When asked about the wheelchair cushions she uses Christina said, "I have tried a lot of different cushions over the years and have found that Supracor's Stimulite cushions are the cushions I will always use. I use my Supracor cushions for everyday use and for sports. I love how lightweight and durable they are. They are also very easy to travel with and clean."
