Better Board / Subway Foothold

Better Board
Better Board

Incidents such as wheel chairs getting stuck between the space of the platform and a subway train has been a continuing issue. Plus, people get stuck between the closing doors when in a hurry.
To prevent these problems, BETTER BOARD opens up its folding body as soon as the subway train’s door opens, filling up space between the platform and the subway train. Plus, a motion sensing detector prevents from closing when a passenger is boarding.
Message written on the back of the board shows the passenger that missed the train to take the next train.
