WE CAN PREVENT
INFANT HEATSTROKE DEATHS IN CARS.
Our patent-pending solution can be implemented in existing cars with a small change to car seats and zero change to cars.
Since 1998, over 500 children have died from hyper/hypothermia after being left in a car.
While over half these children were forgotten accidentally, the rest were abandoned intentionally by parents who underestimated the risk.
BUT A SOLUTION HAS BEEN INVENTED

IS THIS PRACTICAL?
Yes! The system is compatible with virtually all cars on the road. It can be implemented as an add on to existing child car seats, or more effectively incorporated into new car seat designs.
Title of Invention:
METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR CHILD SAFETY
First Named Inventor/Applicant Name:
METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR CHILD SAFETY
FIELD OF THE INVENTION
 The present invention relates generally to child safety systems and, more particularly, to a system and method for responding to problems with a child in a child
restraint within an automobile.
 Infant or child car seats are legally required in some form in every state in the United States and many other countries. Since 1998, it has been estimated that more than five hundred child deaths are attributed to heat exposure or hyperthermia because of a child being left unattended in a vehicle. Over half of these deaths have been estimated to have occurred because the caregiver forgot the child was in the vehicle. See, Catherine
McLaren, Jan Null and James Quinn, Heat Stress from Enclosed Vehicles: Moderate
Ambient Temperatures Cause Significant Temperature Rise in Enclosed Vehicles,
Pediatrics (Official Journal of American Academy of Pediatrics; Vol. 116, No. 1 Jul.

Studies show that within an averaged elapse lapsed time of 10 minutes, the temperature
rise is an average of 19 degrees Fahrenheit.
 For example, with an outside temperature of 80 degrees F., within ten minutes the average inside car temperature is 99 degrees F. Within twenty minutes, the average interior car temperature is 109 degrees F. “Heatstroke occurs when a person's temperature exceeds 104 degrees F. and their thermoregulatory mechanism is overwhelmed.” Id. “A core body temperature of 107 degrees F. is considered lethal as cells are damaged and internal organs shut down. Children's thermoregulatory systems are not as efficient as an adult's and their body temperatures warm at a rate 3 to 5 times faster than an adult's.” Id.,

 Many critical rescues of endangered children left in vehicles have been performed
by accidental bystanders who break into the vehicle to perform the rescue. In recent years states have passed legislation limiting criminal prosecution or civil damages resulting from well intentioned break-ins to rescue children. Another significant issue is improper
use of car seats. For example, a car seat may be installed incorrectly with its tether strap
unconnected or a child may be incorrectly fastened or remain unfastened during use. These situations can result in harm to the child or even death.
 Accordingly, what is needed is a system and method for responding to at least some forms of incorrect use of a child car seat including those caused by inadvertence or error.
L-Squared Technologies was founded by Dr. Robert Lyons and Eric Lupton specifically to develop a solution that would prevent the many tragic infant heatstroke deaths in vehicles each year. For the last two decades, Lupton and Lyons have, through their separate companies (Life Saver Pool Fence Systems and Safety Turtle, respectively), invented, manufactured, and distributed pool safety solutions for children aimed at preventing drownings. After focusing on water safety for so long, they were struck with the similarities between pediatric vehicular heatstroke and drowning and challenged themselves to create a real solution.
