Medical Equipment at Home

As a patient receiving a total hip or knee replacement, you may temporarily require additional medical equipment at home. You will be using these items for a short amount of time. These items may include:

  • walker
  • cane
  • reacher
  • sock aid
  • commode or raised toilet seat
  • long handled shoe horn
  • long handled sponge
  • shower chair or bench

Items are available at stores such as Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Meijer, CVS, etc.
The Walgreens, located in the Physician’s Office Building at Rush Copley has some of the equipment listed above including walkers, canes, hip kits (sock aid, long handled shoe horn, long handled sponge, reacher), commodes, raised toilet seats, shower benches, primapore dressings, etc.

Items like a shower chair, grab bars, and raised toilet seats may be available at hardware stores including Home Depot, Lowes and Menards.

Some civic organizations keep an equipment "closet" and will loan out equipment. Try VFW, American Legion, Knights of Columbus or area churches.

Below is a list of local Durable Medical Equipment providers. This is not a complete list and there may be others located in your area.

Check with your insurance company to see if any of the equipment will be covered. Walkers are typically covered by Medicare and most insurance companies. Unfortunately, other assistive devices are usually not covered
