Medical care in hospitals can be very expensive for people with chronic or terminal illnesses, even for those with good medical care. It can also be time-consuming and scary to travel hours to and from the hospital and spend time receiving care in an area far from your home and family.
This is not necessary for some people who can now purchase portable medical devices for use in their own homes and may even be covered by their health insurance.
While home medical devices used to be very expensive to buy and too complex for most consumers, recent advances in medical technology and device design mean that fewer devices are available for home use today.
While the bulky devices required for some treatments have to stay in the hospital day and night, portable devices now allow patients more freedom to take care of their own homes and therefore can improve their quality of life.
Home devices allow them to do part of their care while surrounded by their friends and family and surrounded by the familiar. Most household appliances are specially designed to be durable so they can last several times. This device is also designed to be safe and suitable for use by people who have not received medical treatment.
When a medical provider ships a device to your home, they must first assess whether the environment is suitable for the item and then properly adjust the device to ensure it is in good condition.
