director, ableMove (aka easyTravelseat)
Josh Wintersgill founded ableMove Ltd (you may know us as easyTravelseat™) in 2017. Josh has travelled extensively, all the while experiencing first-hand, the issues associated with being a wheelchair user and travelling by air. The deterioration of his SMA has made travelling by air increasingly difficult in recent years and no products existed on the market to meet the challenges he was consistently facing. Josh has now developed a range of products that assist wheelchair users in not only travel but day to day independent living. Josh has won a multitude of awards, including the UK Disabled Entrepreneur Awards and Great Britain’s Best Young Entrepreneur. Josh also actively campaigns to help improve air travel through accessibility advisory groups. Josh spent five years working in technology after graduating from University West of England in IT management and business and in 2019 received an Honorary Masters Degree in Technology.
