We lose body tension when we sleep. Thus, the entire upper body of sleeping passengers in car seats becomes limp and tips forwards: the head falls forwards significantly and swings out of the protection zone of the car seat. This is a very dangerous state because when the body is no longer within the safety area, the side collision protection of the seat loses its full effectiveness. In addition to this the child is in considerably more danger due to the forwards positioning and the child will hit the backrest of the front seat more directly in a head on collision. In the worst case scenario, strong braking manoeuvres can lead to damage to the cervical spine (whiplash).
SleepFIX offers parents the simple yet effective option of equipping car seats with additional protection. SleepFIX holds the head stable and the upper body upright – the child also remains within the safety area of the car seat when sleeping. For passengers who only need a booster seat, it also prevents the safety belt from pressing against the neck and restricting air supply. SleepFIX from Osann perfectly complements side airbags since it ultimately protects children from accidentally entering the exit area of the airbag. Be mobile and be safe
There are different sizes of SleepFIX pillows for any age. This is why parents who like to travel with their children appreciate the comfort cushioning as a safe and practical travel tool – the pillows help satisfy vital mobility needs. Depending on the design, the pillows are:
* Accessory belt required due to special seat design
- ideal for child car seats, bicycle seats, bicycle trailers, baby backpacks, strollers, wheelchairs, trains and aeroplanes*
- practical for car seat boosters, integrated car seats and all seats in cars, coaches, campers, lorries, trains and aeroplanes*
If the child falls asleep during a journey, SleepFIX by Osann can be positioned "after the fact” – without waking the child. For this reason SleepFIX always provides a relaxed and safe sleeping position in many different types of seating arrangements.
