wümgo; an improved child backpack carrier, designed to protect a child from injuries if a wearer trips and falls. The impact absorbing hard outer shell protect the child's head, spine and body caused by sudden deceleration events resulting from the wearer falling and striking sharp or stationary objects such as rocks or the pavement. It's slim oblong shape allows the wearer to easily maneuver around tight spots. wümgo is lightweight and comfortable. Typically prior carriers are made from cloth and leave the child exposed and vulnerable to injuries if the wearer accidentally trips and falls.

I am an artist. I am currently creating my most important work. I invented wümgo, a protective child carrier. I was awarded a utility patent last year on Mothers Day. It is important for me to know that I am working every day to offer parents a safer way to carry their children. Currently every 30 minutes a child under the age of five is injured in a stroller or child carrier accident. A majority of these injuries result in traumatic brain injuries or skull fractures.
