Child restraints for children with additional needs.

Lindner, H

Restraints

ACRS conference 2011

Children with additional needs often require special consideration when being restrained in motor vehicles. AS/NZS 4370:1996 Restraint of children with disabilities in motor vehicles provides guidelines for the prescriber in recommending child restraints for children with additional needs.

VicRoads, on behalf of the Department of Human Services, undertook a review to address concerns about the compatibility of the restraints with motor vehicles in Australia; and compliance of the restraints with the intent of the AS/NZS 1754 Child restraint systems for use in motor vehicles.
