Commonwealth Community Care’s Durable Medical Equipment coordination team works closely with our physical and occupational therapists and with DME vendors.
Commonwealth Community Care has over 20 years of experience managing durable medical equipment (DME) for people with physical disabilities. We understand the enormous importance of wheelchairs and other assistive technology and medical equipment to the health and independence of persons with disabilities. The DME department and rehabilitation specialists on our team work closely to ensure that consumers are able to use and maintain their equipment and assist them in accessing repair services.
Our expertise includes:
- Wheelchairs, including power chairs with sophisticated arrays of assistive technology
- Pressure-alleviating mattresses
- Shower chairs
- Respiratory equipment
- Adaptive equipment and electronic aids to daily living
Equipment evaluations include visits to the consumer’s home and/or other location where equipment will be used. All of our physical and occupational therapists are ATP-certified and have extensive experience in seating and equipment evaluation. Your PT or OT will take the time to ensure a complete and accurate assessment of your needs and make certain that planned equipment will fit the space before referring to a vendor. Therapists also participate in joint evaluations with equipment vendors or other therapists at Seating Clinics in the community.
