Durable Medical Equipment (DME)

The term Durable Medical Equipment was created over 45 years ago to address the medical equipment needs of elderly individuals, but overtime has grown to include a wide range of products for all stages of life and abilities.  “Standard Durable Medical Equipment” is a subset of this category, and refers to items such as canes, walkers, and commodes (a longer list of Standard Durable Medical Equipment can be found on the righthand side of this webpage).  These items can be found in all our showrooms and can be taken home on the day of purchase- however if the item is not in stock we would be more than happy to order for you.

Monroe Wheelchair stocks the largest inventory of standard Durable Medical Equipment in New York State, and our showrooms can be found in Rochester, Albany and Syracuse.  For over 75 years, Monroe Wheelchair has dispensed Standard Medical Equipment for generations of families throughout New York State.  Our staff understands that this is not just a cane or a walker, but a new lease on life for you or your loved one.  Our employees are trained to help assess your needs and find the correct product.  Let Monroe Wheelchair help you find the tools not only to adapt, but to help you thrive at home.

As of April 1st, 2018 Monroe Wheelchair has changed our business model regarding Standard Durable Medical Equipment.  Please see the following statement from our President and CEO, Doug Westerdahl or click here

We want to let our customers know that all Monroe Wheelchair retail locations will continue to have the same quality standard durable medical equipment products available in our locations.  This will also give us freedom to add new and exciting items we could not have previously kept in stock, as these items would have not been covered by our insurers. We are very excited about the future of our retail locations, and we will continue to add items to our locations to help create the best lives possible!
