Project Modseat, an innovative railway seat

MODSEAT is an innovative, modular, versatile and customizable project using new processes and materials for regional / intercity class trains. The final presentation of the project took place on the 30th of September at Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon.

This is a fully Portuguese initiative, borne out of a consortium led by MCG and composed by Almadesign, ERT, Instituto Superior Técnico and SETsa.

This new seat has significant improvements in passenger comfort as well as for the rail operator when compared to other seats in the market. With its sturdier construction, it still manages to be lighter while equipped with power supplies for mobile devices, an NFC system – near-field communication, a headrest with side cushions for a restful journey, foot and armrests, and more comfortable pillows.
