Top New Safety Innovations for 2009 For Keeping Your Kids Safe
by Alison Rhodes

  • AirDrives -
    Kids as young as five years old are now walking around with MP3 players and IPods attached to them. And what researchers are discovering is that the earbuds used for them is causing hearing damage that they used to see only in older adults. In fact, earbuds increase the decibals enough to cause hearing loss after only and hour and fifteen minutes. AirDrives is a great new ear piece that sits on the outside of the ear rather than inside, thereby allowing natural sound to get through and decreasing the risk of hearing loss.

  • Kids Safety Flashing Pedals -
    Bicycle accidents send more children to hospital emergency rooms than any other recreational sport in the United States. Nearly 10,700 children are hospitalized every year because of the injuries they suffered while riding their bicycles. Many of these accidents also involved a car. The Kids Safety Flashing Pedals are LED studded pedals that are visible up to 1,500 feet away. They work without batteries and can be seen from the front, rear and side of the bicycle.
