I purchased this for my father who walks with aid from a rollator and has a lot of mobility issues, especially getting up/down. We needed a solid, strong and usable chair for his dressing area that he could easily sit and stand from. The higher seat (about 21-22 inches from the floor) allows for an easier sit from standing position. The chair is comfortable, and the swivel lever is easy to use to help turn from side to side to get things without leaning dangerously. The arms are nice and sturdy. This is perfect for him. It will really help to minimize falls in his bedroom. Thank you for making such a product!
