I need help from a car seat tech familiar with car seat vests

Any certified car seat techs willing to help me out? We are going on vacation in a week and plan to use the Ride Safer travel vests for my 3 and 5 year old. My husband just looked if these are approved for use in Canada, and they are not. To use them legally, you need a prescription from a doctor. I contacted my doctor and she said she doesn't know anything about these things. She is requiring a letter from a certified car seat tech stating that my two children are safe to ride in these things.

Anyone willing to help me out?

That is something I am not willing to take on the liability for without seeing proper fit and use in person. I think most techs would feel the same way. Perhaps you can find a tech near you who can examine the vests and the car and the children.
