My husband is wheelchair bound and the only table that we had was an over bed table. It was too high and hard to fit under the wheelchair. He was able to get on the couch, but the overbed table was again too high and we had to prop him up to the table, this table slides under the couch and the wheelchair which allows us to push the table up to him instead of propping him up. He looks more comfortable and by adjusting it lower he doesn’t have to lift his arms up to get them on the table. We love it, being able to adjust the height to fit his needs no matter where he sits and the table is sturdy enough for him and another person to eat on.
