- The Cando Wedge has proven to be very helpful for posture in the classroom and allows for my students to move in their seats.
- I bought my first Cando Wedge in desperation about a year ago. I was having terrible hip pain after starting a new job. Had to cling to the stair rails and pull myself up. It was awful. A specialist prescribed physical therapy three times a week - expensive and time consuming.
