Designed to help protect the unborn baby and mother-to-be whilst travelling by car.
A normal vehicle lap belt can exert extreme pressure on the womb in the event of an accident or even during heavy breaking. In a low speed accident, a person can be projected forward with a force of 5 tons. Furthermore, many mothers-to-be, during the later stages of pregnancy have been known to stop wearing their seat belt because it gets too uncomfortable - this is extremely dangerous and illegal!
When correctly fitted, the bump belt ensures that the lap portion of the seat belt does not ride up over the tummy, keeping the lap belt low over the hips and pelvis which are better able to absorb any impact
Ensures that wearing a vehicle seat belt throughout pregnancy is comfortable
