About Car Seats & Boosters
Commercial car seats can be a challenge when your child needs extra support to sit safely. Special Needs Car Seats & Boosters are always the safest option for travel, offering many adaptive models that just might be the solution. Some older children need just a little more than what a standard seatbelt offers. A harness system may help your child stay safe! As children with lots of positioning needs get older and heavier, many parents find themselves considering transporting their child in a customized seating system. We carry a full range of adaptive carseats accommodating riders from small children to adults with utmost safety in mind.
Car Seats have an internal set of harnesses to secure the child in the seat, while the vehicle's seat belt is used to secure the car seat to the vehicle seat.
Booster Seats are designed to raise the child up so the vehicle's seat belt properly secures the child and the booster in place. Many special needs Booster Seats have additional postural supports that provide positioning assistance that must be used at all times with the vehicle's seat belt.
On Tadpole Adaptive, we offer all the top models of Special Needs Car Seats and Transportation Equipment. We feature the Convaid/R82 Pilot. Wallaroo, Convaid Carrot 3 Booster Seat, Special Tomato MPS Car Seat, Thomashilfen Recaro Monza Nova 2 Reha and Defender, the Roosevelt and Churchill Booster by Merrit Manufacturing and the Inspired by Drive Spirit APS Carseat and IPS 2000.
