Help requested posted on 7th December 2012:
I have been looking through a road safety leaflet for older drivers, and it mentions there are a number of adaptations older drivers can use to increase their safety, and it mentions “donor bags in the torso portion of the seat back”. What is a “donor bag”?

Never heard of them before but found this -
"Donor bags in the torso portion of the seat back that use the rearward motion of the torso to compress and transmit gas into a recipient bag in the head restraint"
Sounds like a pair of connected bags that move air (or other gas) around to provide additional support in the headrest. Information gathered from here - http://www.m-castl.org/promising-approaches/index.php?p=4
