Discussion Summary

SF Village Explorers explore a set of devices to help enter or exit an automobile.

Starting with a rotating seat cushion, the group handles and discusses stabilizing bars and a hanging strap for help in and out of the car. Members are interested in where the devices are available, and ask questions about size and function of the rotating seat cushion.

Size and type of car can pose various problems for people. With the exception of the hanging strap, the group agrees they appear to be worth a try, if only for people who are riding along.
