Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) August 29, 2008
InventHelp®, America's largest inventor service company, announces that one of its clients, an inventor from Margate, Fla., has designed a device that uses audible and visual alarms to ensure that a child is not left behind in a parked vehicle.
The "Bassett Safe System" could help parents or caregivers remember to remove children from car seats prior to exiting an automobile. The invention would be designed to prevent heat- and cold-related injuries that may occur when a child is left in a vehicle accidentally. The unit could provide parents and caregivers with peace of mind. The device would feature a compact, unobtrusive design and would be easy to install and operate.
The Bassett Safe System unit would consist of a square electronic control box, light-emitting diodes and a series of plugs and connectors. The control box would secure to the back of a child car seat via hook-and-loop fasteners or a pouch belt. The box would house standard replaceable batteries, which would supply power to the device. LEDs would be positioned on the car seat so that the driver can see them in the rearview mirror. Plugs and connectors would be wired to the car seat harness buckles. When each buckle is connected on the car seat harness, the control box would emit an audible alarm and cause the LEDs to flash. The control box would continue to activate audible and visual alarms at preset time intervals. A user would program the desired alarm interval into the box prior to using the device. Add-on accessories would allow the device to be programmed to call a cellular phone or pager at a preset time to remind parents or caregivers of a child's presence in the car. The device also may interface with a GPS satellite to provide the exact location of the seat in the event that a car is stolen.
InventHelp® is attempting to submit the invention to companies for review. If substantial interest is expressed, the company will attempt to negotiate for a sale or royalties for the inventor.
