American engineers have created a special controller for the seat belt, allowing no inconvenience to drive pregnant women.
A device called the Tummy Shield is a conventional seat belt Adjuster, designed for a more comfortable driving during pregnancy. According to the inventors, it redirects part of the belt on its feet “without losing security”, removing the pressure from the stomach and protecting the fetus in the womb.
Tummy Shield, which costs 169 US dollars, is worn on the seat and fastened the buckle. In a seated position, you simply fasten the belt and pull the waist section down.
“The regulator has passed hundreds of laboratory and crash tests and still allows the seat belt to properly protect the passenger during use. It redirects the existing seat belt to protect the abdomen from bumps and prevents slipping of your body below the belt in a collision. Internal stainless steel component designed and manufactured to ensure reliable fixation of the safety belt,” reads the description to the device.
