I was rear-ended by a large vehicle and trailer, causing injuries to my back and hips. Even 17 months later, I still have days where it is hard to stand for more than a couple minutes. I am also obese. This is rated for more than I weigh, and it has held up great. I've been using it since early June 2014. It's strong, comfortable, and more than wide enough to sit on. It's been a big help.
I can't give a personal review on this item because I never received this chair. I did, however, receive one with handles and a back. I contacted customer service but I don't think they understood what I was writing about. The one that was sent had mfg. defects so no point in sending it back plus it was an item I don't see in overstock. I can say, my sister has this item and for what I see there I give it a 5 STAR rating. They are heavy duty and just as described. Well priced also.
The bench was exactly what Mom expected so she could sit to wash her hair in the shower. Dad started using it too, to sit and wash his feet, likely because he recently lost his balance trying to do so without any support (he is 90). I would actually rate this product between Good and Excellent, but the scale doesn't allow it,. Only because it doesn't fit perfectly (and back far enough) due to the slant of the tub (common design) and it took some fussing to get it reasonably secure where Mom wanted it, but I could only use 3 of the 4 braces. Maybe it was me, but it seems that the bench would work better with squared-off tub (OUCH!!).
I had surgery today on my leg. I cannot sit in s tub or stand in a shower. I was using a step stool w/ a hand towel on the top step. Due to saving money, I also was risking reinjurong myself as the step stool slid. I ordered this shower chair as I was dirprised by the low price. I have not used it yet. My spouse put it together Rather quickly. It had thick suction feet nearly the same size as the end of my crutches. I ordered this on on Sunday or Saturday. It arrived The following week on Tuesday. I cannot try it until Friday as I need time to gather my head from anesthesia. I had surgery today. My mind is at ease due to the quick delivery. Thanks for shipping quickly. Will change my rating once I use the chair.
