ARSC conference 2018

The use of a child restraint fitting stations has been shown to increase the odds of correct use of child restraints, but their use is not universal. This study aimed to characterize the differences between parents who use child restraint fitting services and those who do not, using an online survey of 470 child restraint users. Of survey respondents, approximately a third had used a fitting station. Fitting stations users had higher levels of education, tended to be more likely to think installation was difficult, and to have purchased their restraint from a specialist baby store.
