Ruby Slipper Swivel Car Seat Cover Wins New Product Award

ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Ohio -- The inventor of the Ruby Slipper Swivel Car Seat Cover, Katherine Miles, is excited to announce that this deceptively simple mobility product has earned the New Product Pavilion Providers' Choice Bronze Award at the 2021 Medtrade West national trade show. Sponsored by HomeCare Magazine, the honor highlights the potential of the Ruby Slipper to make a difference in the lives of seniors and others with limited mobility.

The Ruby Slipper Swivel Car Seat Cover helps people enter and exit a vehicle seat with ease, allowing seniors with limited mobility and persons recovering from injury or surgery to get to the places they want and need to go: visiting friends and family, running errands and going to medical appointments.

"To be selected for this award by our fellow Medtrade attendees means a lot," said Miles. "It's real confirmation that our simple little product can be a life-changer for many people. We are so grateful to Medtrade West and HomeCare Magazine for the opportunity to spread the word about the Ruby Slipper!"

"We're probably one of the lowest-tech products here," said Steve Porcaro, Ruby Slipper's Director of Business Development. "You don't have to change the battery, you don't have to learn to operate it. Just put it on the seat, set it up and you're good to go. People were very excited about the simplicity and the ease, and how comfortable and simple it was. And everyone said the same thing: how come I didn't think of that?"

Miles and the Ruby Slipper team look forward to making more connections at the upcoming Medtrade East event in October 2021 in Atlanta.

Car Seat Cover Becomes Key Part of Continuum of Care

TOWSON, Md. -- The inventor of the Ruby Slipper Car Seat Cover, Katherine Miles, explains that this seemingly-simple product-essentially, two pieces of slippery fabric-has proven to be a key part of a continuum of care for seniors with limited mobility and for persons recovering from injury or surgery.

The Ruby Slipper helps people enter and exit a vehicle seat with ease, allowing seniors and patients to get to the places they want and need to go: visiting friends and family, running errands and going to medical appointments.

* For seniors, the Ruby Slipper can help retain independence by removing a roadblock to transportation, freeing seniors to continue to enjoy a range of activities.

* For those recovering from illness, injury or surgery, the Ruby Slipper makes going to the doctor, hospital or physical therapist less of a challenge (or an impossibility), allowing the patient to continue the journey to health.

* For caregivers, the Ruby Slipper makes helping a family member, friend or client into and out of the car a much easier task, which expands the range of possible activities and reduces resistance to outings.

"For many seniors, the Ruby Slipper becomes a long-term part of their routine. Favorite activities can be sustained and contribute to overall enjoyment of life," said Miles. "Folks rehabbing from injury or surgery find the Ruby Slipper is a low-cost, easy-to-use way to continue their recovery. And as a former caregiver myself, I can vouch for the difference it makes when getting in and out of a car is no longer an obstacle."

Many customers agree and have shared their satisfaction with the Ruby Slipper:

* "WOW-what a huge difference it made! ... I just tuck her legs into the front and slide her in. It's SO easy and I can't be more thankful!"-Lisa Jennings

* "Didn't really believe it until I saw how it helped my mom move in and out of the car more easily."-Ely from Florida

* "This has proven to be the easiest car seat cover for me to use. It slides me in and out with no effort. After a fall, I had to find an easier way to get into the passenger seat ...."-T. Perkins

* "Very good product. My husband uses it in his driver's seat of car. He has decreased mobility in his hips. It helps a great deal."-Deborah Price

* "My dad has Parkinson's and we were having a hard time getting him in and out of a new car .... I knew we needed something to help him slide around once he sat down. This product was the perfect solution and has made a great impact on his ability and our ability (when he needs assistance) to get him in and out of the car."-Sherry Rolsma

Car Seat Cover Solves Mobility Problem for Physician with Spastic Paraplegia

TOWSON, Md. -- Malin Dollinger, M.D., an internist and oncologist with hereditary spastic paraplegia, was so pleased with the Ruby Slipper Car Seat Cover that he wrote an unsolicited review and recommendation in the summer 2019 edition of the Spastic Paraplegia Foundation's newsletter. Hereditary spastic paraplegia, an inherited neurological disorder, is characterized by progressive weakness and stiffness in the legs.

Dr. Dollinger, the newsletter's Medical/Research editor, wrote about how difficult it was to transfer from a scooter to the driver's seat of his handicap van. Once he had parked his scooter inside the van, he was able to pull himself up, step forward and sit sideways on the seat. But with his limited mobility, he could not turn his body to face forward. Dr. Dollinger described the problem:

"Then came the difficult/awkward task of sliding onto the seat while rotating my behind, to face forward. Most driver's seats on the vans were rough and difficult to slide across. ... My clothes always caught on the surface of the driver's seat, and it was very difficult to push myself onto the seat. No seat cover or upholstery was smooth and slick enough.

