Benefits of REAL 9100

I hurt my back a few years ago and have been in a lot of pain. I have had several surgeries but the pain persists. It's fine when I am sitting but when I stand up or walk, the pain is severe. My son wanted me to get a REAL chair for a couple of years. I was stubborn and did not want it. I did not want to be handicapped. He finally bought one for me and it is wonderful. I used to sit on my couch or at my computer desk all day long. It hurt too much to move around. The REAL chair helps me stand up and sit down when I need to. Most importantly, I can move around my house while sitting in the chair. This lessens the pain. I have even "walked" the chair to our neighbors home who lives close by. It is nice to go out and see other people. My Dr.'s are happy because by walking with the chair I am exercising my legs. Before, it hurt too much to do anything. I wish I had not been stubborn for so long.
