Why I Invented a New “Swivel Car Seat” for Seniors

inspiration for new swivel car seat for seniors

 

The Ruby Slipper Car Seat Cover® was created for my mother, Ruby Miles. She had several medical and physical conditions that zapped her of upper and lower body strength. For instance, she had problems getting into the car. She could only get as far as the edge of the passenger’s seat and did not have the strength to push herself back in to the seat to put on her seat belt. My problem was I did not have the strength to get her back into the seat either.

The Ruby Slipper® was the answer. It was no longer difficult to get my mother into the car safely, and did not take super powers to do! I thought this was a type of “swivel car seat for seniors” that other people with aging parents could appreciate, too.

I was looking for something that would help me get settled into the driver’s seat of my minivan. I am a senior man dealing with several serious health issues including my oversized body (both height and girth). I am also suffering severe lower body pain that makes readjusting in the seat an awful experience. I was finding that the fabric seats in my van was “grabbing” at my pants, making me have to raise up off the seat to get into a comfortable driving position – causing excruciating pain.
