A safety seat for use in a motor vehicle has a squab (

101

) and a back (

104

) and a head-rest (

105

). There is a pivotal connection between the back (

104

) and the squab (

101

). The head-rest (

105

) is mounted on a series of levers (

112

). If the vehicle is involved in a rear impact, the back (

104

) of the seat may move rearwardly. Simultaneously, because of the levers (

112

) the head-rest (

105

) will move forwardly relative to the back of the seat. Thus, the head-rest will come into contact with the head of the occupant of the seat, thus minimizing the risk of “whiplash” injuries.
