Is your child often restless in the car? Or maybe they cross their legs in the car seat or put them on the driver’s or passenger’s seat? If so, this could be caused by a feeling of numbness and tingling in the lower limbs. How can these problems be eliminated? We will discuss this further in the article.
Child’s body position while driving
Every parent knows that an approved child car seat increases safety during car travel – regardless of the length of the journey. A properly adjusted car seat protects the child’s head and body during sudden braking or collisions. However, for this to happen, the child should sit in it in the proper body position – upright, with the legs hanging down.
Unfortunately, even after a short car ride in this position, children often start to feel discomfort. While maintaining the correct body position, they suffer from loosely dangling legs that cannot reach the floor. This overloads the muscles and joints, disrupting blood and lymph circulation. Toddlers then instinctively try to change their body position so that the discomforting feeling disappears. This, in turn, means that they do not maintain the safe position that is so important in unexpected situations on the road. What can be done to avoid such problems?
KneeGuardKids car seat footrest – when legs go numb
For children who experience numbness and tingling in their lower limbs when sitting in forward-facing car seats, the KneeGuardKids car footrest is a lifesaver. It provides stable leg support for toddlers aged from around 2 to 9 years. In addition, the height and angle adjustment of the platform makes it easy to adapt the footrest to the height and needs of the child and, most importantly, prevent leg numbness.
