This product is what could best be described as a technically superior cushion, filling the base with air while a person is on it to aid them in getting up from a seated position. It can be applied to just about any piece of furniture with a back including couches and rockers. It comes in 2 integrated components, the seat cushion and the back support, both of which must be in contact with a furniture surface in order to function correctly. If these simple requirements are met, the cushion adds 8 inches when fully blown up, which it takes about 25 seconds to do once it is activated. An added benefit is that it makes almost zero noise, perfect for use at any hour!
The seat weighs in at 6 and a half pounds, making it very light and easy to transport from one piece of furniture to another. In the event that you must leave the house, a transport bag is included. It is usable everywhere, even in places that don’t have an electrical outlet nearby, thanks to the discrete battery and recharging station. The battery lasts about a week with regular use, so don’t forget to charge it on the weekends.
This cushion can withstand users up to 265 pounds, and has a removable cover that is laundry safe. There is no user height limit, the only safety issue being that their feet must touch the floor before the cushion is inflated. Users above average height should avoid using it on low chairs, as the cushion raises them 8 inches. If there is an option for a higher chair or seat, it should be used there for optimal results and to prevent the user from using too much leg power to stand up. Most buyers love to talk about how simple it is to use and the unmatched comfort level it provides.
