- HEIGHT ADJUSTABLE, TILTING MAST AND TWO WAY TILT surface accommodates any type of bed or chair. Industry exclusive U-shaped base combined with a tiltable mast means the Acrobat can accommodate chairs that other overbed tables are simply unable to integrate with due to the table surface distance from the users seated position.

- INSTITUTIONAL QUALITY with heavy gauge construction. Table top tilts both ways to allow for use from both sides of the bed. 4 easy-roll casters make the Acrobat easy to move while the two braked casters lock the table in position as required.
- ATTRACTIVE, EASY TO CLEAN woodgrain table finish. Surface includes an integrated lip that prevents items from sliding off the table when tilted. PLEASE REVIEW DIMENSIONS CAREFULLY PRIOR TO ORDERING.

I'm disabled and bedridden. The tilt table is perfect for my needs. After my next spinal procedure I expect to be able to draw again. Since my non dominant hand has permanent nerve damage, it's wonderful to have a tilt table be able to hold up my books. My visiting nurse Occupational Therapist showed me the best (most ergonomic) way to utilize the table without putting strain on my cervical and lumbar spine. The tilt table is the perfect size for my various sized drawing books, and the side table (which can also tilt, but I will keep flat) is perfect for my colored pencils, compass, straight edge, eraser, reference materials, etc.
The tilt table will also be a perfect table for me to write music compositions in my notation notebooks. I'll also use it to hold up books I'm currently reading/studying.
My Occupational Therapist said this is the best table she's ever seen at this price point. She said she'll recommend it to her patients in the future (the one she recommended to me seemed cheap and got bad reviews. You get what you pay for. I'm glad I did my own research and found this table.)
The table took my less than 10 minutes to set up and wheel into the bedroom (I'm disabled so I had a relative set it up.) I have permanent nerve damage in my left hand and spinal cord nerve root damage in my cervical spine. Even so, the tilt mechanism is easy enough for me to use, although I will have my caregiver perform any changes to the table so I can save my energy for the uplifting things I mentioned earlier.
The table came with no instructions, but it's such a simple design, it's self explanatory.
The only issue I have is the table moves a bit even with the two wheels locked. This is on a hard wood floor. When I'm physically able to move back into my bedroom this issue will be null because I have a rug. One easy fix for the sliding on the hard wood floor is placing a mat on the floor in front of the wheels.
One thing you should be aware of: you must be lying as close to the edge of the bed as possible to use this tilt table. You can switch from using the table on either side of the bed, no problem. However, the tilt table hovers over the bed; the side table does not reach over the bed.
The plastic piece on the bottom (and top) of the table is the perfect height to keep a book, iPad/tablet, laptop, etc. , from falling off the table. It is not uncomfortable. If you don't care for it, it's easily removed with a screwdriver. If you're using a laptop, I would suggest buying a comfortable wrist rest (to prevent carpal tunnel) and placing that on the bottom of the table. There's plenty of room.
The side table has a lip around the outside of the perimeter of the table that, for example, keeps pens and pencils from rolling off the table onto the floor. This is ingenious!
I am not going to place glasses or cups of water , for example, on the side table. It would be too easy for me to knock the table and cause a spill. Bottled water will be fine. Just use common sense: if the table is being used while in bed, the undercarriage is sideways. Be aware of not putting too much weight on the side table.
Using this table in front of you while sitting in a chair? No problem. Again, use common sense.
The table is easy to store: lower and collapse the table and it will easily fit under a bed, in a closet, or in my case beside the dresser and the wall.
I can't imagine anyone having a problem, but if you do simply reach out to Noel at Platinum Health and you will be treated with the upmost respect.
Would I use this table to hold a TV and DVD player? No. Of course not. It's not meant for that kind of weight.
I'm using the table for artistic and educational pursuits, as mentioned above. I would certainly use the table for dinner and the side table for bottled water, iced tea in a bottle, etc.
This would be perfect for jigsaw puzzles, too.
I cannot say enough about Platinum Health's customer service.
It arrived partially assembled and went together easily. It is very stable and rolls easily on our carpeting, and the locks on the wheels hold securely. It took a little to learn the process, but now we can easily pivot the top between flat and angled. We use it for video calls when we are on the sofa, and he uses it for writing or using the internet to read or watch videos, etc. It is super sturdy.
The split surface is so convenient - it also allows him space for his coffee and mouse while he has the main portion tilted for his laptop. At first he complained about the lip around the smaller portion, but he is used to it now. It is well constructed and a good value.
We've had it almost a year and it still looks and functions like new. I bought this after reading the reviews, and comparing to other options. I am so glad I chose this one. The only issue is that it does not fit under his chair, but I measured and understood it would not before buying. It is still very maneuverable, and with the option to tilt the whole frame,he is able to get around that problem.
I've seen comments about defective pieces, with pictures of said pieces, and can say that if you take the time to read the instructions, those pieces are in no way defective:
- The Slanted pipe joint you see in some photos is a form of clamping mechanism. It comes tightened, and you have to loosen it using the knob at the other end of the pipe before it will fit into the mating tube. then you tighten the knob to lock it firmly in place. a very clever mechanism that is much studeir than other knob-tighten clamp systems I have seen.
- There are two holes in the steel tube with two spring-pins along the mating rod that are meant to fit into them. At first I thought one of the two holes was incorrectly drilled, because it did not line up with the other hole or the two pins, but upon reading the label, it turns out that the parts are just fine. you are only ever meant to use one of the two holes at a time, with the first pin locking into the first hole when the table is in the 90 degree position, and the second pin locking into the second hole when the table is in it's forward slanted position.
I can see how both of these might confuse someone, but they are documented in the instructions, and a purposeful part of the design, which make this table significantly more stable than any other I have used.
