Durable Medical Equipment: My parents need WHAT? Where would I go to get THAT?

Baby Boomers are retiring at an increasing rate. In 2011, the first generation of Baby Boomers turned 65. Their average life expectancy is 83 years old [source: Harvard School of Public Health].
As the boomers age, they will experience more medical problems. Yet, they will want to remain independent and live in their homes longer. As a result, their care and well-being will be managed by family members. Taking them to doctor appointments may become a regular routine.
During one of these appointments, the doctor says, "Your dad has arthritis in the knees and will need a rollator to help him get around."
Your response might be, "My dad needs WHAT? Where would I get THAT?"
For starters, a rollator is a piece of durable medical equipment, also referred to as DME. Durable medical equipment is a non-disposable piece of medical equipment used in the home to help improve one's quality of life. DME is also a benefit provided by most insurance companies.
Home medical equipment classified as DME includes: CPAP, catheters, wheelchairs, medical beds, oxygen tanks and Diabetes testing supplies.
Consumable medical supplies are described as non-durable medical supplies. They tend to be disposable and cannot withstand repeated use.
Both durable medical equipment and consumable medical supplies can be purchased at a local medical equipment and supplies store.
In southeastern Wisconsin, Miller Mobility Products is a leading medical equipment, supply and mobility store. Miller Mobility Products has two stores conveniently located in Waukesha and Mequon to handle the needs for the Milwaukee and Madison areas. With two showroom floors, you can test out the home medical equipment, so you know exactly what you are buying.
Whether you are looking to buy used or new durable medical equipment, Miller Mobility Products' knowledgeable staff will listen to your needs and recommend budget-friendly products and services that are right for you.
While many people think it's easier to buy used home medical equipment, you might want to think twice. Used DME might be cheaper in the beginning, but what happens when the product needs repair? Chances are you will not have a warranty and you will need to pay for the repairs out-of-pocket. It could cost you hundreds of dollars to repair your durable medical equipment. And you could end up spending more money than if you purchased new DME.
However, if you buy a new piece of home medical equipment with a full warranty, all the repairs will be covered. You will not have to pay any out-of-pocket expenses. Spending more money up-front will save you more in the long run.
Remember, no matter who needs durable medical equipment or home medical supplies, Miller Mobility is here to serve you.
