• Air Access Design makes travelling by airplanes easier for the disabled

  • People with disabilities do have their fair share of problems while travelling, particularly by air, and with the 2012 London Paralympic Games coming up, designer Priestman Goode has come up with a great way that makes travelling easier. Called the Air Access Design, this concept basically uses a detachable wheelchair that doubles up as an airplane seat, allowing passengers to get on airplanes, travel and alight with ease. Using 360º-pivoting wheels, the concept enables the wheelchair-seat to quickly lock on to the plane’s seats and is equally comfortable and ergonomically-designed. A concept like this could help travelers to the Paralympic Games and could make airplane-travel an easier affair for the disabled world over!
