Child Car Seat Study


Researchers from Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA) are seeking parents from the Greater Sydney Area, who are planning to purchase a child car seat, to participate in a child safety study. Each participant will receive $100 off the cost of the car seat. 

We are conducting a study on the use of information sources about the correct use of child car seats.

Who can take part?

If you are looking to purchase a new car seat, and it is one of the two seats in the study (Britax Compaq for 0-4 year olds, or Britax Maxi Guard Pro for 6months- 8 years) then you could take part in our study. You do need to live within 2 hours of Sydney, have a current driver’s license and be one of the child’s primary carers.

What’s involved?  We talk on the phone and check you are eligible, and if you want to participate you purchase the car seat online, we send it to you with our study materials. After six months, we arrange a home visit at a time that suits you. At that time, we check the car seat and conduct a 10 minute survey. We give you feedback if anything could be done more safely and arrange the $100 reimbursement. You will also be helping us identify what helps in guiding the correct use of child car seats.
