Accidents are going to happen. According to the magazine Driver Knowledge, there are 16,348 car crashes per day in the United States. Of those 27% end up with non-fatal injuries. The Centers for Disease Control reports three million older Americans treated in emergency rooms every year for falls. According to National Health Statistics, there are 8.6 million sports-related injuries per year for those 5-24 years old.

We mention all this only to point out that durable medical equipment (DME) stores play a vital role in communities across the country. Most DME’s fill in the gap when you need a piece of equipment on a temporary basis. Affordable Medical Equipment has a whole range of durable medical equipment for rental. We rent on a daily, weekly or monthly rental per your needs.

Without question our number one rented item is the knee scooter. Ditch the crutches! A knee scooter is the perfect solution for mobility after a foot or ankle surgery or injury. A knee scooter allows you to rest one leg on a comfortable pad and propel yourself with your good leg. Handlebars provide stability and steering.  Knee scooters offer comfort, balance, and quickness. They come in a variety of sizes to support juniors up to individuals weighing over 300 pounds.  Fitting and checkout is quick and easy.

One of the best things you can have in the house post-surgery is a comfortable and relaxing lift chair. Our Golden Cambridge 3-position chair provides superior comfort and functionality. The biscuit back design and overstuffed filling provides deep lumbar relief, a most comfortable seat, and a full chase pad. Additionally, the Golden Cambridge comes with Alta™ technology, a fabric that provides a total liquid barrier, is antimicrobial, and easily cleanable. The Cambridge reclines to an easy lounge position for resting or sleeping and lifts the patient up slowly to an almost standing position. We have had countless customers share wonderful stories about how Cambridge made the total difference in their recovery!

If you are older or face mobility challenges, nothing can be more difficult than vacation mobility. Resorts charge an arm and a leg for scooter rentals and trying to transport a rental from your hometown can be difficult and cumbersome. Affordable Medical Equipment has the solutions for vacation mobility. Whether you are just going to visit Main Street or Dollywood; we have the right scooter for you. Everyone’s FAVORITE though is the Golden Go Scooter. The Golden Scooter folds down to 12”, weights a mere 47 pounds, can support up to 300 pounds, and has an amazing 18-mile run distance. “What a scooter! It is sporty and trendy. It is easy to fold in simple steps and I can take it anywhere on my outdoor trips with my family. Now, I am planning more trips than usual. I am so happy!” – Gary N.
