Users comments
The user is extremely satisfied with the cushion, which provides a good grip for transfers. The StimuLITE cushion on the backrest improves sitting.
In the past he only used the shower chair for showering; since he has major problems with one shoulder he now also uses the chair as a toilet chair to avoid one transfer.
