Enabling those with reduced mobility the ability to travel with freedom and independence
“life can unfold with ease”
Freedom and Independence
Traveller Chair is a carry-on bag that turns into a wheelchair. Traveller Chair helps people with reduced mobility to travel with freedom and independence with their innovative range of products. It’s a revolution for travellers with reduced mobility – in particular anyone who has difficulty walking between modes of transport. No more waiting at airport terminals for service providers to bring you a wheelchair. Traveller chair transforms from a carry-on case into a transit wheelchair in 30 seconds.
All too regularly people with difficulty walking lose their confidence and their independence, and end up travelling less and less, hampered and worn down by the obstacles that a journey can present.
For the designer and founder of Traveller Chair, Richard Williams, it was important to make travelling as easy and stress free as possible – having learnt from personal experience of travelling with his wife Jane. Jane, who has had cerebral palsy since birth, suffered a miserable experience upon landing at Heathrow from Asia. It was a grimly familiar scenario, recalls Richard, “finding ourselves stranded on the aeroplane, at 5:30 in the morning, waiting for our arranged assistance that didn’t turn up – not for the first time.”
Lightweight and Easy
So lightweight, it can be carried on a shoulder strap, fold out with ease and elegance into a transit wheelchair in less than 30 seconds. When it’s finished with it, it folds away with similar ease, converting into a carry-on case that is small enough to store in an overhead locker, car boot or luggage rack. The Traveller Chair complies with hand luggage requirements on 41 different airlines. That means it stays with the passenger for the whole journey, ensuring comfort and self-sufficiency for the entirety of every trip.
In spite of being so lightweight and compact, the Traveller Chair can carry up to 16st (100kg) of weight,. It also comes with a matching rucksack and two bespoke cases that fit perfectly onto the chair, allowing it to act as a luggage trolley. The Traveller Chair has revolutionised the way Richard and Jane travel, and now they want to share its benefits with the wider world. This extraordinary invention has the capacity to change lives, and to bring more autonomy, independence and confidence to users.
Go and Explore with Traveller Chair
Richard has one message for the mobility challenged community: “Go and visit that grandchild that you have not seen for ages. Go and explore that city that you thought you would never get the chance to.”
