Has anyone used anything like this? I was just saying to my caregiver that someone should invent this, and here it is!

We didn't, but I know some people do use these for a short time.
They are good while you have core strength but weak legs.

I tried using one but my legs were too weak. It’s great if you can!

Hi Nona,

I've used one for my wife/PALS for over four years now. We don't hoyer. I know it is unorthodox and not for everyone, but we believe it has given her an improved quality of life during these challenging years. She is 100% vent dependent and totally incapacitated. I'm happy to share how we do it with anyone who is interested. Not sure if I am eligible for private messaging, but maybe Laurie can connect you or others with me if not. No worries if this isn't of interest. All the best!

For sliding your butt around a chair in a vehicle just use 2 grocery bags on your seat cushion.
