TOP SOURCE GETS GO AHEAD FOR SAFETY SEAT IN SECOND VEHICLE

 PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., Nov. 16 ~PRNewswire~ -- Top Source, I nc. (AMEX: TPS.EC) was asked by a Detroit automaker to immediately begin developing its ARC (Acceleration Restraint Curve) Seat Safety Motion technology for a second popular passenger vehicle.
 Top Source Chairman Stuart Landow said, "The automaker's decision was based on the impressive injury reduction scores generated during recent crash tests from our first vehicle project. This second vehicle project further supports our confidence that our moving seat technology may become an integral part of the passive restraint system in future vehicles."
 The ARC technology specifies slight, generally forward, seat motion at the moment of frontal crash impact to reduce injury. Used in conjunction with an air bag only, tests have shown head, chest, femur and lower leg injury levels well below those mandated by federal safety standards. When used with a lap belt, ARC dramatically reduces the lap belt force on the abdomen. The ARC seat motion offers significant restraint of the lower torso and minimized occupant impact into the instrument panel. It also prevents submarining under the air bag.
 The ARC technology promises to help automakers meet passive restraint requests in the future, particularly with light trucks, without knee bolsters.
