The simple seatbelt device that helps improve your driving postureSHOFT is a compact, high-grip product that wraps over the top of your seatbelt tongue. SHOFT acts using friction to reduce the usual ‘slack’ that creeps in to the lap section of your seat belt as we drive along. Thanks to a built-in ‘brake pad’ made of GRIPtene, SHOFT engages the lap section of your seatbelt when you ‘buckle up’ and tug on the diagonal upper section. Keeping tension on the lap portion of the seatbelt helps comply with RoSPA & NHTSA safety guidelines and also helps with better posture as it reduces ‘slouching’ by stopping your hips from slowly sliding forward as you drive, operate the pedals and relax into your journey. This unconscious slouching can seriously affect your posture over time and puts great strain on your lower back muscles often leading to a sore stiff back.
Improves the form and function of your seatbeltSeatbelts are crash tested with all slack removed, but this is not the ‘real world’ situation. In practice, most of us wear our seat belts with slack in them. This reduces the effectiveness and, at the same time, the ability of your seatbelt to protect you in the event of a collision.
Improves posture and prevents slouchingWe all know that we should maintain that healthy S shape in our lower backs by sitting up straight but we all tend to slip down slightly in our seats as we drive. It’s not our fault! Gravity along with the vibration of the car, steering, braking, accelerating, causes our hips to slip forwards and leaves our lower back unsupported by the seat. This slouching usually leads to strain on the lower back muscles and the result is back pain. As we try to compensate we often slump our upper body forward to correct our head position, giving us a bad ‘crab’ posture that often leads to shoulder and neck ache. SHOFT enables your seat belt to assist you with healthier posture every mile of your trip.
Keeps lap belt snuggly in place so it won’t ‘ride up’The lap belt is designed to sit snuggly across the upper thighs/hips because on impact, the pelvis (the strongest bone in our body) can take the immense strain. A loose lap belt tends to ‘ride up’ from the pelvis (where it should be) and ends up across the stomach. The soft organs and tissues of your abdomen aren’t able to cope with that kind of impact and this can lead to internal bruising at low speeds and at higher impact speeds can result in internal organ damage. The driver/passengers can even ‘submarine’ under the seatbelt at high impact speeds. Some pregnant women don’t wear their seatbelt because of the lap belt riding up over the bump. SHOFT helps to keep the lap belt where it was designed to function optimally, tensioned across the pelvis.
Helps stops the spread of germsSHOFT has Biomaster built into each one, which is proven to protect against the spread of 99.9% of germs including antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE).
