A Protective Seat for Children– Experiments with a Safety Seat for Children between One and Six 640855

Small children as automobile occupants need support in normal driving at turning and braking and protection in accidents at collisions and roll-overs. Ordinary restraints, such as the adult seat belt, are less suitable for children between one and six years, mainly because the body proportions are different in children.
A protective seat, adequately rigid and resistant to penetration, with a high, shock-absorbing back rest, can be placed facing rearwards in the front seat of the car. After extensive testing, such a seat is now being manufactured in Sweden.
