New Mobile Car Seat App

(From the March 2013 Issue of MedStat)

Car seats save lives and choosing the correct car seat, accompanied by correct installation, are two of the most important things adults can do to keep the children in their lives safe. Thanks to funding from Kohl’s Department Stores through a Kohl’s Cares® safety education grant, Nationwide Children’s is introducing a new mobile web application to assist adults in selecting the right car seat for children and determine when children are ready to use a regular seat belt. The app can be accessed by going to NationwideChildrens.org/KISS and clicking on the new “Car Seat Chooser” app. The app is designed for easy use in English, Spanish, Somali, Russian and Japanese and can be used on computers, phones or any other device that connects to the web.
