Every day hundreds of men are injured in car accidents. Some of these injuries could be prevented if they had a seat belt designed for them specifically to fit their bodies better.
Commonly, seat belts do not work properly with men’s bodies. Men need seat belts that are wider and longer than women’s seat belts because they sit further back on the hip bones where two muscles meet; this means that they fit more snugly around the waist of males than females’ seats belts do. This is why some men find it harder to breathe or feel like choking when they use a regular seat belt. Another problem with regular seat belts is shoulder pain. This can be caused by either poor posture or direct pressure from using a standard shoulder strap, which then results in the collar bone being pushed into the chest. This can become painful when driving for long periods of time because it affects blood pressure and breathing. The “airbag” shoulder strap is also uncomfortable, especially in hot weather when an accidental deployment occurs.
The car seat belt needs to be made wider. When car manufacturers make car seats they need to consider both women and men in their design because these products are used by both genders. Car seats should be designed so that people feel comfortable in them. Their safety should not depend on how well they fit behind the wheel, otherwise, this safety feature would discriminate against men or shorter females who do not have enough hip room due to poor design choices. Seat belts are to protect the occupants in a vehicle; if the majority of the population are males, then car seats should at least fit them properly.
A car seat belt that is not adjustable enough can cause pain to the collar bone, chest, and shoulders. There are no differences between men’s bodies and women’s bodies in terms of how long it takes them to wear out a product, so if any design problems do exist, they should be fixed.
The need for better-designed car seats is more important than ever before with advances in technology leading to us using computers on a daily basis. This means that there are more sedentary jobs which leads to obesity, and this may put people at risk behind the wheel because they are not as agile as someone who goes to the gym regularly or has an active lifestyle. Not only do car seats need to fit men’s bodies better, but they should also be made to accommodate the weight of an average male. The car seat belt needs to spread the pressure of a crash throughout the waist area because this is where men are wider than women.
Furthermore, people should not feel like they are choking while using a seat belt; it can be uncomfortable and sometimes painful when people wear them for long periods. When there are better-designed car seats on the market with adjustable shoulder straps, people will be able to use their seat belts properly which will keep them safe in case of an accident while driving or riding in a vehicle.
