Abstract:

The author is developing a crew seat which achieves the supine position, not by reclining the seat-back, but by elevating the pelvis and the legs forwards-upwards, while the head and the shoulders barely move. In order to differentiate this type of supinating seat from reclining seats, it is named PALE Pelvis and Legs Elevating seat. Author
