Innovation Week: CARES Aviation Harness
Forget about schlepping through the airport with a carseat for your older baby or toddler.
One ingenious grandma invented CARES, or the Child Aviation Restraint System. It’s FAA certified as having an equivalent level of safety to a car seat for all phases of flight and is manufactured by AmSafe, the foremost manufacturer of airplane seatbelts and other safety restraints.
Best of all, CARES weighs only 1 lb, fits in a 6″ carrying case, fits all airplane seats and takes a mere 1 minute to install. The harness-style child safety device is for kids 22-44lbs.
After highlighting innovations not yet available in the marketplace, CARES has been around for a couple of years (you can find online reviews) and is available at Kids Fly Safe.
