  • Publication number: 20180319298
    Abstract: A seating assembly includes a seatback having a seatback cushion. A carrier supports the seatback cushion. An upper thoracic region includes a first side support defining a first receiving aperture and a second side support defining a second receiving aperture. A lower lumber region includes an actuatable lumbar support configured to move between deployed and non-deployed conditions. An air mover is disposed between the first and second side supports. The air mover is suspended between the first and second side supports by a flexible band that extends laterally between the first and second side supports and is removably coupled with the first and second receiving apertures.

  • Patent number: 5947514
    Abstract: An adaptively controlled safety restraint system (20) is disclosed which includes a safety restraint device (22, 24) operative in response to a flow of pressurized gas, and fluid means (28) having a stored energy device (30) which can be activated to produce pressurized gas which is discharged through a conduit network (34, 36) for driving the safety restraint device (22, 24). The system further includes a throttling valve assembly (32, 58) disposed between the fluid means (28) and the safety restraint device (22, 24) for controllably varying the output of the fluid means (28). The throttling valve assembly (32, 58) is controlled by an electrical signal received from a crash management controller (38).

  • Patent number: 5853192
    Abstract: A system (20) for controlling the effective rate at which an air bag (24) is filled comprising: a housing (22) operatively communicated with the air bag such that as the air bag is pressurized by inflation gas such gas enters the housing increasing its internal pressure, the housing (22) including: variable vent (54, 50, 52) for defining an opening through which a quantity of inflation gas is controllably diverted from the air bag to thereby reduce its rate of inflation from that rate which is achieved when the vent means is closed.
