In cabin seats, it’s a question of comfort, and Franklin Products of Torrington, Conn., has an answer. The company calls it Soft-Touch and claims it is superior to the currently popular memory-foam products. According to Franklin ergonomist Vesa Vannas, Soft-Touch provides better support and reacts more quickly to passenger movements than memory foam. It is designed to improve weight distribution and has “a very soft feel,” despite its chemistry of more durable higher density polymers.
