Toronto, Ontario – A new child seat from Dorel Distribution Canada offers protection for children during side-impact collisions by putting a layer of air protection around the head.

The Complete Air Convertible Car Seat with Air Protect technology is now available in Canada exclusively in Babies R Us, at Toys R Us stores.

According to a recent survey, 96 per cent of Canadian parents said side impact protection is an important feature, but it has not been previously available. Side impact collisions account for 30 per cent of all passenger fatalities, killing over 100 children annually.  In a side impact collision, head injuries are the most common among all injuries in children.

Air Protect extends “ride-down,” the amount of time it takes to slow a child’s movement in a crash, creating a slower and softer landing.

The Complete Air Convertible Seat comes in rear-facing for children five to 40 lbs, or 19 to 36 inches, and in toddler’s forward-facing, from 22 to 50 lb, and from 29 to 45 inches. The harness accommodates children up to 50 lbs.  A One Click UAS installation system allows for faster and easier installation when moving between vehicles.
