POSTA Seat Transfer Makes Travel More Comfortable to the Disabled

Travelling can often seem challenging enough, even for the fully ambulatory. The POSTA Seat Transfer Assist concept arose from the need for a more efficient and comfortable means of getting persons with disabilities on and off of airplanes.

Peter Short's idea was to make a sort of wheelchair especially for helping with this transition from the terminal to the built-in jet seat. It has small swivelling wheels to make it more nimble in tight spaces and it integrates a sliding support system on rails that's level with the onboard chairs. The POSTA Seat Transfer Assist can move a passenger seamlessly across with the very same cushion, either sideways or backwards. The process is painless for the person and the flight staff.
