Review: Having MS I seem to spend rather a lot of time sliding or falling to the floor. My main problem with this has been getting up again and this has always left me worn out.
I bought the Elk cushion recently and I have to say it's been my best purchase ever. It is so easy to use and even with 2 completely useless legs I could get back into my chair. It also means that nobody else risks their back trying to get me up. When inflated the cushion is solid and very stable so I felt very sfe on it. Brilliant idea.
