More young children are going to the emergency room for injuries due to high chairs in the U.S.
According to a new study published in the journal Clinical Pediatrics, about 9,400 American children are hurt each year.
Researchers examined data from children ages 3 and younger who were treated at U.S. emergency departments.
The study found that between 2003 and 2010, the rate of injuries increased by 22%.
According to Fox News, nearly all injuries associated with high chairs or booster seats were due to falls.
The study found that a lot of kids fell while climbing or standing on the chair.
However, a lot of them were hurt because the chair’s safety restraint system was either not being use or was improperly used.
