Product Focus: Safety 1st Water Resistant Railnet

As many parents know, children are always getting into trouble. Potential hazards are everywhere. Even walking near a balcony can be hazardous to our little ones. For today’s product focus, we’re taking a closer look at the Safety 1st Water Resistant Railnet.

Avoiding Falls

According to the CDC, falls are the leading cause of non-fatal injuries for all children up to age 19. In fact, each day roughly 8,000 children visit the emergency room for fall-related injuries. In total, this adds up to nearly 2.8 million children each year.

Understanding when to stay calm, and when to worry, can really help. Even the most careful tykes can get into trouble, so parents and guardians need to remain vigilant. Even a minor fall can result in a concussion or even worse. Beyond minor bumps and bruises, head injuries are serious concerns. Moderate to severe head injuries can include:

  • skull fractures
  • bleeding in or around the brain
  • contusions or concussions

Falling is one of the largest causes of traumatic brain injuries (TBI). In fact, it was the cause for 49 percent of TBI-related emergency room visits by children aged 0 to 17 years. As with most child safety issues, it pays to plan ahead. Knowledge, after all, is power.
