AGR is the German association for a healthy spine. The organisation consists of 150,000 physiotherapists and doctors who deal with spinal problems. Activities of AGR are guided by safety, comfort and ergonomics of the sitting position, also in child seats. In addition, the association cares for an accessible and user-friendly assembly and disassembly of car seats, which also has a direct impact on the health of the back, in this case, of the parents.
Tests are not performed directly by Aktion Geunder Rücken, but by independent bodies such as Forum Gesunder Rücken besser leben eV and Bundesverband deutscher Rückenschulen e. VS The products are tested to help with back diseases, reduce back pain.
Products marked with AGR are intended to provide support for the spine and motor organs, which will relieve the body and bring relief.
A positive AGR rating is awarded to products that have shown a positive effect on the human back and spine. Verification takes place as a result of thorough research carried out by an independent commission composed of medical experts from many disciplines.
Undoubtedly, in the context of child seats, their good structure, which supports the spine and relieves it during the journey, is an important feature. AGR-approved seats not only prevent back problems and back pain, but can also be helpful in the treatment of diseases related to the musculoskeletal system.
AGR emphasized in the Pixel and Pixel PRO seats, above all, their low weight, which supports the parents’ spine. The light and very durable EPP material was also appreciated. Additionally, it was noticed that EPP absorbs energy during a road accident. AGR also appreciated the insert, which stabilizes the pelvis, spine and head of the child, providing the little passenger with an appropriate level of comfort and safety.
In the opinion of AGR, AeroFIX and AeroFIX RWF are distinguished by a very good level of adjusting the seat to the body proportions thanks to the height adjustment of the headrest, belts and the possibility of changing the inclination of the seat. Seats were appreciated for the possibility of rearward-facing transport of children up to 105 cm tall.
The SKY seat, like the previous seats, was awarded for the possibility of adjusting the seat to the child thanks to the headrest adjustment and the modular insert. The possibility of rearward-facing transport of a child up to 125 cm or 25 kg has also been emphasized by AGR. In the case of SKY, it only meets the requirements with the use of the Antiwedge.
AGR has become an important determinant that can help in making decisions about purchasing products such as child car seats, which value not only safety, but also ergonomics. Take care of both your child’s spine and yours.
