The compact knee airbag module uses an airbag that covers the potential knee impact area at the lower part of the instrument panel. This design helps to provide harmonized occupant kinematics and positioning while reducing and/or balancing chest and lower limb loads.
The module features a 2D pillow airbag with internal tethers designed to yield an effective deployment and help reduce tibia loads during a crash. The housing can be configured to suit most vehicle space constraints and assists in protecting the lower leg extremities. See video library.
