Knows How to Install and Service Durable Medical Equipment

Durable medical equipment is not much use if it is installed wrong. Maybe if you are a handy homeowner and have some construction experience you might be able to install it yourself. But you won’t have the years of accumulated knowledge and experience of installing and servicing equipment such as ceiling lift systems or vertical platform lifts and missing one little detail may lead to the equipment being unsafe or to future service problems with the unit. Having experts handle the installation of durable medical equipment also saves a lot of time, getting it up and running a lot faster.

Has Accreditations and Certifications

A lot of durable medical equipment such as the SureHands Body Support Systems, requires specific training and certifications in order to be authorized to sell and service it. This assures that your equipment has been purchased and installed properly.
