Ontario Residents Develop Innovative Child Passenger Safety Seat

Patented seat is installed in demo SUV; GoFundMe campaign started for national safety campaign travels.

ONTARIO, CA – Feb. 26, 2018 – Lenard and Barb Ascher, longtime residents of Ontario, California, have made big strides in the world of child passenger safety technology. The past five years have been dedicated to developing their patented adjustable seat concept that aims to save the lives of children. The statistics are staggering – 1 in 3 child seats are not installed correctly. Over 75% of child passenger injuries are preventable.

The Aschers, who are semi-retired and help raise four grandchildren, have dedicated their efforts to seeing this child saving technology become a reality. Lenard Ascher is also a nationally certified Child Passenger Safety Technician. The seat technology is currently designed to be made available through new vehicles. The seat has multiple moving and adjustable parts so that children will no longer need a car seat once they outgrow the infant carrier. Equipped with smart technology software, the seat moves itself into position to assist adults in properly securing children for transport.

The latest demo version of this seat is installed in the Ascher’s late model Ford Explorer. Their goal is to travel to two very important national safety conferences taking place this year. The Lifesavers National Conference on Highway Safety in San Antonio, Texas in late April and the Kidz in Motion Conference in Broomfield, Colorado in late August.  Through their five-year investment into this concept, a GoFundMe Campaign has recently been created in hopes of gaining support for their travels to both conferences. This opportunity will allow the Aschers to provide in-person demonstrations of the adjustable seat technology to prominent safety executives and advocates in the industry.

New Video Demonstrates Adjustable Seat Technology

Simply, there was no better way to demonstrate the need for an adjustable seat concept like ours than to install a real-life prototype into a vehicle. Over the course of a year, we diligently created this fully functioning seat to be installed in a Ford Explorer. Taking concept to reality, seeing is believing.

We were able to remove just one seat and replace it with our technology-equipped seat without impeding on the space of adjacent seats. This is an important facet of this seat. With designing to fit in standard OEM seat widths, we can show the possibility of placing more than one seat side-by-side. Additionally, we wanted to match the OEM interior to show a factory look with amazing capabilities.

How did we program the seat to move? For the demonstration seat, we have connected to it, an independent touch screen with software that requests the height and weight input for the child. After the input is entered, the seat will automatically adjust itself to the optimal configuration. For new vehicle integration, this user interface and software would be installed in the vehicle’s infotainment system, allowing easy access by the driver or front passenger.

While we put the focus on child passenger, we also want to touch on this seat’s capability for special needs children and adults. For all circumstances where the traditional seat belt system needs more features, our seat technology provides this and more. We hope you’ll take the time to watch our new video and to see this seat in action.

Through keeping a conversation open with safety advocates, first responders, and parents – we hope that this sparks questions and curiosity. When the statistics indicate that one in three car seats are installed incorrectly and over 75% of child passenger injuries are preventable, we must introduce a solution. In our seat – we believe we have the innovation that will curb the statistics.

We now challenge car makers and seat manufacturers to take the next step in ensuring that our vision to curb the statistics keeps moving forward.
