The cushions also make Shona feel more secure and safer when travelling in a vehicle. “When you’re paralysed from quite high up, you actually move quite a lot in your chair because you’ve got no core muscles to help engage and keep you where you are. If a car stops really quickly or goes around a corner, you can get thrown around all over the place! This back cushion wraps around me and actually keeps me a lot more secure''.
“They also allow me to recline the seat back a little bit and still feel like I’m supported in the seat. It’s nice to have a wee snooze!”
While she hasn’t needed to clean them yet, Shona says the cushions would be very easy to wipe down with a cloth if necessary.
Life may have changed dramatically, but Shona is as busy and active as ever – she works as a finance manager for Advance Ashburton Community Foundation, and has 10 grandchildren to spend time with. She’s pleased to have found some comfort and pressure relief in the Stabilo and Repose cushions to make life a tiny bit easier.
“I would definitely recommend them because you can use them in so many different places, not just the car. And if you struggle with your strength, they’re nice and light and easy to transport. They’re just so easy to cart around and so useful.”
