The consumer says box says the stands can each hold upto 300 lbs per leg stand. He sat on the edge of the bed and took his leg braces off and folded his legs in the bed and thats when all 4 stand broke through and it tossed him out of bed, he hit his head on the floor. He was approximately 278 lbs at the time of the incident.

His left hand came around and broke the majority of the fall or he would have broken his neck on the bed dresser. He has a cast up to his shoulder and has a brace up to his elbow. He suffered a broken wrist. It doubled in size the next day.

The consumer says he contacted the retailer who put him through to four different insurance company and finally found the company representing the manufacturer.

The insurance company seems uncaring and do not listen. They have been dragging this on for a year. An orthopedic Dr. told him there's a chance he can repair it by cutrting his wrist open and rerouting the nerve. he backed out at the 11th hour.

1 year later with no results from Target or a insurance co. they sent me to resolve this permanent damage left wrist
