Benefits of the easyTravelseat for wheelchair users
Founded by wheelchair user Josh Wintersgill (seen in the image at the top of the page), who has Spinal Muscular Atrophy, the easyTravelseat is an in-situ transfer seat to improve the current process of transferring on and off an aircraft.
It ensures that passenger safety, dignity and comfort comes first.
easyTravelseat is extremely unique.
- You, the passenger, own the transfer seat, not the airport.
- You remain in the transfer seat for your entire journey – from home to the aircraft and to the hotel.
- It removes the stress of worrying about what transferring equipment an airport may or may not have.
- Special assistance staff do not need to maneuverer you into place in any other transferring equipment, pre or post boarding.
- It can be used immediately in emergency situations.
- Because it is simple to use, it reduces the possibility of language and communication barriers.
- It gives enhanced dignity and the ability to blend into the aircraft unnoticed.
- Its pressure-alleviating cushion provides better comfort.
