A newly filed patent (Publication Number: US20240034211A1) describes a head restraint for a vehicle seat that includes a head support, a head restraint mounting assembly with a first mounting stem for pivotably mounting the head support, and an actuating cable to control the pivoting of the head support around a pivot axis. The actuating cable is fastened to the head support at a vertically offset anchor point and can be partially housed inside the mounting stem. Additionally, the head restraint features a spring member for biasing the head support and a pivot locking mechanism to restrict movement, with a release mechanism provided for unlocking.

Furthermore, the patent details a seat assembly incorporating the described head restraint, where the actuating cable is attached to a second anchor point on the seatback or lower seat portion. This seat assembly allows for adjustable height of the head restraint based on the seatback's pivot angle relative to the lower seat portion. The assembly also includes a pivot control actuator to manage the actuating cable for controlling the head support's pivoting. The patent envisions the application of this innovative head restraint system in vehicles to enhance safety and comfort for passengers.
