Numerous tests by leading international motoring or consumer organizations have demonstrated that the safest forms of transport are rear-facing seats followed by safety cushion systems.
Car seats with safety cushion have regularly received top results in the test of leading independent European consumer organisations like Germany's "Stiftung Warentest", British "Which Magazine", the French "que choisir", the number one European motoring organisation, the German "ADAC" and the Dutch "ANWB".
When comparing the Stiftung Warentest test results from 2007 to 2012, the top 3 seats in Group 1 (approx. 9 months - 4 years) are seats with safety cushion. In the combination Group 1/2/3 (approx. 9 months - 12 years) the superiority of safety cushion systems is even more striking: 9 seats in the top 10 are seats with safety cushion technology.
Last year Stiftung Warentest and ADAC for the first time ever awarded the top mark "very good" in Group 1 in the category "accident safety" - to the Group 1 test winner CYBEX Juno-fix, a seat with safety cushion. (Stiftung Warentest of test 6/2012)
When looking at conventional seats with harness system there are reports, statistics and studies about heavy or fatal injuries, especially in the critical head and neck area. As a head-on collision is often linked to high speeds, the child is exposed to enormous forces. Our belief here is that the CYBEX safety cushion has tremendous advantages over a harness system. In a simulated head-on collision, car seats with traditional harness system show significantly higher force on the critical neck compared to systems with safety cushion.
Leading Independent institutions continue to award CYBEX and other safety pillow technology manufacturers some of the highest safety accreditations in the industry.
