Happy Hips Service

Helping babies with Hip Dysplasia

If you have a child with baby Hip Dysplasia, you might be worried about finding a safe car seat with the extra leg space that’s needed. Trying to adapt a standard car seat, by using towels for example, is very unsafe.

At Maxi-Cosi, we want to make sure that all children can travel safely in cars. That’s why we loan special car seats to parents of children with Hip Dysplasia. 
If your child has Hip Dysplasia, a standard car seat won’t provide the flexibility, comfort and safety they need. Working closely with medical specialists in child Hip Dysplasia, our engineers have adapted one of our car seats, the Maxi-Cosi Opal, to create the Maxi-Cosi Opal HD. The Maxi-Cosi Opal gives the extra back support and space for the legs that’s so vital for children with Hip Dysplasia. Parents in Europe can borrow it through our Happy Hips Service, and feel confident knowing their child is travelling safely.

This service works based on an initial deposit from you of £120. For every month (or part month) you require the seat we deduct £10, with any remaining deposit being refunded to you upon safe return of the seat. 

Is your baby having treatment for Hip Dysplasia? Request an OPAL HD directly via the online application form or Contact our Customer Care team for more information on our Happy Hips service.
