Stander pole: Awesome if you like playing Russian roulette

Dancing with death is never a good way to start the day. Your whole day is tainted.

I did not actually nearly die.

I was holding on to the locking curved grab bar that is on the pole by my bed to transfer. I was just getting to my chair when the lock gave out and I flew into the back of my chair.

What is most disturbing about the incident is that the folks who make the Stander pole are so blase about it.

We called to figure out, you know, WTF, and both times they just gave instructions to reset the locks. It worked but for how long? And who's to say next time I won't fall onto the floor and sue their asses? It has happened before.

Also, it was apparently Opposite Day at Stander. The people said clockwise when it should have been countercockwise and vice versa.