"Enter the Ruby Slipper car seat cover, a very clever new idea to solve this problem. Nothing like it before. ... You sit on the upper nylon layer and very easily slide across where you need to go, the two nylon sheets sliding over each other."

Katherine Miles, inventor of the Ruby Slipper Car Seat Cover, commented, "Even someone who has a scooter and handicap van can be stopped cold by the inability to sit back into a car seat. I'm so glad Dr. Dollinger found the Ruby Slipper. For a simple product, it sure can make everyday life so much easier for folks with limited mobility."

Mobility Device Inventor Interviewed on Podcast, Radio and TV

TOWSON, Md. -- The inventor of the Ruby Slipper Car Seat Cover, Katherine Miles, was interviewed recently on the Happy Healthy Caregiver podcast, where she shared her experience as a caregiver and how that led to the creation of the Ruby Slipper.

The 35-minute interview was hosted by Elizabeth Miller of Healthy Happy Caregiver, who works to help family caregivers integrate caregiving with life. They discussed how caring for her mother, Ruby, resulted in the invention of the Ruby Slipper. "It was a rough journey," said Miles. "I learned that you have to step back and take time for yourself."

Witnessing her mother's struggles to get in and out of a car, Miles saw firsthand the need to help people stay as active as possible to retain mobility. Miles and her mother searched for a product that would help, but couldn't find anything that worked well enough, so she sewed two pieces of slippery nylon together, creating the prototype of the Ruby Slipper. The simple creation gave her mother, who "thought it was really something," more freedom and mobility. Ruby passed in 2008, and it was only upon the urging of a friend that Miles decided to try to manufacture and sell the Ruby Slipper.

"I thought maybe I had something that could help people," said Miles. "If you're making something because you can't find it, I guarantee there are other people out there looking for the same solution."

In addition to the Happy Healthy Caregiver podcast, Miles has been interviewed on television and recently appeared on WOCA 96.3 FM radio's AM Ocala Live show. In a 20-minute segment on inventions, she explained, "My goal is to help people get back out and live the life they should be living."

Miles is available for both print and broadcast interviews. She is a thoughtful, clear, relatable and positive speaker who enjoys sharing her story and letting more people know how the Ruby Slipper Car Seat Cover can improve lives.

Unique Car Seat Cover Helps Patients Recover from Loss of Mobility

TOWSON, Md. -- Katherine Miles, creator of the Ruby Slipper Car Seat Cover, explained why this simple device is a surprisingly effective part of a continuum of care for persons who have suffered a loss of mobility.

"People lose mobility for many reasons, sometimes quite suddenly: surgery, age-related loss of strength or balance, illness or injury," Miles said. "Whatever the cause, restoring mobility can be a difficult and frustrating process. But the Ruby Slipper can help."

Recovery from illness, injury or surgery often requires traveling to physical therapy and medical facilities. Unfortunately, if entering and exiting a car is too much of a challenge, the patient can become discouraged from attempting to finish a prescribed course of exercise, tests and exams. The inability to access transportation then becomes an insurmountable barrier to recovery.

The Ruby Slipper Car Seat Cover, while a deceptively simple device, can allow a patient to continue a course of rehabilitation and keep working toward regaining mobility. The Ruby Slipper is a two-layer nylon seat cover that creates a unique sliding action, allowing an individual to pivot smoothly into and out of a car seat.

The Ruby Slipper is easily installed in minutes. The user or caregiver rotates the top layer of nylon fabric over the seating area toward the door to hang over the side of the seat. Then, the user sits on the fabric, swivels into the car to place his or her feet on the floor, and slides back into the seat. (If help is needed, a caregiver can grasp the individual's legs and rotate them into the car.)

For people who are rehabilitating and may require mobility assistance for only a limited period of time, the Ruby Slipper has the advantage of being inexpensive, easy to use and easily stored when not needed. It fits virtually all passenger cars and trucks, works on both cloth and leather seats, and can be moved from car to car as needed. The nylon fabric is rugged, comfortable and easy to care for.

In addition to patients who are rehabilitating and individuals who have longer-term mobility loss, Miles noted that the Ruby Slipper can also be used by caregivers, physicians, occupational therapists, physical therapists and Veterans Administration professionals.

Car Seat Mobility Device Born of Necessity

TOWSON, Md. -- Katherine Miles, creator of the Ruby Slipper Car Seat Cover, shares that for this product, which allows persons with limited mobility to enter and exit a car with ease, necessity was truly the mother of invention. Miles was faced with a common dilemma: how to help her aging parent stay active and living a full life.

Miles' mother-named Ruby-was a busy senior and always on the go, volunteering at a local hospital and other community organizations and enjoying shopping and eating out. She had no trouble getting in and out of the car, until injuries and other health conditions cropped up. Due to her lack of upper and lower body strength, and even with her daughter's help, Ruby struggled to enter and exit vehicles. She feared she might never get back to her active and fulfilling life.

