Pediatric restraint seat systems are designed for the emergency transport of a child in an ambulance or other emergency vehicle. In some states, they are required by law, but even if they aren’t legally mandated, it’s always a good idea to include at least one of these in your inventory of essential ambulance safety equipment.
Pediatric restraints both stabilize and save lives
A pediatric restraint system is designed to keep an injured child immobilized during transport. It helps to minimize any further injury that could happen as a result of the child moving about or destabilizing inside the emergency vehicle, and can be very helpful in certain extenuating circumstances, such as if the child has challenging behaviors, is disabled in any way, has a broken bone, a tracheotomy, or particular muscle abnormalities that limit their range of motion or ability to sit on their own.
Using pediatric restraints, the child can be safely strapped and secured onto a gurney or into an attendant seat, allowing them to receive emergency treatment in the vehicle and keep them snug and secure as they are being transported.
The pediatric restraint system also provides crash protection, and can help to safely secure the child as their injured parent is transported to the hospital. The pediatric restraint can secure a small child in a car seat that is strapped into the base of an ambulance attendant seat and can be easily adjusted to accommodate an infant.
