The new “Special CARES” has an additional 10 inches of webbing added to the straps so it can accommodate a flyer up to 6 ft. tall. The harness-type device works like the flight attendant and pilot restraints by safely securing and supporting the upper body, instead of relying solely on the lap belt. Special CARES is exactly like the original device, only with longer straps to accommodate taller travelers. The Special CARES aims to make flying a more viable travel option for those with special needs. Sometimes extra gear, braces, or special seats don’t fit onto an airplane seat. When that happens, passengers are forced to check those items until the end of the flight. Flying with a lap belt as the only restraint simply isn’t an option in most cases, so air travel isn’t an option, either. Special CARES provides much needed upper body support throughout the flight.
