Car seats for back pain / arthritis sufferers

You don't realise how easy it is to get into a car when you're fully fit and healthy. However, my dad has great problems with his back and finds getting into and out of cars difficult and either has to brace against the car seat and slide down or fall into the seat. A large car like a Disco or Landie would be ideal, but costly and far too big for my mum to handle. (She's just diddy. )
I'd like to see car seats that swing sideways out of the car and raise up, allowing the driver / passenger to seat themselves by simply sitting onto the seat, rather than down into. Once seated, press a button and the car seat lowers back down and swings into the car, where it locks onto its rails again, allowing it to be adjusted forwards and back as normal.
