Wheelchair air travel made easier and safer. Most wheelchair users will tell you, one of the most challenging parts of taking a flight is transferring into one of the aeroplane’s cabin seats. Able Move is a product aiming to change that.
Currently, 15 out of 36 main commercial airports in the UK are equipped with an appropriate piece of transferring equipment. Of course, this is commendable but what happens if the airport you fly to doesn’t? Able Move is a personal in-situ transfer seat that travels along with you and can be used with or without a hoist, giving peace of mind for air travellers with reduced mobility looking for a comfortable, quick, dignified and safe transfer back into their wheelchair.
Able Move couldn’t be easier to use. You simply place it into your wheelchair on the day you travel. You are lifted while in the transfer seat, meaning you don’t need to shuffle around with any other slings at either airport. You remain seated in it throughout your flight and are lifted with it, back to your own wheelchair at your destination.
Sitting on the Able Move during your flight is more comfortable and supportive than sitting on an airline seat or aisle chair, with the pressure alleviating cushion helping the lower back and bottom. Furthermore, Able Move provides greater options to keep you safe during emergencies than current aircraft protocols, it can be used for instant evacuation where necessary.
Travelling with Able Move removes the stress and anxiety throughout your entire air journey, ensuring your safety, dignity and comfort comes first, whilst providing additional benefits to special assistance and the airlines. Able Move is set to be a game-changing product.
