mifold Grab-and-Go booster seat is the most advanced, compact, and portable booster seat ever invented. mifold is more than 10x smaller than a regular child’s car booster seat and it’s just as safe.
mifold has been regularly crash tested successfully in certified facilities around the world and meets or exceed the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard: FMVSS 213 as defined by NHTSA (the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration).
The simple fact is that today, in one in five journeys, children do not have a car seat: in carpools, with grandparents or other relatives, in taxis, on vacations, in rental cars, with three-in-a-row and so on. And this does not include bigger kids on the border of the regulatory limits, who do not want to appear babyish to friends, who have already outgrown child restraints.
With mifold there is no longer any excuse. With a compact and portable device, a child can easily keep one with them all the time and drivers can keep spares, without cluttering up a car and losing cabin or luggage space.
With mifold, a child can always be safe no matter whose car they are in - and that is the mifold vision!

Describe your product in 3 words.
Advanced Compact Portable
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
In 2001, I had a vision to create a child car safety seat that was so compact and portable that my children could keep one with them all the time and be safe, no matter whose car they were in. This vision came from my own need. Our children were often in other people’s cars without safety seats: especially when we were carpooling with local families for the school run. I thought, if I could make a booster that was really small and really tough - one that could easily be taken everywhere - then our children could always be safe, no matter whose car they are in. It took a few years, and now my children are too old for booster seats, so I am delighted that other parents and caregivers are benefitting from the invention.
What makes your product special?
mifold is special because it is the most advanced, compact, and portable child car safety seat ever invented.
mifold is more than 10x smaller than a regular booster seat, and just as safe. mifold is completely different to all other Child Restraint Systems and succeeds in being so compact and portable by completely redefining the way booster seats work.
Regular booster seats lift the child up to be in the position of an adult; mifold does the exact opposite: instead of lifting the child up, it holds the seatbelt down (it’s that simple). The patented design takes the seat belt of the stomach and the neck, making safe, comfortable and easy to use. If the child does not need to be lifted, then the booster can be flat. If it can be flat, then it can be folded, making it both compact and portable.
mifold is the size of a paperback book: 10” long and 2” thick, it is less that 4 and a half inches wide when folded and weighs less than 1.8 pounds. This incredibly small, tough device is achieved using super tough plastic polymers (such as Delrin 100ST from Dupont) and 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminium. Top designers, engineers, and industry experts together have created mifold. It is protected by U.S. Pat. No. 9,376,088 with various other patents and design registrations granted or pending.
With mifold there is no longer any excuse. With a compact and portable device, a child can easily keep one with them all the time and drivers can keep spares, without cluttering up a car and losing cabin or luggage space. With mifold, a child can always be safe no matter whose car they are in.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
The most rewarding moments come when children, parents and other caregivers tells how much the love and appreciate mifold. Today, tens of thousands of children are riding more safely in cars than before they received their mifold Grab-and-Go booster seat.
The best part of the experience is working with such a wonderful, motivated and dedicated team. The mifold employees, our industrial designers, mechanical engineers, material scientists, manufacturing partners, supply chain and logistic experts and sales people, retailers and distributors, are all focused on the same vision. The knowledge that together we are improving the safety of children in cars, and can help reduce the number of injuries and deaths worldwide, is wonderful. This is why we all come to work in the morning. I had a vision 15 years ago. Today it is a reality.

In a real world setting, a child does not behave like a crash test dummy and when they have no “BOOST”, which this seat lacks, the child slides forward on the seat to get comfortable. In order for a child to be able to fold their legs over the vehicle seat, they will slide forward, leaving a gap behind them, which in turn loosens the seatbelt. This is exactly what an actual booster seat should be designed to prevent. Booster seats are designed to position the seatbelt AND to boost the child up to prevent the child from slouching or sliding forward on the vehicle seat. The Mifold seems to only address the belt positioning.
I am not happy with the product and definitely not convinced of the safety and will return it.
1. this might be "cogenital". It's too low for the sitting position. My 7 yo sit on that, and she could not see anything outside the window, made the 5 hr trip very boring for her
2. this might be an indeed safety concern. When the child sitting on it changing position, the back piece might move up to the seat back, making the booster seat as "L" shape, by doing so, the seat belt will move up to child's neck position from shoulder. I would suggest to have some kind of clip to keep the bottom 2 pieces flat to prevent it from happening.
Overall, it might be a good alternative for a short drive, but certainly not good for a long haul
In my car, our youngest uses the Mifold and the older kid can just use the seatbelt. In the wife's minivan, the youngest uses a car seat and the older one uses a Mifold, since the seatbelt doesn't quite sit right on his shoulder without it.
These are fantastic for when you need to put the kids in a grandparent's car, etc. Very easy to transport, carry, and store.
