Abstract

An assistance device developed by a man with quadriplegia can also by a very useful—and—pleasant product for older adults determined not to let their physical limitations hinder their sexual life. VidaCura.com’s sexual mobility enhancer, IntimateRider®, is a small chair with a very low center of gravity that glides forward and backward with just a bit of upper body movement. Special fabric conforms to the body for comfort and back support, and the device folds easily to fit under the bed or in a closet.
