4/5 Ease of Use
4/5 Meets Expectations
Reviewer: william g. from montgomery, tx (caregiver)
User Details: MS - Secondary Primary Progressive female. Can no longer walk or use hands/arms very well (tremors). Must be fed meals.
Strengths: Strength, Flexibility(top turns 360), appearance
Weaknesses: Table doesn't need magazine rack (too difficult for patient to move table to get to it and most lift chairs have their own pockets on the side for books).
Also, I had to pull the whole stand forward so it sticks out about 6 inches in front of the chair (I love tripping on this...NOT!) in order to have the table sit correctly in front of my patient without cutting her in the stomach. She is only 130 lbs so I don't know how anyone this weight or more could use this product and have the table sit correctly in front of them (e.g., to eat off of)and have the bottom of the stand in the place shown in the diagram. To accomplish this the vertical rod just under the table top would have to be modified to have a jag in it to take the table further from the patient while leaving the stand base under the chair as intended. My jag can be described as follows:
Draw a 1" vertical straight line, at the top of that line draw a 1" to the right, now at the right side of that line draw a 1" line straight up. You'd probably need the jag to be 6-8" to have a really GREAT product.
