Equipment Rentals: Are They Right for You?


Accidents happen and surgeries are required, but we always tend to think that these things will never happen to us or our loved ones. What happens when they do, however?

Many of us find ourselves turning to our bank accounts to purchase a walker, wheel chair or even a hospital bed. For some, these purchases are unexpected and unplanned for, making the buying decision a difficult one, as you would like to purchase the best quality items for yourself or your family, but are unable to do so. Did you know that there is another option that is available?


Renting equipment for personal use is an easy way to provide yourself and others with quality equipment at an affordable price. Many people tend to turn away from renting equipment, but it is becoming more and more popular as customers realize the benefits that come with it.

Hospital Beds

Are you looking to recover from an accident or surgery in your own home? Hospital bed rentals are easy to coordinate, as trusted professionals will deliver and install beds in your home, free of charge. Rented on a month to month basis or rent-to-own, hospital beds are inspected and sanitized before they ever enter your home. The last thing you need is unwanted guests!


Walkers are much easier to purchase, unlike hospital beds, but that doesn’t mean that you should dismiss renting a walker, altogether! There are a variety of walkers that you can rent, depending on your specific needs. Whether you are renting week to week, or are renting to own, you can utilize walkers to help cope with many injuries. As soon as you are able to walk properly, you can return the walker and end the rental period.


Broken ankles and sprains are two of the most common injuries, making crutches for both children and adults a common household object. Bones will heal and bruising will disappear, so don’t find a home for your crutches in the back of your closet or in the basement. Rental crutches can be used until you have gained full mobility, and can then be returned; saving you both money and storage space.

Manual Chairs

Manual chairs (wheel chairs) are required outside of hospital use, but can be difficult to purchase if it is not needed for a long period of time. There are many types of manual chairs to choose from, depending on the injury, but do you know that there are several rental options? Rental periods can consist of a couple of weeks to a couple of months. If you find yourself looking for a manual chair, renting equipment is a great alternative.

You never know when you may need to make use of equipment such as walkers and hospital beds, but you have several options available to you. Whether you are looking to buy or rent, we can answer all of your questions.

I didn’t know that you could rent a wheelchair! I broke my leg a year ago and we still have a wheel chair from it that we no longer need. I would have gone with a wheelchair rental instead if I had known about them at the time.

Thanks for this article, was unaware you could rent these devices. Do you recommend the product brands to rent yourself? or is that up to us?
