Maxi-Cosi have been giants in the child safety world for a long time now. Recently, at the Kind + Jugend trade show in Cologne, they introduced their most innovative safety concept in over 10 years.
What is it? Car seat airbag technology!
Maxi-Cosi have been researching their airbag technology for many years, working in conjunction with airbag specialists from the aviation and motorcycle industries. The car seat brand have now created an airbag system for children traveling in forward facing car seats.
The airbag trigger system is integrated into the back of the child car seat. This system detects a collision almost immediately, inflating the two airbags in the shoulder pads of the car seat within a few milliseconds to cushion the head softly.
Maxi-Cosi's tests have shown that the release of the airbags significantly reduces the forces acting on a child's neck compared to a standard Maxi-Cosi forward facing car seat.
Are you impressed with this latest innovation from Maxi-Cosi?The judges at the Kind + Jugend trade fair were, and awarded the brand one of the most prestigious awards of the show, the innovation award.
