Hug Me Joey, LLC Licenses Technology to Car Seat Manufacturer BRITAX

Rocky River, Ohio, February 1, 2013 — Hug Me Joey, LLC (, whose car seat and baby carrier support system is designed to protect infants and premature babies, has signed a nonexclusive license for its patented technology to South Carolina-based car seat manufacturer BRITAX (

“We are so pleased that Hug Me Joey’s product is being licensed to BRITAX, an industry leader with a reputation for high-quality car seats,” says Esther Verbovszky, Founder and Developer, Hug Me Joey, LLC. “Their commitment to keeping children of all ages safe meshes well with our company’s overarching philosophy. We hope this deal is just Hug Me Joey’s first step toward making our support system widely available and more accessible through other safety-first car seat manufacturers in the future.”

Hug Me Joey’s support system helps keep babies positioned properly while in a car seat or carrier, which ensures they are not only safe, but comfortable. “Our products have been proven to improve breathing problems and decrease digestive troubles related to abdominal pressure, two things which often occur in poorly positioned infants,” says Verbovszky. “In other words, Hug Me Joey offers peace of mind to parents.”

The system is especially beneficial for premature babies and infants with low birth weight, two groups which are often too tiny to fit in even the smallest car seats.

Hug Me Joey’s support system is designed to fit in nearly every existing car seat. To-date, the company has sold 80,000 of its products.

The company’s Hug-Me-Joey Infant and Child Products offer a complete support unit for baby car seats and baby carriers, to improve breathing problems and decrease digestive troubles occurring in poorly-positioned infants.
