Air cushion sit-to-stand aid

Air cushionWinifred, who has a muscle -wasting disease, needed assistance to stand up from her chair before using a walking frame.

An air bag made of tough boating material was placed on the chair seat and attached to a Bravo air pump to lift her.  A second low pressure suction pump was connected via a quarter turn block valve so she could deflate the cushion after rising.  A normal cushion was put over the air bag.  Winifred can now use her chair and has no difficulty rising from it or sitting down again.
