    As a prior therapist there was what I called “In the Middle of the Room Syndrome” because outside of wall bars on a wall there was nothing to address assistance anywhere else. The Med-Pole, a vertical pole that can be placed anywhere there is a floor and ceiling, makes the most sense for bed safety, bed mobility, bed transfers, independence and safety for a persons home or facility. The fact of writing this comment is to let people know about new devices on the market — if not we are using the same methods from a decade ago. I do represent the Med-Pole company who makes Med-Poles but it the design is out of necessity to help people be safe. Best regards.
