What is the significance of the CYBEX patented 3-position reclining headrest?

The CYBEX patented 3-position reclining headrest is part of the group 1/2/3 car seats and cleverly prevents the child's head from falling forward while asleep and guarantees optimal protection in the case of a side-impact.
 
Side-impact collisions are particularly dangerous for children. Accident data shows that these collisions occur half as frequently as head-on collisions yet cause far more serious injuries.

The lack of space on either side of the car cannot compete with the protective function of a crumple zone, making side-impact collisions considerably more dangerous than head-on road accidents. A high-quality car seat should, therefore, be equipped with suitable protection that helps protect the child. 
 
The reclining headrest is a revolutionary technology that can be adjusted and safely shifts the balance point of the child's head slightly back. This prevents the child’s head from falling forward while being asleep. In case of a side-impact collision, the child's sensitive head thus remains within the safety zone of the seat, ensuring optimal protection and a more comfortable sleeping position for a safe and peaceful journey.

By developing this patented safety technology, CYBEX has succeeded in eliminating a frequent risk caused by incorrect usage, making car travel for children a little bit safer as well as more comfortable.
