Offering peace of mind where you need it most at Home

Ambulatory aids are devices used to assist in functional independent ambulation (walking). These devices range from very basic items like a cane to a four-wheeled walker. Walkers and ambulatory aids are height adjustable and can be fitted to your body. Most walkers and ambulatory aids are made from lightweight materials to reduce user fatigue.

 

Aids to Daily Living (ADL) items are used to help people perform their daily tasks, such as eating, bathing, toileting, reaching, and holding a book. By using these devices, you can independently function in your own home. You can use ADLs whether your functioning is low or high, with or without a caregiver.

When you or a loved one experiences troubles using the bathroom facilities, help is available from Independent Life Medical Supply. We offer you a wide range of equipment and supplies to facilitate bathroom safety for seniors, those in rehabilitation, and others. Fortunately, optimizing bath safety can be relatively inexpensive, and it can help keep you or a loved one at home and/or prevent or eliminate the need for expensive remodeling.

If your doctor has prescribed a home hospital bed, you probably need it for proper positioning during sleep and bed rest. The most common diagnoses for a hospital bed are congestive heart failure (CHF), Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), reflux, Obstructive Sleep Apnea, leg fracture, cancer, quadriplegia, various neurological diseases and congenital birth disorder/diseases.

Compression stockings, also known as “support hose,” and “pregnancy tights,” are used to control and manage the symptoms of lymphoedema, Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and venous insufficiency.

Compression stockings compress to promote blood flow and/or to prevent back flow of blood in your lower limbs. Support hose also help to support your heart to keep the blood moving properly, while working in conjunction with your leg muscles to increase blood flow.

Diabetic shoes, sometimes referred to as extra depth, therapeutic shoes or Sugar Shoes, are specially designed shoes, or shoe inserts, intended to reduce the risk of skin breakdown in diabetics with co-existing foot disease.

At-home diagnostic tests may provide a patient with valuable information and enable patients to seek medical intervention earlier, preventing further medical complications.

Enteral nutrition, also known as tube feeding is another method of nutritional therapy and should be used in patients who cannot meet their nutrient requirements by oral intake, yet have a functional gastrointestinal tract.

The process of tube feeding involves having a small tube inserted directly into your stomach or intestines. This may be done through your nose, mouth or through a small hole made in your abdomen.

Incontinence supplies assist you in managing your involuntary bowel and bladder functions. These products include adult tape tab diapers/briefs, adult pull-ups, pads and under pads/chux. Only Medicaid allows funding for incontinence supplies with strict coverage guidelines with diagnosis requirements and quantity limits.

Orthopedic

Orthopedic equipment refers to a variety of structural devices designed to stabilize, protect, and/or correct orthopedic disorders. Many of these devices are available as over-the-counter products that can be purchased wherever medical supplies are sold. Examples include arm slings and generic back braces. Other kinds of orthopedic equipment have to be ordered by an orthopedic physician. In fact, some devices may need to be custom made for an individual to ensure proper fit.

Pain Management

Pain Management employs diverse physical techniques such as thermal agents and electrotherapy, as well as therapeutic exercise and behavioral therapy, alone or in tandem with interventional techniques and conventional pharmacotherapy to treat pain, usually as part of an interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary program.

 

 

Protective Wear

The protection of healthcare personnel from infectious disease exposures in the workplace requires a combination of controls, one of which is the use of PPE. It is important to recognize that your protection as a healthcare worker also involves other prevention strategies.

 

 

 

 

 

Wound Care

Wound care is used for the treatment and promotion of healing for pressure sores, also known as “bed sores.” Pressure sores can occur from lack of position changes while sitting or lying down for long periods of time. Wound care products will assist in the healing process and help reduce pressure sores / bed sores.

Urological Supplies

Urological supplies are used to manage urinary/bladder functions, whether they are controlled or uncontrolled. These supplies provide you the security and confidence to manage your personal care independently.
