I find this product very useful in getting my Person With Parkinson's in and out of the car. It helps him slide in and out, and on those occasions when he can't do that, it helps me slide him. A couple of things: The slide has a way of traveling with the person when entering the car -- thus leaving the person half on and half off the seat. To compensate, I usually place the slide half on the seat and half hanging over the edge nearest the door. That helps to keep the person on the slide more completely. It would be very nice if the slide (it is a rectangle of fabric sewn into a tube, then folded down) were larger. As it is, even with an effort, it is very difficult to keep in place for maximum "sliding" when positioning a person.
