Small children as automobile occupants need support in normal driving at turning and braking and protection in accidents at collisions and roll-overs. Ordinary restraints, such as the adult seat belt, are less suitable for children between one and six years, mainly because the body proportions are different in children.
A protective seat, adequately rigid and resistant to penetration, with a high, shock-absorbing back rest, can be placed facing rearwards in the front seat of the car. After extensive testing, such a seat is now being manufactured in Sweden.
