    Yes! Have 1! Changed my life! Try it if you can. Takes only 1 week, under 1 grand, insurance will likely reimburse most, even if not it's worth it! Alain is the best!

    I have no experience with this cushion. But I have learn the hard way that the evaluation is critical for any custom cushion. Many DME vendors do not seem competent to do a complex case. You are near the manufacturer. I would insist that the manufacturer, or someone that they or Lorrie recommends, does the eval. Good luck.
    T4 complete, 150 ft fall, 1966. Completely fused hips, partially fused knees and spine, heterotopic ossification. Unsuccessful DREZ surgery about 1990. Successful bladder augmentation using small intestine about 1992. Normal SCI IC UTI problems culminating in a hospital stay in 2001. No antibiotics or doctor visits for UTI since 2001: d-mannose. Your mileage may vary.
