Freedom Seat

People in wheelchairs can't currently travel on airplanes in their own wheelchairs. Airlines are reluctant to give up the real estate and revenue on their aircraft. They must transfer twice from their wheelchair to an aisle-chair then to the airline seat in a difficult and dehumanizing process.

Our Freedom Seat design converts from a normal airline seat into a space where a wheelchair can be docked onboard an airliner. The process takes seconds and the wheelchair docking system is already used on buses and trains.

When not required for wheelchair accommodation the seat converts back to a normal revenue-generating airline seat.
