AT THE DALLAS JUVENILE PRODUCTS TRADESHOW, XPORTATION SAFETY CONCEPTS INC. (XSCI) TO UNVEIL THE PIONEERED II AIRBAG-COMPATIBLE INFANT SEAT
Safety Seat Tested
Compliant With Pending 2004 Government Safety Standards, With or Without an
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO - April 29, 2003 /PRnetwire/ -- Colorado-based Xportation
Safety Concepts Inc. has announced it will unveil its new Pioneered(tm) II
Airbag-Compatible Infant Seat at the annual Juvenile Products Trade Show to be
held May 2-4, 2003 in Dallas, Texas.
"The Pioneered(tm) II seat offers a safer traveling environment for infants than
any other known child protection seat," says Dan Goor, XSCi's Vice-President of
Technology. It allows parents and caretakers to securely put an infant in the
front seat of an automobile or truck equipped with an airbag.
Established in 1993, Xportation Safety Concepts Inc. was set up to evaluate and
market transportation safety products that were developed by technology
innovator GA International of Colorado. The Pioneered II Infant Safety Seat will
be introduced to the marketplace after ten years of development.
The Pioneered Safety Seat redirects crash energy through a Deflector Base and
away from a baby within the inner cradle. The inner cradle is isolated further
by being secured into a shock-mounted holder.
The carrier cradle moves independently from the protective shield of the
deflector base and is designed with an energy helmet-like deflector shield to
further protect a baby. Therefore, momentum from a sudden stop or a crash is
transferred to the automobile seat and away from the infant. It is designed to
protect the baby by isolating it from the impact points experienced by
conventional car seats.
The patented Pioneered II Airbag-Compatible Infant Seat, with or without an
airbag, uniquely meets the pending government safety standard FMVSS-213 for
2004. It was successfully tested to meet this standard while interacting with an
airbag, and also while interacting with a solid barrier representing a dash with
no airbag; or, when placed in the back seat, simulating interacting with a
console, or the rear of a front seat.
Importantly, the Pioneered II Airbag-Compatible Infant Seat also helps eliminate
distractions from rear-facing infants in the back seat. Based on a number of
studies, and a growing body of evidence, back seat distractions from rear-facing
infants are the cause of more crashes than are rear-facing infants sitting on
the front seat. More info: http://www.safeinfant.com
