Comments about Foam Chair Cushion:
I use the cushion in my office chair and have to have a larger cushion on top of it. The cushion doesn't solve the problem I bought it for.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend

good cushion but not for me
About Me Arthritic, Elderly
I ordered this cushion to sit on at my kitchen table because I need extra height to comfortably eat there. I didn't realize it would make me too high to get my knees under the table and was not at all comfortable that way. However, since it was difficult to pack it up and return it due to the poor condition of the box it came in, I decided to use it as a cushion for my feet when sitting on the sofa watching TV.
Extra Thick Foam Cushion
from South St. Paul, Minnesota
I felt it was stiff and uncomfortable. I am not using it the way I thought I would. Disappointed.
Needs a non-slip surface

The pad slips off the chair too easily. It would be better with a non-slip surface.

This cushion is so dense that it is like sitting on a rock. It does not give at all. The height was good but that is all I can say that is positive.

About Me Long Term User
I bought this item to provide ease in rising from a chair (A medical condition I have makes that difficult.) From the picture I assumed that the pillow would be very sturdy and provide more support but in reality the pillow goes fairly flat when it is sat on. I am of medium weight so I was disappointed in that.

Great for a Help Up!
from Cadiz, Ky
We bought this product to help my husband's step father who is in a Nursing Home. He was having trouble rising from his easy chair and they would not allow electric assist chairs. This product did the trick and he is real happy. It would be nice if they could make them a little wider for larger chairs but it works great.
