If you've not heard of it before, then TRL stands for Transport Research Laboratory, and we're here today with Maxi-Cosi to find all about their brand new car seat, the AxissFix Air. Now this is a car seat with a difference, as it features ground breaking technology that we've never seen before - built in airbags! This technology is a world first for the child car seat industry, and we are so excited to be here to find out the full details.
Our priority as parents is to keep our children safe in all situations, which is what Maxi-Cosi are constantly striving for with their car seats. The Air Safety technology® and built-in airbags make it up to 55% safer than any other forward-facing car seat! The technology in the seat automatically detects a collision and sets off the airbags within 0.05 seconds, to protect your child from the impact.
As well as getting hands on with the AxissFix Air, the test track here at TRL has been used to demonstrate to us exactly how this innovative car seat performs in a collision, and what the airbags do to cushion the child and protect their head and neck. Have a look at this video which shows you exactly how it works.
During the day we're also having a full question and answer session with the experts - the team from Maxi-Cosi and TRL, so keep an eye out on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages, as well as the Pushchair Expert website.
