Abstract

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Minnesota Health Solutions (MHS) proposes to develop an advanced instrumented child safety seat. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for American children. Child safety seats are the most effective way to prevent death and serious injury to children in crashes, and yet these critically important tools are misused in up to 90% of installations. The proposed instrumented child safety seat will measure, record, and display three critical aspects of proper seat use. The efficacy of the proposed instrumented child safety seat to improve proper seat installation rates will be evaluated in a human study during phase II.
