Default New concept features trick airline wheelchair seat that allows in-flight mobility

So the seat may not be quite as comfy as a standard chair, but dang this would make flying easier for those who rely full time on wheelchairs. Especially because you could zip off on your own to the bathroom. Pretty cool idea. -D

An award-winning adaptable wheelchair design by Irish designer Ciara Crawford offers a new take on accessible aircraft cabins, and aims to encourage airlines to make it easier for passengers with limited mobility to fly with dignity.

The so-called Row 1 airport wheelchair system would allow passengers to use the same electrified wheelchair to get from the airport check-in desk to the aircraft to their destination, eliminating the need for multiple seat transfers.

This innovative chair can be altered quickly on the aircraft by removing the larger wheels at the back. It is then fitted directly onto the passenger seat.

Smaller cast wheels in the bottom frame allow the chair to be eased into position and used for mobility in-flight.
