For those confined to a wheelchair, getting around onboard an aircraft can be quite challenging & usually requires assistance from one of the flight crew. Adding this element to the already frustrating flying experience can discourage users from travlling altogether. This is where the Skycare Chair wins- utilizing wheels placed under the seat rather than at the sides & a hand-operated lever system to move forward or backward. It offers independence when moving to & from the lavatory or from chair to gate.
