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 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."

About the Ruby Slipper Car Seat Cover

The Ruby Slipper is a two-layer nylon seat cover, easily installed in minutes, that creates a unique sliding action that allows an individual to pivot smoothly into and out of a car seat. 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.)

The Ruby Slipper is 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.

The Ruby Slipper can be used by individuals with long- or short-term mobility loss; those who are rehabilitating from illness, injury or surgery; caregivers; physicians, occupational therapists and physical therapists; and Veterans Administration professionals.

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.

Lift & Care Systems Provides Resource Sheet for Massachusetts Caregivers

LAKEVILLE, Mass. -- Lift & Care Systems announces the release of the following Resource Sheet for Massachusetts Caregivers. "We tried to gather the best resources for anyone who has a loved one who has suffered from a disability," says Dave Austin, President of Lift & Care Systems. "This is a traumatizing event and it is understandable that caregivers might not know where to begin when looking for help. This is why we have gathered these resources together in one place."

Applying for Disability Services

There is basic information that will be needed to apply for disability services, no matter what organizations you work with. Here is what you will need:
* Social Security Number/Card
* Medical Records - Any information from doctors, therapists, hospitals, or clinics that might be necessary during the application process.
* Medical Provider Contact Info - The names, addresses, phone and fax numbers for anyone involved in the individual's care.
* Labs and Test Results
* List of Medications - Include the dosage and frequency of use information as well.
* Employment Information - A list of the individual's employers, employment dates, and a listing of job duties for the last 15 years.
* School Evaluations and Records - These school records are critical for any child with special needs because they document the issues that may impact the eligibility and scope of services offered.
* Financial Information

Disability Services Resources

Here are some of the best resources available for Massachusetts residents:
* Massachusetts Office on Disability (MOD)- This is one of the best places to begin your hunt for information. It provides contact information to get questions answered as well as links to various services.
* Mass.gov Disability Benefits page-Offered by the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC), this page guides you through the eligibility determination process.
* DisabilityInfo.org - This page provides links to a variety of basic programs and services for people with Disabilities. Everything from legal advocacy and assistive durable medical equipment to personal care and transportation assistance is covered on this page. This is a fantastic place to begin your research.
* Disability Benefits Center- This page has a free disability evaluation to determine if you qualify for services. This page is geared toward SSDI and SSI eligibility and recommends that you hire a Massachusetts social security disability attorney.
* Massachusetts Disability Resources and Advocacy Organizations- Created by OlmsteadRights.org, an advocacy group formed based on the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision Olmstead v. L.C., this site has a massive list of links to all sorts of disability services, organizations, and information of interest for anyone needing help for someone with a disability.

Caregiver-Specific Resources

Caregivers are impacted just as much as the individual who was disabled, and often need help. There are many local organizations and support groups around that can help. Speaking to your doctors or therapists is a great place to start. Other local resources to check out include churches and religious organizations, libraries, and community services organizations.

But don't overlook global organizations that provide support online such as these:
* The Family Caregiver Alliance - This site offers support for anyone in a family caregiver role regardless of that family member's disability.
* ARCH National Respite Network - This is a group that can help you locate respite care in your area. Everyone needs a break sometimes and this group can help you find respite care you can feel confident in whether you need that care for a disabled child or an elderly parent.
* AARP - This organization is all about helping seniors live their best lives but they also have information and support for caregivers of those seniors.
* VA Caregiver Support - If you are caring for a veteran, some of their needs may be different than those of civilians. VA Caregiver Support can offer help and information specific to caregivers of veterans whether it is navigating the VA system or dealing with service-related health conditions and injuries.
* Well Spouse Association - The Well Spouse Association offers help and support for those who are the caregiver to their spouse. Most of us promise in our wedding vows that we will be there in sickness and in health but wanting to be there and knowing how to help our partners and be their advocate can take practice and support.

"This is just a sampling of the resources available out there for Massachusetts caregivers," says Austin. "Remember that you are not alone in this struggle and that there are others out there who have been through what you are going through and can help."

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.

National Access Corp. Launches Initiative Aimed at Helping the Elderly and Disabled

LANCASTER, Pa. -- National Access Corp. (NAC), an access and mobility provider focused on improving the lives of the physically disabled and elderly population, has launched its "Make it Better" - "One at a Time" initiative, which seeks out deserving individuals needing access or mobility related equipment or home modifications.

"The goal of the initiative is to find individuals or families who may not be able to afford some of the more costly equipment or modifications and to provide them for free or at a reduced cost," stated NAC's operations manager, Tory Buffenmyer. "We understand that some of the costs associated with specialized medical equipment, and especially home modifications, can be rather costly and out of range financially for some families. Our goal is to give back to our communities directly by providing life changing access or mobility solutions for free, or at cost to a handful of individuals."

NAC's slogan "founded on the simple principle of helping others" certainly rings true with this new initiative.

"We got into this space as a result of wanting to improve the lives of those facing access or mobility related issues as a result of a disability or aging. One of our founding partners had a personal experience where a family member became suddenly disabled. After spending several months trying to find help for his family member, he decided there was a need not being met and that something had to be done," said NAC's spokesman Darian Epstein.

"We're providing resources for families and individuals who find themselves needing help and answers to some of life's changes, our goal is to be the first place people turn when the need arises" continued Epstein.

