There’s a new car seat hitting the market that parents are sure to want to check out. It’s made by Britax Child Safety Inc. and has what the engineers call “Revolutionary Head Safety Technology”, offering 360 degree protection.
It’s a redesign which reduces the risk of head injury in an accident and goes well beyond what the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration requires of car seat manufacturers.
These are some of the features of the seats, making this possible:
* A re-engineered lower center of gravity that creates stability in the event of a crash.
* Integrated steel bars that strengthen the connection to the vehicle and reduce forward flexing of the child seat during a crash.
* Patent-pending Britax “SafeCell” Technology with SafeCells that are designed to compress in a crash. This significantly lowers the center of gravity and counteracts the forward rotation of the child seat, which normally propels the child toward the front seat.
* Energy-Absorbing Versa-Tether® anchors the top of the car seat, minimizing forward-rotation and reducing crash forces reaching the child.
The video above best explains the technology. Expect to see the seats on store shelves soon if they are not already available near you.
