You are flying abroad : your Luftikid will be installed in the taxi on the way to the airport; your child will carry it in the bag to the airplane where it will be inflated again, and so on. Luftikid is the only children’ seat approved for both car and airplane use. When travelling abroad with a hired car, no traditional safety chair will have to be rented (Luftikid purchasing’ cost is equivalent to 4 to 12 days traditional chair’ rental).
You only occasionally carry children and, therefore, you do not necessarily have a traditional -voluminous and heavy to manipulate- safety chair available. No problem: you inflate your Luftikid: it is easy for you and safe for them.
For the shared economy fans
Sharing cars is becoming more and more popular: in case of car-sharing, car-pooling, or even «car-squatting», take your Luftikid with you and you will not bother others. Your child will only use a minimum of space: up to three Luftikid can be installed on the rear seats. It is not possible with traditional safety chairs.
Why purchasing for your personal usage only ? Robust, easy to clean, Luftikid can be shared with the family, the neighbors, friends, Airbnb, etc..
Children living in different locations will carry the small bag with them; the respective cars seats or trunks will not be permanently occupied with traditional safety seats.
Taxi, limousine, minibus drivers: deflated and folded in its bag, Luftikid is permanently available in the vehicle: small in size and light, it is stored together with its pump.
When a 1 to 7 years old child comes aboard, Luftikid is inflated within less than a minute using the dedicated supplied pump, and the child can be safely installed on a rear seat. Afterwards, thanks to the new double valve system, deflating will be quasi instantaneous and the equipment will be stored in its bag.
Occasional children drivers: UBER and LYFT become more and more popular. Luftikid will help them considering and taking care of the children safety offering them an air cushion (airbag kind) protection.
Rent a Car companies as well as car sharing and pool sharing(such as driving children to schools). A Luftikid stored in the trunk will be easily and quickly installed and removed.
Crash tests have demonstrated Luftikid’ high efficiency for 1 to 7 years old children in case of front collision, safer than traditionnal chairs.
In fact traditionnal safety chairs operate by blocking the child with a harness or with a three points safety belt, but they don’t take into account the impact on the upper cervical spines or the neck (high risk of breaking it).
With Luftikid the impact is absorbed propotionnally by the upper part of the body , avoiding to a great extent the risks of neck damage.
Crash tests were performed in specialized laboratories.
Simulations in real conditions were performed in buses.
Luftikid was not designed as a standard inflatable buoy equipment; high level materials and manufacturing processes were selected per the specifications, for obtaining the label:
- High resistance materials: it is made of polyurethane injected nylon, is fire-proof (an additional protection in case of accident), and made per the military and aeronautical norms.
- Watertight due to the very high frequency welding process (2 years warranty)
- Manufacturing processesapproved and controlled by a specialized laboratory
- Luftikid is certified per the European norm ECE 44/04; transposition to USA norms pending.
- Luftikid passed successfully the automotive and aviation crash tests
- Luftikid is delivered in a protective bageasy for transportation also containing the two-stroke pump for a quick inflation.
All of this, and the fact it is being produced in small quantities, explains a relatively high selling price: 149 € ex-works and before tax.
