This adjustable pole is well suited to my husband, who stands 6'5" and is disabled. We have placed it beside our bed (with the added expertise of a visiting physical therapist). We like it because of the many options for grabing while my husband stands and sits. It is also useful because the curved handles rotate easily by pulling out a large, handy knob. It rotates maybe 30 degrees before it can lock back into place. Very easy to adjust if you are approaching it using a walker, wheelchair, etc. The only issue we had was understanding some of the instructions when it came to assembling it. It is also slightly challenging to get into place because the strength/safety of it depends upon it being plumb or parallell to the wall. It definitely takes two people and a long level is helpful to make sure it is adjusted correctly. Once it is snuggly in place, it is very sturdy and safe. We've been using it for over a month now, and my husband has complete confidence in it. There is no slipping even though there are no screws used in securing it. A rubber pad on the base keeps the wood floor from scratching and assures good friction.
