About Me Caregiver
Comments about Up Easy Lifting Cushion:
THERE SHOULD BE A WAY YOU CAN SIT ON IT IN THE CLOSED POSITION WITHOUT US HAVING TO BUY A STRAP SO THAT WE CAN TIE IT CLOSED. MY WIFE CANNOT SIT ON IT WITH IT OPEN;IT IS TOO HIGH ON ANY CHAIR AND SHE IS 5'4" TALL.ONCE SHE IS ON IT ITS FINE AND IT IS A GOOD HELP IN GETTING HER UP.YOU SHOULD HAVE AN OPEN OR CLOSED OPTION.TALL PEOPLE CAN EASILY USE IT. THE DESIGN IS CHEAP. WITH THE STRAP IT IS STILL DIFFICULT TO TIE CLOSED.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend

Item is a manual seat lift. It is extremely hard for someone who is handicap with very littlemobility to use because it must be adjusted with each use.

About Me Weak Legs From Polio
I had Polio at the age of 6. That was 1949 and over came much of its effect for many years. But now at the young age of 69 I have trouble rising from low chairs,sofa's or benches and I need help getting up and I tried the easy rise after it arrived on low over stuffed chair and got right out of the chair. Great. I'm hoping this will be true when visiting kids with deep couches. I found the easy-rise easy to adjust and fold up. I would recommend this for anyone having a problem riseing for a seat to walk. Thank-you

Bought this seat for my Mom, who recently had a knee replacement, to use in her living room since the couches were too low for to get up from on her own. Easy to calibrate and gives encourages her since she is able to move around more independently. Very pleased!

I would buy this product again and again
By Nana Anna

I keep it on my kitchen chair--the chair I use the most. I weight 122--doesnt seem heavy enough even at lowest setting-but I manageI find rising from the chair is so much easier and since Ive been using it--my knees do not hurt as much I really wanted a pillow which would be more "mobile" to use in restaurants, etc. But this is great for use in the home on the most used chair.
