The Main Problems
1. Neck and Spinal Injury can occur when the car lands wheels down on the frame bottom
2. Hard impact on the frame bottom during a crash compresses you into the seat bottom
In a crash, when there is a hard impact to the bottom of the frame, the driver is forced into the seat bottom. The tailbone of the driver's spine is firmly belted against the rigid seat bottom. The weight of the driver's head and helmet act like a pile driver on the rigidly seated spine; thus, compressing the spine. The short duration, high G-force impact can cause:
~ Compression fractures of vertebrae
~ Ruptured disks
~ Broken neck
~ Nerve damage

Crash Pad is a seat insert fully adaptable to any race car seat
Two things are needed to help reduce Spinal Impact Forces:
1. Compressible Material
The downward motion of the driver's body and spine must be slowed down during the impact. The material used within the Crash Pad works like a shock absorber. The material's resisting force remains the same throughout the compression of the material. In fact, the shock absorbing material used in Crash Pad was found to be BEST for Reducing the Risk of Spinal Injury by U.S. Military Testing.
2. Compressible Space
The driver's body needs room to slow its downward motion. The thickness of the Crash Pad provides critical compressible space needed to slow the driver's downward motion.
The combination of uniform resistance and compressible space reduces the "peak value" of the impact and spreads the forces over a longer period of time. The goal is to reduce the G-forces to a level below the threshold of injury.
Crash Pad is LESS expensive than a Crash Helmet, BUT just as important.
