A study just completed by Columbus’ Nationwide Children’s Hospital finds that 2 children are injured every hour in the U.S. by strollers and child carriers.  Some of the children involved suffered traumatic brain injuries including concussions.

I talked to one of the study’s authors, Kristi Roberts of Nationwide Children’s. 

Kristi Roberts is a researcher at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus.  The study will be published online in Academic Pediatrics.
