    Thanks Ellie, Turning cushion has not been mentioned before, I'll investigate this option.
    This would take the pressure off my back.

    Thanks

    Hi All, Purchased a portable grab handle which has made it easier for Lucy to get out of the VW Up ( Had to purchase it-postcode lottery as Kayleigh said) I l try and get a cushion FOC.

    Didn't realize how your postcode determines if you pay or not. Makes me laugh when the OT visits and suggestd something and finished the sentence- we don't supply so you will have to pay for that item. :-)

    I purchased a turning cushion, the thinnest one, for my dining room chair. It's great. I don't have any in the car because don't want to ruin the comfort of my original car seat. When the time comes I can get one. Lynne

    Hi Lynne,

    The thicker ones are comfy enough even for my bony bottom to spend over an hour in the car without discomfort

    My OT gave me the thin one a while ago, but I bought a thicker one when I lost more muscle.

    They're great inventions.

    Love Ellie.

    You could try a thin flexible one like these:-

    No reviews on these but some other similar ones were probably a bit small.

    You can also try two plastic carrier bags.

    Love Terry
