On long car trips, walks with stroller and hikes, not only adults can suffer from lower back pain at some point; children’s backs also suffer. Many of the commercially available seats, strollers and back packs are uncomfortable and static. Back pain is a common consequence
Therefore: These categories of juvenile products must not only meet all safety requirements, but also the ergonomic needs of the next generation.
The sophisticated ergonomic design of the Kiddy products, with their ability to grow with your child for a perfect fit, and the comfortable handling and lightweight design are important aid factors in the prevention and avoidance of back problems for parents and children alike.
The interdisciplinary examination board of the Federal Association of German Back Schools and of the "Forum Gesunder Rücken - besser leben e.V." (Association Forum Healthy Back - better living) identified amongst others the following characteristics as important for an ergonomically friendly product:
The product has to be robust and must be adjustable to the individual requirements of the child. That mainly requires variable back, head and shoulder rests, side impact protection of the pelvic area, sufficient elbowroom and an extendable leg support (if possible).
The construction of backrest and seating area should allow a circulation of air. That prevents aggravating perspiration.
In a car seat for age group I an impact shield is recommended.
Assembling and handling should be easy and comfortable for adults.
A child safety car seat certified by the “Aktion Gesunder Rücken e.V.” (Campaign for Healthier Backs ) is currently only available from Kiddy. The AGR seal of approval exclusively awards products that had their back-friendly construction tested by an independent review panel of medical and scientific experts.
Look out for the AGR seal of approval!
