Car seat confusion? There’s an app for that

Forward-facing, rear-facing, seat-belt placing…car seat safety can get very confusing. And the statistics back that up.

According to the  American Automobile Association (AAA),  four out of five car seats are used incorrectly. Read more on the five tragic mistakes parents and caregivers make when using vehicle safety seats.

Choosing and using the right car seat drastically reduces a child’s risk of injury or death. So the Injury Prevention team at Phoenix Children’s Hospital developed an app they hope will simplify the process.

The Car Seat Helper lets parents, healthcare professionals and caregivers know what to look for in a car seat or booster seat.  It also provides links  to local resources that can help with proper installation of a seat. Videos and car seat facts are included, too.
