Medical Equipment Section Turns 1!

We are now entering our second year with our medical equipment expansion. Over the course of the last 12 months it has been amazing how all the extra space has allowed us to not only expand the offerings we have had for years, but also offer hundreds of new items and services.

We had rented walkers, crutches, wheelchairs and knee scooters for years, but in the last year we have added transport chairs, rollators, lift chairs, scooters and hospital beds to our rental fleet. We have doubled the space we have for our medical braces and supports, adding walking boots for ankle and foot injuries.

Don’t forget lift chairs – boy do we have lift chairs! We finally have enough space to display all the different models, fabrics and features available. Customers can try out over 20 chairs on our sales floor to find out which one suits their specific needs. The same holds true for our scooter selection. We have 10 models to try out, from a compact folding model up to large 4 wheelers.

Other new lines include Dry Pro cast protectors to allow you to enjoy swimming with just about any size or variety of cast. We have the Smart Caregiver line of patient alarms to let you know if a patient has fallen or left a bed or bedroom. We have a large selection of plantar fasciitis products from braces to the “Foot Gym”. If you haven’t stopped in lately, drop in today and check out all the new stuff!

And don’t forget to put Ozzie’s 3rd annual Health Fair on your calendar! On October 1st from 10 to 2 we will have flu shots, walker tune ups, raffles, demonstrations and our entire line of Golden lift chairs will be on sale! You can also check out our new medical equipment website here
