Euro NCAP is simulating rear-end crashes to evaluate the protection that car seats offer against whiplash neck injury. Following a crash, whiplash injuries can be hard to treat and often lead to lifetime discomfort or disability. To address the high number of whiplash injuries across Europe, Euro NCAP began to assess whiplash risk of new car models in 2008. Since then, more than 185 seats have been tested. Euro NCAP recommends consumers to check whiplash scores when considering buying a new car.
