Child Door Safety Statistics; Protect Fingers with Door Finger Guards!
According to a study published by the American College of Emergency Physicians, children younger than 5 years old had the highest rate of finger amputations treated in hospital emergency rooms. Almost 75% of lost fingers from young children resulted from their finger(s) getting caught, jammed, or crushed in a doorway during the closing of a door. What is shocking, is that these finger injuries are entirely preventable where a door was involved. Door guards, or some might call them door finger guards are an effective and inexpensive way to save those precious fingers from being injured or worse.
