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.
