History and Evolution of Safety Seats

Baby car seats, an essential part of traveling safety, have a history of over a century. From a simple safety device gradually evolved into a complex children's travel safety system.

The changes in the car seat mirror advancements in automotive engineering and safety standards. This article illustrates the history of baby car seats and how safety seats protect children during travel.

The Evolution of Child Car Seat

Before child safety seats were invented, children were seated in cars just like adults. However, at that time, people were not aware that airbags and seat belts in cars could also pose significant risks to children.

Because children have delicate bones, during a collision when the car rapidly decelerates, their bodies can be propelled forward due to immense inertia. At this moment, the adult seat belt crossing their body may cause dangers such as chest rib fractures, suffocation, or even neck bone fractures for children.

In the 1960s, Europeans invented a car device specifically designed for the safety of children during travel: the child safety seat.

The first safety seat was manufactured by Volvo, who drew inspiration from the principles of astronaut seats in spacecraft. These seats are designed to reduce and cushion the inertia during ascent and descent in spacecraft. Building upon this principle, Volvo proposed the idea of rear-facing installation for child safety seats.
