We recently published an article on the Connecticut Injury Resource Guide
entitled “Medical Supply Store Tips with Juana Rivera of AWA Medical Supplies.” The medical aids and devices which are sold by these stores can make life so much easier for a seriously injured accident victim and the affected family members in how one can go about their activities of daily life.
Ms. Rivera stated that the most common injuries they see on a daily basis are those involving the knee, wrist, and injuries associated with the back. These injuries create different limitations and restrictions. Some people may require the use of a cane, quad cane, or walker as they have issues involving balance or are unable to stand without assistance.
Other injured parties may require special bracing to assist in moving about while others may require a raised toilet seat, shower chair, transfer bench, and even railing to assist in safely moving about one's living space. There are also seats, cushions, pillows, and specialized bedding that will assist the injured party in helping to reduce their pain and improving their quality of life.
Many people will not be aware of the products, services, and devices which can assist injured parties in helping to make their life easier. Ms. Rivera suggests that you contact someone at a local medical supply store
to get answers to the many questions that family members would have in shopping for products or devices and in determining what types of insurance coverage may be available to them.
Injured parties and their family members might be surprised to learn what type of suggestions and guidance they might obtain from people working at and running medical supply stores. They might also be able to share other resources available through the state or federal government that could assist in making the life of an injured party easier. It is important that an injured party take advantage of these products and services to improve their recovery and to make their lives more comfortable.
