Low-cost child restraint project included in WHO publication

August 8, 2011

The M-SEAT low-cost child restraint project being led by UMTRI students Megan Bland and Rachael Strauss has been selected for inclusion in the Compendium of New and Emerging Health Technologies produced by the World Health Organization (WHO).

According to the WHO website, the compendium of new and emerging technologies that address global health concerns has been created as a neutral platform for technologies that are likely to be suitable for use in low-resource settings. The compendium is a first snapshot of several health technologies that have the potential to improve health outcomes or to offer a solution to an unmet medical need in low-resource settings.

To download a one-page project fact sheet titled "Low-technology child restraint car seat" go to New and emerging technologies.
