Convaid Products, LLC and R82, Inc., together, the Etac Junior Product Group, today announced the launch of their latest child restraint product, the Convaid Carrot 3 Booster Seat, that now accommodates growth into adolescence and adulthood.

The Carrot 3 booster seat can accommodate growth for special needs children and adults ranging from 79 to 165 pounds in weight and 55 to 69” in height.  Growth is accomplished through a system of back inserts and the width-adjustable shoulder protector wings. Optional high density foam inserts allow for optimal positioning and maximum comfort. It provides ergonomic head support for optimal positioning and side impact protection and can recline to a flat position for diaper changes.

The Carrot 3 Booster seat can either be bought as a complete seat, including the back- and head-rest, or as a kit, including the seat and harness, to transform a current Carrot 3 into a booster seat in three easy steps.

The booster seat base with low profile sides makes for easy transfers in and out of the seat, and offers optional accessories like a crash-tested support tray, adjustment wedges, 3D body balance pads and backrest extensions.

The Carrot 3 Booster Seat is now available throughout North America.

“Kids will love the cool colors and the Carrot 3 booster seat ‘big kid’ design and parents will appreciate that it is as safe as their original Carrot 3 car seat that they have come to love. The Carrot 3 booster seat is easy to install and meets the highest industry standards in safety – making it easy and safe to enjoy freedom of mobility and to keep families going places,” said Nanneke Dinklo, Director, Marketing Etac North America and Convaid Global.

The Convaid and R82 product lines offer premium pediatric products typically prescribed for children with one of the following conditions:  Cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, Duchene Muscular Dystrophy, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Spinal Bifida, Osteogenesis Imperfecta, Traumatic Brain Injury, Spinal Cord Injury, Cystic Fibrosis, Mitochondrial Disease, Metabolic Diseases, and Sensory Processing Disorders, among others.
