CHRISTINE KENT - STORY OF SURVIVAL
I am most comfortable in a ROHO Cushion considering that I'm a T-12 Paraplegic and I have a Pelvic tilt from being run over. I'm really into Handcycling now and the ROHO gives me such a smooth ride absorbing all the bumps from the road. I've tried other cushions, they were not a...Read More

Cushion has helped mitigate the tissue pain in my bottom, however, I would make one very important suggestion: put the valve on the right side rather than in the front so one can reach it themselves! Having to have one's caregiver reach down between one's legs to open and close the valve does not do a great deal for one's self-respect.
I would never achieve what I have been doing for a long time without my Roho cushions. As a paraplegic, which stem from a car accident, I did not use to sit down for a long time. When sit down for a little long time it used to result in some severe wound on my back. I had tried several cushions but none of them protected me from this kind of wounds.
I used to think that this is a fate of paraplegia and I should give up all my dreams. However, one day I ran into a paraplegic person and he told me about Roho. After that day, I ordered one and it changed all my life. I do not use the word, changed my life, for the hell of it. Contrarily its affect shaped all my future plans and dreams.
As I got that I could sit on my chair for a long time, I decided to go to University. Before finishing my department as a first rank student and awarded for a master scholarship in the USA, I participated in several activities such as paragliding, scuba, rafting, ATV safaris in forest, horse riding and also driving a car for long road for the activities. I would never be able to achieve these activities without Roho cushion.
I always have three Roho, for my car, for my wheelchair and also one more for my sportive activities. I went to the USA by plane several times for my master program. Roho was my first assistant while I was flying during 13 hours from Istanbul to Chicago. Thanks to my cushions I could challenge to difficulties of my disability. Although I was alone, I finished my program just because of my Roho Cushion as it protected me from pressure wounds. Without being safe with the cushion, I would never dare to such big journey. I would never dare to do my sportive activities which make me feel that I am still alive. Today I am planning to finish my PHD and be a professor in my country. Once again I have dreams. This simple cushion gave me courage to dream again.
