U.K. charity will unveil travel seat for disabled children

The Medical Engineering Resource Unit, a charity in the U.K., has worked with aviation authorities and British carriers such as Virgin Atlantic to create a special foldable chair for children who have a disability. The seat, for travelers 3 to 11, will be designed to fit into the standard airline seat design. Virgin Atlantic hopes to offer the new seat by September at no extra cost to passengers. "Parents with young disabled children may believe their needs cannot be met and do not consider taking a trip by plane," said TravelChair designer Graham Race.
