Guardian Safety Seat

The Guardian Safety Seat was designed to solve the problem of safely restraining children and infants who must accompany a parent or caregiver in an ambulance. Current devices in use in ambulances are cumbersome to stow, hard to install and time consuming to use, especially in emergency situations. The design of the Guardian Safety Seat will not allow for incorrect installation; the carrier is already attached to the main seat frame and simply lifts and locks into the recommended 45-degree angle in seconds. It can accommodate both infants (5-22 lbs.) and children (23-85 lbs.).
