Equipment and Supplies
Please select from the menu below to find out more information about what equipment is offered.
- Oxygen Concentrators and Portable Tanks - For patients who need oxygen, we have a wide variety of options to fit individual needs. Powered by electricity, oxygen concentrators can be wheeled to any room in the home. They require a backup oxygen source in case of electrical power failure and a portable unit for leaving the home. Portable concentrators are a good alternative for active patients and are accepted by most airlines. They are lightweight and quiet, and can run on a chargeable battery unit and an AC adaptor.
- Nebulizers, Aerosols and Supplies - These machines provide the lungs with medication that opens narrowed airways, breaks up mucus and aids in expectoration, easing the work of breathing. Small, about lunch box size, these units are designed for home use. These are a great option for small children who do not use the metered-dose inhalers. Nebulizers normally require AC power and although portable, they are not the ideal travel choice.
- Tracheostomy and Suction Kits - Tracheostomy and suction kits are available in various sizes and models.
- CPAP and BiPAP for Sleep Apnea - CPAP is an air generator used in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. The CPAP unit sends a steady stream of air at a present pressure into a nasal mask worn over the nose and/or mouth. BiPaP is an air generator that provides two levels of pressure. It works the same as a CPAP but allows the user to exhale at a lower pressure. A BiPAP is generally for people who find it difficult to adjust to the constant pressure of a CPAP.

- Advanced Pumps and Bags - Enteral feeding involves delivering nutrition into the digestive system in the form of a liquid. Drinking nutrition beverages or formulas and tube feeding are forms of enteral nutrition.

Tube feeding can be used to add to what a person is able to eat or can be the only source of nutrition. Enteral tube feedings are administered in a continuous or intermittent basis. A wide variety of pumps, bags and tubing is available.

- Wheelchairs - With weights starting at 35 pounds, a standard weight wheelchair is the choice for those who will use a wheelchair less than 4 hours per day, but need it to be self-propelled. A full selection is available - from the most basic models with fixed leg rests and armrests to wheelchairs that have elevating leg rests and removable armrests. The average weight capacity is 250 pounds. Physical considerations include posture, strength, sensation, visual acuity and perception, and the ability to learn how to use the chair safely. Various models are available to accommodate individual needs.
- Wheelchair Cushions - Because proper stiffness, density and resilience help ensure adequate support and an effective lifespan, a wide variety of cushions is available. Foam is light and varies widely in stiffness and density. Gel wheelchair cushions are heavier than foams and, therefore, are often used in combination with foams. These materials are good at minimizing heat and are typically encased by a protective cover that can be easily cleaned.
- Walkers, Canes, and Crutches - Lightweight, foldable, adjustable height, raised H frame, cushion hand grips - walkers offer safety and confidence to perform daily living tasks. Canes are lightweight, durable and made of anodized aluminum, which improves balance and reduces fatigue. Various models are available to accommodate individual needs.

The pad is specially designed to reduce pressures and forces on the patient that can lead to the development of ulcers.
- Alternating and Low-Air-Loss Mattresses - Alternating pressure and low-air-loss technologies are known to be effective in healing and preventing these wounds and make caregiving tasks significantly easier.
