How to get in the car? Swivel Cushion and Handy Bar

Swivel cushion

The Standers Swivel Cushion and Handy Bar Combination allows you to get in and out of a car with the grace of a Duke of Hazzard sliding over the hood and climbing through the windows of the General Lee – and with 100% more safety. This product helps you pivot into the car seat and swivel 360 degrees to easily swing your legs in and out.  The Handy Bar is made with a sturdy alloy subframe and rubber grip, while the Swivel Cushion conforms to both flat surfaces and contoured bucket seats and remains in place regardless of how you position it (it can be modified to fit different locations).

You may think that this how Uncle Jesse, rather than Bo and Luke Duke, gets in and out of his car. It’s true that needing help getting in and out of a vehicle may be a sign of decreased independence, but look at the bright side; with the Standers Swivel Cushion and Handy Bar Combination at least you can still help yourself enter and exit the car instead of having someone else help you. All things considered, this product is not a hindrance but an advantage.
