Air travel can be a nightmare for many people with reduced mobility who are forced to use a wheelchair in their everyday lives - and given that not all airlines offer the possibility of fast carriage on board, it becomes even more difficult. That is why the British engineer Richard Williams on November 17 presented his first prototype of a tourist wheelchair called the Traveler Chair, which can fold very smartly and when folded, appears to users as a small suitcase with a handle and special controls.
Thus, in its folded state, the Traveler Chair has a weight of 6 kg and, with its relatively small size, can easily be placed in the luggage compartment above the passengers ’head on board the aircraft - at least more than forty airlines will have such a device on board its characteristics. In addition, when the suitcase is folded, such a stroller is capable of holding up to 17 liters of volume and has separate compartments for convenient storage of documents and other papers.

And when the chair unfolds, it begins to look very much like a traditional stroller, with a slightly elongated and lightweight design - mainly due to the use of a special aluminum alloy, light and durable at the same time. In this state, the Traveler Chair is capable of supporting a person’s weight of up to 100 kg and can move quite flexibly and quickly, using an improved motor mechanism and convenient wheel control.
So far, such a concept device is currently under development at the Kickstarter site, where developers continue to improve and supplement it - according to preliminary data, the cost of such a chair is $ 560 for those users who are ready to purchase it in a preliminary way, but after their release the price tag will creep up to the level of 626 US dollars, which again is a rather attractive level, not to mention the high level of its quality.
