Transport & Storage

The Trax are designed to be transported and stored laying flat. The great thing is that they stack very thin and you can store other equipment on top! Beto in the photo here is transporting his Trax in the back of his accessible van. If by chance you do need to transport the Access Trax standing upright, no worries. You can always lay them down flat once you get to your destination.

Did you know you can also check the Access Trax as luggage on an airplane? Check out the next section to learn some specific tips for securing your pathway for plane travel.

Access Trax & Plane Travel

Yes, that’s right! The Access Trax are so portable that you can take them with you on your travels for wheelchair accessibility on-demand. Simply check the Trax as luggage on the plane as your assistive device. Airlines typically do not charge fees for this, but please check in advance. Here are some specific tips for air travel with your mats:

 

  • Connect the mats using the hinges & accordion fold into stack
  • Using duct tape, secure at least top and bottom and corners to prevent opening
  • Connect to carrying strap if you have one
  • Check as luggage (not carry on)
