What are home medical supplies and devices? Home medical supplies and devices is a category of equipment used for patients whose care is being managed from a home or other private facility managed by a nonprofessional caregiver or family member. It is often referred to as “durable” medical equipment (DME) as it is intended to withstand repeated use by non-professionals or the patient, and is appropriate for use in the home.
What are some examples of home medical supplies and devices? Walkers, canes, wheel chairs & accessories, compression hosiery, bath safety items, diabetic socks, nebeulizers, blood pressure and glucose monitors, orthopedic supports and braces are all considered home medical supplies and devices.
What is a Blood Glucose Monitor? This is a test system, for use at home, to measure the amount of sugar (glucose) in your blood. Read more about Blood Glucose Monitoring Devices on the FDA website.
What is a Blood Pressure Monitor? The American Heart Association recommends “home monitoring for all people with high blood pressure to help the healthcare provider determine whether treatments are working. Home monitoring is not a substitute for regular visits to your physician. If you have been prescribed medication to lower your blood pressure, don’t stop taking your medication without consulting your doctor, even if your blood pressure readings are in the normal range during home monitoring.” Read more on “How to Monitor and Record Your Blood Pressure” on the American Heart Association website.
What are Diabetic socks? Diabetic socks are used by people with diabetes. Often, diabetic socks are designed without seams in order to reduce the chance of blistering. In addition, diabetic socks may also be designed to control moisture in order to reduce risk of fungal infection or with cushioning to prevent foot ulcers. Good skin care and foot care is essential. The ideal socks for people with diabetes will have the following features: non-elasticated cuffs, no prominent seams, keep in warmth (especially for winter use), allow feet to breathe and sweat to dry out (especially for summer use).
What are Medical Compression Stockings/Socks? Medical compression stockings or socks provide treatment for a variety of painful or swelling conditions of the feet, ankles and legs. Whether you’re a man or woman, there are many benefits to wearing compression stockings because they gently squeeze your legs to move blood up your legs. This helps prevent leg swelling and, to a lesser extent, blood clots. If you have varicose veins, spider veins, or have just had surgery, your doctor may prescribe compression stockings.
