Indispensable for active quadriplegic disabled individuals flying commercially who require transfer assistance. Craig Hospital in Denver CO, the top SCI Rehabilitation Center in the world, recommends every quadriplegic goes home with a Comfort Carrier and uses it in their Recreation programs such as their Hobie Cat Days.

15 years of Airline Employee Feedback on Quadraplegic Comfort Carrier Transfers on Aircraft

  • Travel organizations serving the disabled. Flying Angels offers an alternative to air ambulance. Every nurse carries a comfort carrier with them on every flight!
  • Airlines should have a few in the overhead bin of every aircraft alongside much more expensive and less frequently used automatic defibrillators.  Used during boarding, it can be left in place throughout the flight in case of any emergency, and help the guests off the airplane as quickly and efficiently as possible on arrival.
  • Adaptive Sports and Recreation - to transfer someone from their wheelchair to anywhere else such as a kayak, pool, sit-skiing, mattress on floor of a tent, etc.
  • Emergency Evacuation from any non-ground floor fire escape in any public buildings. Mandated by the ADA. Use by itself or with an evacuation chair.  managed-care facilities, hospitals, nursing homes, group homes, accessible housing, etc. Emergency Preparation starts with each person - Be Prepared for the unexpected! 
    • The Comfort Carrier was selected by the Secret Service for emergency evacuation of the White House and US Capital of anyone unable to walk in an emergency.

For anyone unable to walk and transfer themselves, many activities and destinations seem impossible. New opportunities as broad as your imagination await!


Be prepared for the unexpected, even inaccessible locations, an elevator might be out of order or the vehicle with a wheelchair lift break down.
USA Today - "Airlines tackle wheelchair need" (or not!) March 13, '08 For passenger service workers, those who assist with wheelchair transfers, "the average pay is less than $19,000 a year. Some 60% said they had not been formally trained in how to lift an immobile passenger."
Designed by Mark E Felling, C5 Quadriplegic Electrical and Rehabilitation Engineer, a power wheelchair user who is 100% dependent on assistance for transfers has flown round trip safely. Mark left independently from the door of his home, Comfort carrier already in place. He drove to the airport, parked after fighting the ticket machine, asked another traveler to throw his bag on his lap, checked in, and navigated security. He directed non-English speaking airport handicap assistance personnel is how to lift him from the wheelchair into the aisle chair since a handle is universally understood, and from the aisle chair into the aircraft seat.  The process was reversed on landing, and using public transportation arrived at Metro Health Medical Center for nuero-prosthetic implant research.
