Britt’s Guide to Choosing Durable Medical Equipment (DME)

  • Look for a company that is established and has an AT Professional on staff.
  • Beware of sit-and-go type chairs that can’t be changed to fit your needs.
  • Make sure the vendor from whom you buy also repairs.
  • The delivery person should be same person that did the fitting.
  • Make use of “word-of-mouth” recommendations.
