What is DME?

Durable Medical Equipment (DME) addresses the medical equipment needs of individuals.  “Standard Durable Medical Equipment” is a subset of this category, and refers to items such as; canes, walkers, rollators, commodes, bed wedges, bedpans, aids for dressing one's self, urinals, shower chairs, bathroom safety products, grab bars, lift chairs, crutches, patient lifts and slings, hospital beds, overbed tables, transport wheelchairs, and standard wheelchairs.  These items can be found in all our showrooms and can be taken home on the day you visit. However, if the item is not in stock we would be more than happy to order equipment 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, Syracuse, and Albany.  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.

What to Expect

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