The subject matter of this invention is the way of the
anatomical configuration of safety belts in cars after fastening, especially those
for women, as well as accessories needed for their realization.
Generally, safety belts in cars fasten the chest and the
abdomen of the passenger diagonally crossing the breast and exerting on it a constant
pressure due to the tightening triggers. In the case of sensitive persons this irritates
the epidermis and leads to a considerable discomfort, affecting also the collar-bone,
because the hitch is not always adequate for the given passenger.
Due to the rubbing of the safety belt the driver must,
from time to time, correct its arrangement by taking his hand off the steering wheel,
which may prove to be dangerous.
In order to minimize all those problems pads may be used,
made of some soft material wrapped around the belt and fastened alongside by means
of a zip-fastener or a burr forming a sliding muff running along the diagonal part
of the belt. Such pads neutralize, however, the constant pressure only practically,
so that the constant pressure during a farther journey may cause the formation of
a rubber and in the case of sudden braking or a collision the milch gland can be
injured, which again would require onkological operations.
The invention of an anatomically shaped safety belt consists
in its adaptation to the shape of the letter S, so that it would pass between the
For its purpose a muff-shaped pad made of elastic plastic
material, e.g. polyurethane foam, is deposited on the safety belt. Inside it is
whale-boned in order to acquire the shape of an elongated S and can be fastened
on one side.
The inside, adhering to the chest, should be reinforced
to reduce the crookedness of the belt and to minimize the pressure of lateral forces
in case of sudden braking and collisions.
The pad can be shifted along the belt adjusting it to the
needs of the passenger. Although its situation is stable, it can be additionally
fastened by means of a stay attached to the bottom part of the belt.
A special version of strap under the bust a guide slide
is provided with one or more sliders to be fastened at its lower part. In this way
it can be adjusted to the requirements of the body.
The anatomical shaping of the safety belt is to be seen
in the enclosed Fig.1, showing a woman fastened by the safety belt with such a pad.
Fig.2 presents the transverse cross-section, respectively. A part of the belt without
pads but with sliding stays can be seen in Fig.6.
The anatomical shape of the safety belt 1 for women
is provided with an adequately shaped stirip 2 in the form of a flat muff
made of elastic plastic material looking like an elongated S, inside equipped with
also S-shaped whalebone 3, possibly made of polyurethane foam, on one side
to be open and closed by any kind of fastener, e.g. a zipper 4 of a loop-clasp.
This strip 2 is placed on the safety belt of the
car 1, adapting its shape to the required form without deranging its structure,
as shown in Fig.1.
On the inside adjacent to the bust the strip has additional
swellings 5, at least along the upper inside spinning 6 of the strip
2, thanks to which the pressure acting on both sides of the bust is decreased
in the case of sudden braking or collision.
At the upper end of the strip 2 additional pads
14 may be attached in order to neutralize the constant pressure exerted on
the collar-bone or neck.
The strip 2 can be shifted along the safety belt
1 depending on the height of the given person, its position being practically
sable due to its curvature, but can be still more stabilized by means of tensioning
the pull 7 making use of the provided clamp 8, fastened to the external
lower spin of the strip and the abdominal part 9 of the safety belt
1, e.g. by means of a clip 10. as the constitutional proportions of
the human body differ from person to person, there are several hitches
11, and its most expedient to adapt the pull in such a way that it would
run perpendicularly to the tangential line of the lower spin of the strip
In the variant of the strip 2 presented in Fig.6,
on the outer edge just under the edge just under the bust there is a segmental guide
12 with at least one slide and the pull fastened to the abdominal part of
the safety belt.
The segmental guide 12 consists of the several profiled
segments, e.g. beads clamped on the safety belt 1 along its edge, forming
a kind of a zip fastener. The slide 13 has an adequately shaped channel of
the guide 12, and this latter one has on its edges blocking segments.
Another variant on the outer edge of the safety belt just
under the bust there is a guide 12 with at least one slide 13 provided
with a pull 7, which is fastened to the abdominal part of the safety belt,
thanks to which the direction of the safety belt can be arranged under the bust
as shown in Fig.5, without the necessity of applying the strip.
In a still other variant the safety belt has on the outer
edge under the bust a guide 12, and on the inside bottom edge there are slides
13, by means of which the strip 2 can be adjusted on the safety belt
1 and fastened by means of the clap.
