Visit Criteria

After completion of a 20-minute screening and consent phone call, if you are eligible and decide to participate, you will be asked to fill out a brief online survey that asks questions about yourself and your experiences with car seats. Then, you will be asked to come to our location at CHOP for one study visit, where you will then participate in a series of car seat scenarios. In these scenarios, we will ask you to install a car seat into a vehicle seat, and then harness a doll into the car seat. You will complete 3 scenarios in total. After each scenario you will complete a brief survey, and then at the end of the visit we will ask you some follow-up questions about your experience. The visit can take up to 1.5 hours total.
