Welcome to the home page of the huggybelt
We are a leading product development company that specialises in car child safety and behind the new innovative child safety seat belt, the HUGGYBELT
The huggybelt is a new, innovative and patented safety belt designed for most Group 2 and 3 car seats including booster seats to keep children safe when in vehicles and can greatly reduce the number of fatalities. The belt not only has a patented ISOFIX connection but provides additional security and ensures that the car seat belt remains on the shoulder at all times and in the correct position.
Motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death for children younger than 13. According to research carried out by the UK Department of Transport in 2013 the total reported child casualties (ages 0-15) was 15,920, with 2,080 those killed or seriously injured. Most car collisions happen when the car is moving forward.
A car seat belt should rest on a child’s shoulder at all times. The seat belt should never be behind the back or tucked in under the arm. The most common reasons for children tucking the seat belt underneath their arm is due to the seat belt cutting into their neck or ear and making it uncomfortable. By doing such an action, the seat belt comes off the shoulder and therefore not being in the correct position.
With the seat belt off the shoulder a child has no or little protection in the event of a car accident. Even in a minor car accident an unrestrained child or child who has their seat belt off their shoulder would be thrown about inside the vehicle, injuring themselves and others. There is also the distinct possibility that a child could suffer the strain placed on the cervical spine, the abdominal area as well as the risk of head injury.
Children aged between 4 to 8 in Group 3 seats are 45 percent less likely to sustain injuries in crashes than kids restrained by belts alone. Children who are using improperly fitted belts are at risk of a host crash injuries known as “seat belt syndrome”. These include spine injuries and internal organ injuries. Boosters help by elevating a child into position and guiding the belts for better protection.
Most accidents happen in short journeys close to home. So How Important is yours Kids Safety, don’t Compromise. Keeping your child safe in the car is paramount. The huggybelt keeps your Kids Safe when on the Move.
The huggybelt’s child-friendly safety design prevents the shoulder part of the seat belt from sliding off or being removed from the child’s shoulder, a habit which children are very guilty of doing due to the seat belt rubbing into their ear and neck. The belt has been crash tested under rigorous EU Car Safety Regulations R44 and successfully passed the regulation tests at the world-renowned Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) in Reading, England and at the crash testing facility of Britax in Andover, Hampshire, England.
The huggybelt has been designed to be utilized in conjunction with standard 3 point car seat belt system. The huggybelt allows the wearer, whether child or adult complete freedom of movement whilst retaining the integrity of the seat belt when kept in the correct shoulder position at all times. Unlike many other products that are on the market, the huggybelt can be used in conjunction with all booster seats and all car seats. When used by children in your car, the huggybelt can protect children from injury and death during a collision or crash.
