We could not drill into our marble shower walls for risk of cracking. This pole was suggested as an option for my husband who needs assistance transferring from wheelchair to sliding shower bench. We ordered it and could not be happier. It is the help we needed to keep him safe!
Roberta, my wife, has Parkinsons and moves slowly with a lot of stiffness. We put up bars in all three bathrooms, but needed the security poles also to help her get in and out of the shower or walk-in bathtub. We have not had them installed very long, but they are working well.
I bought the security pole for my wife, who has Parkinsons Disease. (I actually bought and installed two of them.)I am really pleased with it (them). It was easy to install and is very sturdy. My wife has problems with falling and I have/had to watch her very closely when she stands. The stander pole lets her stand by herself and get her balance when moving to her wheelchair from the bed or toilet. Some of the other things we tried were either not stable enough or were kind of complicated to set up. The pole makes my wife feel more comfortable and stable. For me, I feel a little less worried about her when she stands up. Yes, I would definitely recommend this product to others who need support standing.
