head size in relation to body
A baby's head is equal to a quarter of its overall body weight, but the neck, muscles and spine are still not developed. So impact can cause the weight of the head to be thrown towards the windscreen in a forward facing seat. But choosing a seat that faces backwards till they're 4 years of age pushes the head back into the padding, ensuring they're a whole lot safer while they are at their most vulnerable.
Protection on all sides.
Side impact crashes account for
of all incidents. They often result in far higher
fatalities and head injuries.
Despite accounting for just 27% of all incidents, side impact crashes result in far higher fatalities and head injuries. That's why we believe strongly in the importance of side impact protection, and why every one of our car seats offers this level of safety.
Many of our models even come with superior side impact protection to offer even greater impact absorption in the case of an accident.
