The Skycare Chair feature as narrow, wheelchair-like design that places the wheels under the seat rather than at the sides and utilizes a hand-operated lever system to allow the user to move the chair forward or backward. It also has no armrests to facilitate transfers. The device is compact and collapsible for easy storage. TITLE: Wheelchair for Air Travel. WEBSITE: Yanko Design.
