Seat and head restraint

Best technology for passenger safety.

ARIES Seat and head restraint test bench is designed to perform tests on different seat framework configurations in a passenger vehicle through a wide range of positioning adjustments, all of them motorized to allow an easy test setup.

The system applies a constant moment respect to the H-point by means of a closed-loop controlled load actuator system, against one, two or three seating positions simultaneously. The systems accurately measures the deformation angle and displacements caused by pseudo human backforms applying a load against the head restraints.