Miles hated the thought of no longer being able to take her mother for errands, appointments and drives. Reducing the friction between her mother's clothes and the car seat, Miles quickly realized, would make it vastly easier for her mother to slide herself into the seat-or for a caregiver to do so.

She devised the Ruby Slipper, a deceptively simple product that is both affordable and easy to use. This two-layer nylon seat cover creates a unique sliding action that allows an individual to pivot smoothly into a comfortable sitting position.

"It was no longer difficult to get my mother into the car safely," said Miles, "and it did not take super powers to do!" Quickly realizing that this "swivel car seat" could help lots of other people, too, she patented her design in 2014.

Now, anyone with limited mobility, whether temporary or permanent, can find greater freedom with the Ruby Slipper, including those who are elderly, injured, disabled, recovering from surgery or experiencing upper or lower body muscle weakness. Miles noted that the market for the Ruby Slipper also includes caregivers, physicians, occupational therapists, physical therapists and Veterans Administration professionals.

To use the Ruby Slipper, the top layer of nylon fabric is rotated over the seating area toward the door to hang over the side of the seat. Then, the individual sits on the fabric, swivels into the car to place his or her feet on the floor, and slides back into the seat. (If help is needed, a caregiver can grasp the individual's legs and rotate them into the car.)

Lightweight and simple to install, the Ruby Slipper can be moved from car to car as needed. The Ruby Slipper fits virtually all passenger cars and trucks and works on both cloth and leather seats. The nylon fabric (red, black or gray) is rugged, comfortable and easy to care for.

The Ruby Slipper Car Seat Cover Increases Freedom and Mobility for Many

TOWSON, Md. -- Ruby Slipper, LLC, announces that the Ruby Slipper Car Seat Cover, a deceptively simple product that grew out of a common frustration, has become a comfortable and affordable solution to a problem faced by many persons with limited mobility: the inability to enter and exit a car. The Ruby Slipper re-opens the door to more freedom and mobility.

While most people take getting into a vehicle for granted, being unable to do that can severely limit the quality of a person's life. For individuals whose mobility is limited by age, injury, disability, recent surgery or weakness, getting in and out of a car easily can pose an insurmountable challenge. Many people with limited mobility are deeply saddened by the thought of giving up a lifetime of independence. And for others who are rehabilitating from an injury or surgery, difficulty getting in and out of a car can pose a roadblock to recovery.

Ruby Slipper Developed Out of Necessity

Ruby Slipper creator Katherine Miles developed this mobility device in response to her own mother's lack of upper and lower body strength due to injuries and other health conditions. Miles' mother-Ruby, of course-was no longer able to push herself back in to sit in Miles' passenger seat. "My problem was I did not have the strength to get her back into the seat either," said Miles.

Facing the prospect of no longer being able to take her mother for errands, appointments and drives, Miles got to work. The solution she arrived at is a fabric seat cover that fits virtually all passenger cars and trucks and works on both cloth and leather seats. The Ruby Slipper's heavy-duty double layer of cloth over the seating area creates a unique sliding action that allows an individual to pivot smoothly into a comfortable sitting position.

Explained Miles, "It was no longer difficult to get my mother into the car safely, and did not take super powers to do! I thought this was a type of 'swivel car seat for seniors' that other people with aging parents could appreciate, too."

Ruby Slipper Offers Fast Installation, Simple Use

The installation of the Ruby Slipper is quick and easy. Once placed into position on the car seat, the Ruby Slipper can be strapped securely into place in moments. To use the Ruby Slipper, the top layer of nylon fabric is rotated over the seating area toward the door to hang over the side of the seat.

Then, it's just sit, turn and slide. The individual sits on the edge of the car seat, and because the two pieces of fabric slide over one another, swivels into the car to place his or her feet on the floor. (If help is needed, a caregiver can grasp the individual's legs and rotate them into the car.) Once facing forward, the individual can slide back in the seat and buckle the seatbelt. These steps are done in reverse to exit the car.

Because it's so lightweight and simple to install, the Ruby Slipper can be moved from car to car as needed. The rugged nylon fabric, straps and buckles are built to last. The nylon fabric is comfortable and doesn't grow too hot when in use, as other makeshift solutions can. Easy to care for, the Ruby Slipper can be cleaned by using a damp cloth or by hand-washing. It's available in original red, as well as black and gray to coordinate with most vehicle upholstery.

Many Individuals Benefit from the Ruby Slipper

Anyone who has limited mobility, whether temporary or permanent, can find greater freedom thanks to the Ruby Slipper. This includes those who are:
* elderly
* injured
* disabled
* recovering from surgery
* experiencing upper or lower body muscle weakness

Those who care for individuals with limited mobility may wish to purchase or recommend the Ruby Slipper-especially in cases where the individual is reluctant to admit he or she needs help:
* caregivers
* physicians
* Veterans Administration professionals
* occupational therapists
* physical therapists
