    Default [SYDNEY] Can you help us improve child car seat safety?

    Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA) is running a child car seat study looking at the factors that help or hinder proper child car seat use and is looking for volunteers to be part of the study.

    Who are we?
    NeuRA is one of the largest research institutes in Australia dedicated to the study of the brain and nervous system. Our area of research focuses on injury prevention.

    What is this research study about?
    Previous studies have shown that many child car seats are used incorrectly and that information in instruction manuals and labels are often not well understood by parents and carers. Incorrect and misuse of a child restraint can greatly increase a child's risk of injury when travelling in a motor vehicle. We hope to address this problem by developing an evidenced-based design guide for product information supplied with child restraint systems (car seats for children).

    What does this research study involve?
    This study involves a process called 'consumer-testing'. If you agree to take part, you will be asked to install a child restraint into a car using the materials (eg, instruction manuals and labels) we have given you. We then ask you to provide some feedback on whether you thought the materials provided to you were helpful in your child restraint installation experience. You can complete the study at NeuRA or can arrange with us to conduct it at a location convenient to you. The study typically takes about 1 - 1.5 hours to complete and participants will be reimbursed $25 to cover for travel expenses.
    • Be 18 years old or over
    • Own a current driver's licence
    No previous experience with using/installing a child restraint is required. Register your interest by filling out this survey. Visit the NeuRA website or email: c.ho@neura.edu.au (9399 1848) for further information.

    This study has been approved by the UNSW Human Research Ethics Committee (Reference no. HC15547)
    Chief Investigator: Dr. Julie Brown

    Participation in any aspect of this research is completely voluntary and you can withdraw at any time. The information you provide will be non-identifiable and only be used for the purpose of this research study.
