No parent plans on getting into a car accident with their child, but the reality is that these occur nonetheless. Parents who have children with health issues may not be in a position to do much for their children once ambulances arrive.
But one enterprising mom, Natalie Bell, created a seat cover that could potentially help children get better healthcare in a worst-case scenario. Hailing from Victoria, Australia, Bell thought of what would happen to her daughter, who has a cochlear implant.
Her Facebook post explains more,
“I always wonder what would happen if I was in a car accident with my daughter in the car and I was unable to let the doctors know that my daughter could not have a MRI due to having a cochlear implant, now I don’t need to worry about that with these seat belt covers.
These can be made for any special needs that the medical team will need to know if you are unable to tell them.”

But Bell thought of children who have other conditions, so she got to work and created seat covers for children with disabilities as well.
The idea took off and Personalised by Nat was born! She’s designed other products, such as keychains that also provide essential information.
Bell created this seat cover for children who are deaf.
And this one, which is specific about cochlear implants:
She even came up with a seat cover that can ensure service dogs stay with their owners.
Seat covers like this are simple, but can help medical staff in case parents or guardians can’t answer questions about their child.
What did you think of these seat covers? Do you know about other helpful tools that can help parents communicate in a jam?
