-first technology introduced in 1998. Currently our ProTec® system can be found on over 7 million vehicles around the globe. This system is the only active head-restraint system with proven data showing an actual reduction of whiplash injuries – 43 percent, as reported by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.


ProTec® Active Head Restraint

Passes the FMVSS 202a dynamic seat test option (federal standard) and IIWPG dynamic test (insurance-industry standard) with a GOOD rating. In addition, Lear's ProTec® PLuS head-restraint backset significantly exceeds the FMVSS 202a static requirement, providing improved passenger comfort and vision.

One button enables adjustment in fore-aft and up-down directions simultaneously. Integrated in the headrest insert, an adjustment of 60 mm is possible in the fore-aft and up-down directions.
