RiDC, The Research Institute for Disabled Consumers, and the charity Driving Mobility have collaborated to launch an awareness campaign focusing on specialist car seats for disabled children.
RiDC has over 50 years’ experience of user-centred research involving disabled and older consumers. In response to a growing demand from families and carers with disabled children, RiDC have introduced qualified and unique information about specialist car seats and harnesses.
Driving Mobility oversees a network of 20 independent organisations, many with satellite centres, which offer professional information, advice and driving assessments for people seeking assistance with mobility. This charity will be supporting RiDC to raise awareness of its independent car seat research and advising its driving assessment centres to provide this vital information to service users.
The campaign aims to ensure that children who require additional postural assistance whilst travelling in a car, can benefit from greater safety and comfort. Signposting towards specialist suppliers, such as JCM Seating, R82 and Recaro, is being provided along with key features and estimated prices.
