  • Publication number: 20060226686
    Abstract: An energy absorption assembly for a seat assembly having a seatback including a first frame and a second frame includes a housing, a torsion bar rotatably supported by the housing in a first rotational direction and in a second rotational direction, and a clutch assembly engaged with the torsion bar. Engagement between the clutch assembly and the torsion bar permits rotation of the torsion bar relative to the housing in one of the first direction and the second direction to permit movement of the second frame relative to the first frame and restricts rotation of the torsion bar relative to the housing in the other of the first direction and the second direction to restrict movement of the second frame relative to the first frame. Restricting rotation of the torsion bar relative to the housing absorbs energy associated with movement of the second frame relative to the first frame.

  • Publication number: 20060138817
    Abstract: An energy absorption system for a seat assembly includes a first housing plate and a second housing plate defining coaxial elongate apertures having a first end and a second end. A torsion bar is fixed for movement with the seatback and is slidably received within the elongate apertures and a biasing member is supported by one of the housing plates and imparts a biasing force on the torsion bar to bias the torsion bar toward the first ends of the elongate apertures. When a force is applied to the torsion bar, the torsion bar moves toward the second end of the apertures and against the biasing force to absorb energy associated with the force. When the torsion bar reaches the second end of the apertures, the torsion bar may yield to further absorb energy.

  • Publication number: 20050039979
    Abstract: A controlled descent mechanism with a self locking feature. The mechanism includes a belt with an end for attaching to a higher elevation and a free end. The belt is routed between moveable pins within the mechanism and slides across the pins as it moves through the mechanism. The pins can be moved toward one another to induce a dynamic friction within the mechanism to slow the rate of belt movement. The mechanism includes an attachment location for a user harness, and can be used to lower the user while controlling the rate of descent. The mechanism includes a self locking feature to automatically arrest the descent of the user.
