Medical Equipment 

Durable medical equipment is a term that covers a diverse range of apparatus that has been designed to assist patients suffering from illnesses or injuries which restrict their normal mobility and function, and can help people to lead much more normal lives without such a heavy reliance on help from family and care givers.   

There are many different types of durable medical equipment available from simple tools such as ramps that can assist wheelchairs users to access steps and vehicles through to highly specialist devices such as hearing aids and breathing apparatus, and many of these can significantly improve the quality of life for patients and offer them ways in which they can be more mobile and independent.
