When is the KneeGuardKids 3 Footrest Needed?

Your child sits securely in the car seat.
However, after a while, he or she begins to feel a strong pressure under the knees and calves. Numbness under the influence of gravity causes unpleasant, painful sensations in a child.
 
The stress associated with the perceived discomfort increases and then the child tries to remedy it subconsciously by adopting positions that can be dangerous in a situation of sudden braking or a collision.

Uncomfortably dangling legs

This position is extremely bad for your child's health.

The constant pressure on the limbs, caused by self-weight and gravity, causes problems with blood circulation, numbness and pain in the legs. Children often kick into the back of the front seat to reduce muscle tension.

KneeGuardKids - Car seat footrest

Comfortably supported legs

The KneeGuardKids 3 footrest is the perfect complement to a car seat that can be individually adjusted to the length of the child's legs.

The footrest optimally supports the legs of children from 2 years old up to 9 years old - it grows with them. Having a stable point of support under the feet, the child decides when to change the angle of the legs.

1

UP TO 3 YEARS OLD

In small children sitting in the car seat, the dangling feet are placed at an angle of approx. 40 degrees to the plane of the vehicle floor.

Lack of proper support causes the ankle joint and the muscles of the shins to be constantly overloaded. It is recommended to use the footrest angle switch so that the feet are fully supported and rested.
2

FROM 4 YEARS OLD

In older children sitting in the car seat, the dangling feet are usually level with the floor of the vehicle and this is where the support of the feet will be most comfortable for them.

The ankle and knee joints as well as the lower leg muscles will rest while driving. As the child grows, gradually lower the position of the platform, adjusting it to the length of the child's legs.

FOR EVERY CAR

The footrest can be firmly attached between the car seat and the seat of a vehicle equipped with the ISOFIX system, as well as without it.

KneeGuardKids can be installed in any car, as long as the space behind the front seat is at least 22 cm. The footrest cannot be used with car seats or bases with a support leg.

How to fix the footrest in the car?

Footrest can be attached both to vehicles with and without the ISOFIX system.
