Almost all cars on the road include headrests. Many drivers and passengers believe these devices are meant to improve comfort. However, they are not only luxury reasons but also for comfort reasons.
These headrests improve drivers and passengers' safety by reducing the impact of whiplash. For instance, when a car is hit from the rear, drivers and passengers' heads usually tend to jolt backward.
With headrests, an individual's head will not bend backwards as much, preventing serious neck and possible spine injuries. While headrests cannot always prevent injuries, they can usually reduce the impact of the injuries.
