The Best Home Medical Equipment in 2020

Happy New Year, everyone! 2019 was a great year for easy-to-use home medical equipment products, but 2020 is looking even better.

I’ve compiled a list of some of the best new home medical equipment products for 2020. These products range from brand new items to new additions to existing lines.

Without further ado…

Össur Bracing & Supports

Finding a great line of braces, supports, orthotics, and other healthcare support-aids can be tough.  Our pick for a bracing and support manufacturer for 2019 wasn’t easy, but we ended up choosing a brand with a commitment to quality.

Össur Bracing & Supports is based in Iceland with a large US branch in Orange County, California. In their own words; “Össur focuses its efforts and expertise on helping people to be confident, safe and mobile, regardless of injuries or conditions that could compromise their quality of life.”

Once you see an Össur brace, you’ll be hard-pressed to disagree with that company statement.

Össur braces look and feel like custom supports but cost as much as any other standard brace and support line. Their main support lines focus on braces for knees, ankles, the spine, upper extremities, and hips. Some of Össur’s main lines have some great unique features.

The Formfit line offers compression with support. Rebound braces feature breathable fabric and Össur’s ‘Cooltech’ (fast-cooling) technology. Unloader hip braces use a new design to take heavy weights off bad hips.

Lastly, Össur offers CTi Custom braces for high-end care. CTi Custom braces feature carbon fiber frames and customization options for active users.

UpWalker Lite

The UPWalker upright walker line just got a lot lighter! The new UPWalker Lite weights just 15.5 lbs—down 7.5 lbs from the original UPWalker.

Featuring all the best accessories from the original UPWalker (seat, backrest, cup holder, bag), the UPWalker Lite manages to fit everything in a smaller package.

This upright walker was built to allow those with mobility and posture problems to keep their heads up and walk confidently. Adjusting to fit users from 4’7”-5’10”, this walker is made for almost everyone!

Bemis Independence Series

Bemis is already a household name when it comes to standard toilet accessories. Products from the new Bemis Independence Series should make them a household name in home medical equipment too.

The Bemis Independence Series was designed to be functional and stylish. Bemis’ expertise in toilet seat design has created some of the best-looking toilet risers and supports on the market.

Easy to install, Bemis Independence products will fit seamlessly into any bathroom in your home. The entire line looks and feels great—make sure to check them out in person, as website pictures don’t do these products justice.

Strongback Mobility Wheelchairs and Transport Chairs

Strongback Mobility has been around for a few years now and their products are only getting better.

Wheelchairs designed by Strongback are made for two things; mobility and comfort. The patented Strongback seat features a lumbar support cushion that makes you think all wheelchair backs should be designed like it.

Strongback wheelchairs and transport chairs are also extremely light and easy to travel with. Their wheelchairs weigh in at just under 26 lbs., while the transport chairs come in at under 20 lbs.

Chairs from Strongback also look good. Don’t take my word for it—check ‘em out yourself!

Easy To Use Products

“We make Daily Living Easy.” This tagline should say it all—Easy To Use Products is here to make life a bit easier for anyone with special needs.

Products from Easy To Use include mobility cup holders, mobility phone grips, walker coasters (glides), sock remover/shoehorn combos, door grips and more. Each of these products was designed to be used specifically with mobility aids (walkers, wheelchairs, knee scooters, etc.).

Two items that everyone living in today’s world should consider are the mobility cup holder and the mobility phone grip. Not having to carry a drink and search for your phone are upgrades anyone can get behind.