NAC's community outreach director, Shannon Taylor, described the initiative as an experiment. "We're going to try this out with a handful of individuals to see how it goes. Our goal is to document a few cases that really outline the need within our communities, and to then garner support from local businesses wanting to make a difference in the lives of others." Taylor continued, "one thing that really surprised me when I got involved with NAC, was the tremendous need for what we do. For every person you see publicly, living with a disability, there at least ten more in the immediate area that you will never see because they live as shut ins - they lack the access or mobility required to make it out and into society. We're planning on changing that."

National Access Corp. is a Pennsylvania corporation with offices in Lancaster and Philadelphia, operating throughout the mid-Atlantic region. NAC specializes in providing straight forward solutions for access and mobility. Individuals needing anything from a wheelchair ramp or a barrier free shower, to a stairlift or scooter can contact NAC for free in-home consultations.

"We handle several lines of stairlifts, wheelchair platform lifts, in home elevators, scooters and scooter carriers, access ramps etc., and can do most any type of modification to residential or commercial buildings in order to make them accessible," said NAC's Buffenmyer.

To learn more about the initiative individuals should contact NAC at (717) 826-9431, or visit the website: http://www.nationalaccesscorp.com/

Non-Profit Announces New Safety-Reviewed Wheelchair Vehicle Resource

TAMPA, Fla. -- The National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) announced today the debut of an online resource designed to help people with disabilities and their caregivers make informed choices when shopping for a wheelchair accessible vehicle.

http://www.nmeda.com/safetyreviewedvehicles is an online listing of all vehicle conversions that have been reviewed for compliance to applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards by NMEDA's Compliance Review Program engineers. The site contains a comprehensive list of all known vehicle conversion companies and the individual conversions that have been reviewed, including make, model, year and conversion type.

"NMEDA is delighted to be able to offer a free, easy-to-use resource for helping folks make informed choices about the conversions they are considering," said Danny Langfield, NMEDA CEO.

"We are also very excited about the number of companies that have already approached us about getting their conversions posted. We believe the ability to offer the widest possible range of compliant manufacturer products is essential for the success of our mobility dealer members and the satisfaction of the public they serve."

NMEDA's review process is critical, Langfield explained, because the wheelchair vehicle conversion industry is self-certifying, meaning that while companies must certify to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that their conversions are compliant, no proof is required to be submitted.

"For us, a manufacturer's statement is just not sufficient," Langfield stated. "We created this resource to allow companies to submit objective evidence that their conversions are indeed crash-worthy. When you are talking about the safety of an at-risk population like our customers, not to mention the public with whom they share the road, crossing your fingers and 'hoping' a conversion is safe isn't good enough - we want to see the data."

"The message is simple - 'Check the list!'" added NMEDA President Chad Blake of Ability Center. "When shopping for a wheelchair accessible vehicle, safety is definitely not the corner you want to cut."

About NMEDA:

The National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association is a non-profit organization of mobility equipment manufacturers, dealers, driver rehabilitation specialists, and other mobility professionals dedicated to improving the lives of people with disabilities through the use of wheelchair accessible vehicles. NMEDA administers the Quality Assurance Program (QAP), the only nationally recognized accreditation program for the adaptive mobility equipment industry.

‘Better than crutches’ – Medical professionals Create Breakthrough Mobility Technology

NAPLES, Fla. -- Healthcare innovator Dynamo today announced the rollout of Dynamo SportSwings. Designed as a replacement for the common, underarm crutch, it reflects the most advanced, top-to-bottom redesign since the days of the Egyptian pharaohs.

Dr. Michael Swank, orthopedic surgeon and company co-founder, said, "The healthcare industry continues to make extraordinary advances in patient care-with the exception of commonly prescribed crutches, canes and walkers. All that's going to change with SportSwings and other Dynamo science-based solutions to follow."

The company said additional breakthrough devices are in the pipeline; including canes, walking sticks, cuff-based crutches, and walkers. Each reflects the input of several hundred orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists and other medical professionals who, like their colleagues around the globe, have for decades had to deal with notoriously uncomfortable, unsteady and unattractive mobility aids.

Several of these advisors are investors in the company, providing its research advisory board with continuous and valuable technical input.

Dr. Matthew Langenderfer is an orthopedic surgeon, Dynamo investor, and advisory board co-chair. "Everything my colleagues and I do," he said, "is about delivering the best possible outcomes for our patients. Frankly, with most of the mobility device options available to medical professionals, that has for years been a frustrating challenge. It's exciting to put all that behind us with these game-changing, 21st century products."

The new SportSwings crutch replacement features a patented SwingLink Safety System. This is an adjustable, behind-the-back tether that dramatically improves safety and confidence, including virtually 100% of forward slip-outs. The product also features a patented foot-like base that offers unprecedented traction on nearly any surface: snow, mud, grass.

An early SportSwings prototype was used by an individual recovering from knee surgery. She used it while hiking up the Great Wall of China. "No way could I have made it without my SportSwings," she said. "They saved my dream vacation."

About Dynamo:
Founded in 2016, Dynamo is literally reshaping expectations for how 21st century mobility devices should look, feel and perform.

The company, headquartered in Naples, Florida, is the creator of "swing technology." This revolutionary new approach to design and engineering not only ergonomically refines each device component, but also integrates them to work as a single, dynamic unit. This efficiently returns the patient to as close to their natural "swing" walking gate as their condition allows.
