Title: Foot isolation platform

Abstract: A foot isolation platform for a vehicle includes a base for connection with the vehicle floor to be movable with the vehicle floor; a foot support movable relative to the base and having an upper surface for supporting the feet of the vehicle occupant above the base; and an isolation member connected in a force-transmitting relationship between the base and the foot support. The isolation member supports the foot support in an extended position above the base. The isolation member acts to isolate the foot support from the vehicle floor in the event of rapid upward movement of the vehicle floor thereby to help protect the lower extremities of the vehicle occupant.
