Creating Custom-Fit Car Seats Using Creafoam

Published by Naseem Muaddi on December 19th, 2012

Follow Bald Spot Sports (BSS) as they fabricate a one-off race-car seat shaped specifically for the driver.

Using a product called Creafoam, BSS is able to create single-impact racing seats designed to hold drivers in place during a crash. Because the seat is custom molded to fit perfectly around the driver, movement during an accident is limited relative to the vehicle itself, drastically reducing the risk of injury.

Although BSS uses Creafoam for safety purposes, this video has me wondering about its potential for comfort upgrades to regular passenger vehicles.

If you’re interested in experimenting with Creafoam, purchase a Creafoam Seat Kit from BSS and give it a go. Don’t forget to loop us in on how your project turns out!

    This method has been around for over 10 years Naseem Muaddi

    The F1 boys still use the same method but rather than foam a carbon seat is made from the 3d image.

    the F1 guys also have a kevlar belt system so the driver can be lifted out the car in the seat if it all goes wrong, these kevlar straps are MASSIVELY expensive and weigh next to nothing..a medium size shopping bag filled with reels of kevlar belt would be…£30k plus!
