Pros: the quality
Cons: the size
" I don't want to be negative about the product as it came exactly as described, seemd good quality and definitely swivelled! However, it didn't seem to help mum at all in getting in or out of the carl, as I'd hoped. I'm wondering if it actually needs to be slightly bigger as unless you sit down on it in the middle first time, it's difficult to manoeuvre an elderly person who may have ended up 'half-on and half-off the seat. I think it will work better on our dining room chairs enabling mum to get up from the table much more easily. "

" I tried using this swivel seat to help me get in and out the car - it doesn't swivel! Being a big lad, I thought that my weight might be the issue so asked my not overweight wife to try it and it still doesn't work. I have since returned to Halfords and got a refund. Full marks to Halfords for their quibble free returns policy but zero marks for the product. "

Response from Halfords:By Web TeamMay 24, 2012
This flexible cushion will bend to the shape of a deeply dished or 'bucket' shaped seat. This will increase the friction between the sliding parts and may make it harder for it to swivel. However it swivels freely on the flatter seat profiles used on most car and domestic seating.

Pros: fits all seats no matter what shape they are, comfortable to sit
Cons: none
" I'm a driving instructor specialising in teaching the elderly, learning difficulties and the disabled, many of my clients have mobility problems and this aid has hreatly improved things for them, rather than the "normal" rigid plates that rotate about themselves, this is two mats that slide over each other, giving the advantages of fitting all seats and being very comfortable to sit on for long spells "

Pros: still functions if the cushion hangs over the seat
" Most swivel cushions I've seen have a firm base and a soft top. This makes them not so useful for a car due to the shape of the seats. However,this has a soft top and base so it bends to fit the seat perfectly. The base has a gripping layer so the cushion does not move about,a silky-smooth layer between the pads to ease the movement and padded top making it comfortable. The cushion has come apartt a few times but it just clips back together . "
