Rear-facing car seats

Does my child have enough space for his/her feet?

Although there is less space for the feet in a so-called reboarder, experts still recommend a rear-facing car seat for children up to the age of 6 or 7. But what exactly does this have to do with?

The relationship between the head and body is different in small children than in adults. In addition, the neck muscles are still developing. This poses particular risks in the event of a rear-end collision. Again and again, small children suffer serious injuries, including paraplegia, because their neck cannot support the weight of their head.

The injury rate for children sitting in reboarders is considerably lower. They travel up to 5 times safer here. Children with disabilities in particular should therefore remain in the reboarder for as long as possible.

Of course, it is important that the rear-facing child car seat is tailored to the size, weight and special needs of the child. Then there is definitely enough space for the feet.
