Using a CARES Flight Harness for Children with Special Needs

December 6th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Travelling with children is difficult enough at the best of times. If your child has a disability it can be very stressful and making your child secure on the flight is of primary importance. If your child requires a hauling brace to provide upper body support in an airplane seat, you know what a hassle it is to make arrangements months in advance with the airline. And you have to do it again before each subsequent trip! Check with your child’s doctor or physical therapist to determine if the CARES child aviation restraint provides sufficient upper body support for your child. If it does – no more having to make arrangement weeks or months in advance with airlines because CARES is already certified for children 10 – 20 kilos for all phases of flight. So, just book your flight, carry your 500gram CARES on board in your pocket or purse, install it on any seat in one minute. And know that your child is secure for taxiing, take off, turbulence and landing.
The other Harnesses available are the Crelling Harness, The Burnett Upper Body Support and the Travel Chair you may like to look at all of these before making the decision as to which is best for your child.
IS YOUR SPECIAL NEEDS FLYER LARGER THAN 20 KILOS AND TALLER THAN 1 METRE

If so, and if CARES provides sufficient upper body support (check with your physical therapist or doctor) you can still use CARES.
