We use this item everyday in caring for our relative who has Alzheimers. While it is not top of the line quality it does have its usefulness & serves it purpose. However - unless you have a masters degree in enginering be prepared to be driven crazy by the 'how-to' instructions ... the diagram and lack of instructions is utter nonsense.
Even though I am ambulatory I have started having dreams that result in my falling out of bed. I LIKE IT BECAUSE: 1. It works! No more concern with falling out of bed. 2. It is of very solid construction. 3. It makes me feel safe. 4. It folds down and is not visible during the day. I DO NOT LIKE IT BECAUSE: 1. The Base Tubes ends stick up so far that I sit on them and hurt myself when getting in or out of bed. It would be nice if there was a smooth "shelf" spanning between them. If such a shelf was an optional accessory I would gladly pay extra for it. 2. I have to get up in the night to use the bathroom. Once the rail is locked upright I cannot reach/maneuver to unlock it to fold down when I need to get up in the night. Any suggestions?
