World’s First Child Car Seat With Built-in Airbags Goes On Sale Worldwide by obafemee80(m): 2:24pm On Oct 17




The world's first child car seat with built-in airbags has being launched worldwide today,the 17th,Oct.It can detects a collision in less than a blink of an eye,protecting toddlers in the same way as adults.

Bags in the shoulder pads of the harness instantly inflate,then automatically deflate one second after impact.

The seat which can be used facing forward or backward also works in the front passenger seat, according to the manufacturer.

The £550($730)device more than halves jerking forces on the neck and head compared to other forward-facing car seats.

In a frontal collision children in forward-facing seats are at risk of severe spinal and neck injuries or traumatic 'chin-to-chest' strikes.

HOW IT WORKS

In a frontal collision, children in forward-facing seats are at risk of severe spinal and neck injuries or traumatic 'chin-to-chest' strikes.

Maxi Cosi's new 'Air Technology' uses an accelerator sensor and trigger installed in the back of the seat to set off a CO2 air cartridge.

This inflates a pair of small airbags around the child's shoulders and chest.

The system detects a collision in 0.05 seconds,inflating the two airbags in the shoulder pads 'within the blink of an eye' to cushion the head softly.

In tests the seat reduced the forces acting on the neck vertebrae and the head in the case of a frontal collision by up to 55 per cent.





Maxi-Cosi's new 'Air Technology' seat uses an acceleration sensor and trigger installed in the back that sets off a CO2 air cartridge, inflating a pair of small airbags around the child's shoulder and chest area.It is suitable for children from four months to four years.

Last year, 69 children were killed in road accidents in Britain,with a further 156 seriously injured.

Andrew Ratcliffe, managing director of Maxi-Cosi, said:
Cars are not designed to protect our children best. "That's why we keep innovating to ensure that children are transported by car as safely as possible.

He said: "Successful applications in airbag technology gave us inspiration, such as the airbag jackets for motorcyclists and airbag seatbelts in aircraft that inflate during a collision."

To develop a new standard, Maxi-Cosi teamed up with Helite,a French company specialising in mobile airbag technology.After many years of development and testing, a ground-breaking technology for the next generation of forward-facing car seats is the outcome.

The first child car seat that will include the airbag is the AxissFix Air and will be available in selected stores worldwide,from today,Tuesday October 17.

It features a 360-degree swivel which can be used for both rear and forward-facing travel and is suitable for children whose height is between 61cm and 105cm (2ft and 3ft 5in)

The world is turning to "The Adventures or Pluto Nash Movie" click like if you have watched the movie. Where Eddie Murphy was seen in a vessel trying to tone his body and instead of picking up dumbbell or barbell,he only pressed some buttons in the vessel and it brought out options on the type of body he wants.
Science fictions are turning to reality gradually,Amphibian cars and cars that drive underwater are now at our disposal,flying cars too,Holography will soon replace our conventional screens where you will watch 3 dimensional movies like you are watching stage performance or watching it live. watching on screens will be replaced by holography and professor Stephen Hawking was watched live on stage sometimes about 3 years ago where he made some jokes about Zayn Malik,he wasn't actually on the stage,he was in his office talking but people thought it was his real self meanwhile it was his holographic image. Whites are doing great to make the world a better place. many scientists are in CERN making use of their valuable times
Meanwhile,here in Nigeria,all you here people form is 30billion gang like he will give you one naira,Wizkid vs Davido blah blah,Nigerian youths waste their time away idolizing mediocre,barbaric and local musicians that have nothing to offer than to promote acquisition of wealth by all means,nudity, sex,drugs and immorality. they are ruining your lives and wasting your time away why you keep thinking they are your relatives. These musicians are nobodies in foreign countries,nobody knows them or give a damn who they are,instead the so called musicians switch on their humility mode cos they are not reckoned with but they turn to gods in Nigeria cos they know there are useless youths that are always there for them.
its high time our youths stop disgracing us,develop your nation in your own way,don't be consumers,Nigeria is only a little spot on the entire world map,the world is bigger than you think,nobody outside Africa sees these people that are wasting your life away. Nigerians only know how to dance stupidly,show stupidity,spend money on stage,argue on useless things,etc. New razz dance steps made up by Nigerian mainstream musicians is only disgrace to the country and not achievement,if Chris Brown or Drake mimics your favorite artists' dance step,they are only mocking you all and don't be proud of mediocrity and mockery. Our youths should try and be useful and add make us proud by inventing and innovating and not dancing around like epileptic fools.

Great innovations. But what about the child's legs? You can't tell me they only want to save life but don't care is the child's legs end up being crushed - rendering the child a crippled from birth.

at £550 its not bad, if the benefits mean that in the event of a crash your child has more chances of coming out unhurt.
some car sits without the airbags already cost that much or more so why not buy this one with the added benefit.

Was it after a crash? Were you on seatbelt?

Hope it didn't cause you any permanent injury.

i beg to disagree with this please(with proof). i bought my baby's car seat over one year now, and it came with an inbuilt airbag inside. i was even tempted not to buy it cos i didnt want any airbag stuff on a child's car seat. imagine it deploying when the child is sleeping peacefully in it. my point is, these airbag seats have been on sale many years now. thanks
