Folding-seat for elder / Seat

Folding-seat for elder
Folding-seat for elder

The old can use their ‘Senior-citizen-card’ to open
the seat.Elder now can board the subway without
worrying about standing begnning and the end.
And nobady can grab a seat which is prepared for
elder any more.
This seat will close up by itself few moment after
you get up. The construction could save lot of space
when there is no one to use it.It keeps 20cm wide
when it is closed up.
The folding seat can be seen as a handrail.At the
peak,what passenger need is succeed in piling into
the carriage (what mean more space) to save
there time during the travel.It is good idea to replace
a chair with a handrail.
