Up N Go Cushion has been designed to help seniors and other individuals with mobility issues transition from a sitting position to a standing position and vice versa. Each padded foam cushion contains a spring that will gently push you up or guide you down without pushing you forward. This cushion is suitable for use on any seat, such as a couch, a chair or even a car seat, and its gray fabric cover is removable and machine washable.
The cost of Up N Go Cushion is $49.95 and the shipping is FREE!

Each of these cushions is powered completely by the built-in hydraulic spring and a user's momentum, so no set of batteries or electricity is required to use one. As you go to sit down or stand up while your cushion is in place, the hydraulic spring will slowly release itself to move either up (standing) or down (sitting) as you move. This will allow you to support as little as 20 percent of your body weight instead of 100 percent, and thereby increase the likelihood that you'll be able to stand or sit successfully without pain.
You will have the option of customizing how much the spring within your cushion will move to suit your weight and shape. This isn't absolutely necessary, and can be done later if you choose, but if you'd like to find out how to do it, consult your instruction manual.
Next, after you've customized your lift or bypassed that step, you'll need to place your cushion on any seat, with the black base facing down and the gray cover facing up. The non-slip base will help it sit securely on your seat without sliding around as you get ready to sit down.
Once your cushion's in place, start to sit down as you normally would. As soon as your bottom hits the cushion, the cushion's spring will begin to guide you gently downward. You'll still have to put in a bit of effort with your muscles, but far less than usual. After you've sat down fully, you'll likely notice that the cushion's padded material feels comforting against your bottom, hips, and tailbone.
When you're done sitting down, slowly begin to get up and allow your cushion's spring to gently guide you upward this time. Following that, either leave your cushion where it is to sit on later or fold it up and store it away in a place of your choice.
The Up N Go Cushion is light enough that most users will be able to fold it up and carry it around in one hand by using the built-in handle. It's also small enough to be put in the trunk or the backseat of a vehicle if you want to transport yours somewhere away from your home. It may come in handy in public places like churches or movie theatres, or at work if you perform a desk job.
Almost anyone will be able to use one of these cushions since they'll support up to 300 pounds of weight. If you're heavier than 300 pounds, you could try using one anyway, but its spring could eventually break due to having to support a heavy load.
When it's got its cover on (it's best to leave that on at all times), the Up N Go Cushion is water-resistant, which means you'll be able to use it outdoors, regardless of the weather. As a result, you may decide to enjoy an afternoon out on your back deck or on a local park bench more often than you otherwise would. You might also choose to use your cushion if you go to an athletic game or outdoor concert and the only seats available are hard bleachers.
Each cushion's cover is also machine washable, so if you accidentally spill something on it, or transfer dirt or dust from your pants onto it, it won't need to be hand-washed or dry-cleaned. Just remember to separate the cover from the rest of the cushion before doing any washing since it's not a good idea to put the inner foam part of the cushion in the washing machine.
While seniors experiencing stiffness may be the people who'll most commonly use this type of cushion, each one is suitable for a person of any age or gender. Adult athletes or physical laborers who are experiencing back or hip discomfort may find using one to be especially beneficial, and it can provide comfort to anyone during a long drive. A child can use the cushion safely, but an adult should warn them to keep their hands away from the spring and customize the child's lift for them.
Using one of these cushions will encourage a user who would otherwise need help standing up or sitting down to do it on their own. This will allow a senior or someone with a disability to remain independent for longer than they would without their cushion, and help them maintain their self-confidence, too. Users of the Up N Go Cushion will be able to simply enjoy the company of their family and friends when they're around without having to ask them for physical assistance all the time.
It's nice that the gray shade that this cushion comes in is both age and gender-neutral, but it would be better if the cushion could be made available in a few different shades. Some people just prefer a color that's brighter than gray, and if more than one person per household gets a cushion like this, different shades will make it easier to tell them apart.
Although having a comfortable seat underneath one's bottom can reduce the pain that a person might experience in their back or tailbone, this cushion would be improved if some behind-the-back padding could be added. The spring-powered lift could still work in the same way, but there'd just be some extra vertical cushioning added to support at least the lower back.
Some people who have difficulty getting into or out of a seat, but don't have anyone to help them, can struggle and strain for up to a half hour's time before finally achieving their aim. Fortunately, when you obtain an Up N Go Cushion, you'll likely be able to end this sort of struggle without seeking anyone's assistance. With this cushion, you may be able to stand or sit on your own in as little as 30 seconds—just a fraction of a half hour—and save your time for chores or fun activities.
