I have had surgery for hydrocephalus which causes you to have poor balance. I have been unable to get in and out of a swimming pool, which I need for my prescribed therapy. I hope that by taking this in the pool with me, I will be able to get in and out safely even though the pool has no railings.
I was looking for a stool for my mom who has a hard time sitting in normal height chairs and also to get up from them. All the stools I looked at in stores were missing one feature or another that would make it not comfortable for my mother. I came across this stool and it looked good enough online so I decided to order it. It was very easy to put together and it is very sturdy. I have no worries that it's going to tip over at all. The handles on the sides are great for helping her push herself up to a standing position. The adjustable feature is the greatest asset. Most stools in stores are 24" to 29" high. These were too tall for my mom. Her hip problem prevents her from standing on her tippy toes to get in a normal height stool. This is just a great, great chair.
We already have a 4 wheel rollator with a seat but my Mom thought it was too big for her to use when traveling. This unit folds easily and works well for her. I have some concerns about the difference in size and stability of the smaller unit, but it is working for a smaller framed woman and fits well in the house.
As a disabled senior was in much need of a new walker. From what I read everything seemed to me in order. Received my walker very quickly, but there was nothing in the discription that said assembly required. Would have never purchased this model had I know it had to be assembled. Now it will cost more to find someone to do the job. When I've purchased other walkers, pulled it out of the box and ready to go....only had to remove plastic wrapping. Also, somewhat afraid of the plastic wheels. My older walker had hard rubber with some tread....this are slick plastic. Will it be a problem sliding on some of the different floor one encounters in different settings? Question will the breaks hold on this kind of wheel?
