Drive Medical “Duet” is a Transport Chair AND Rollator Combined Into ONE Device

Egan Medical Unveils New Dual-Purpose Mobility Device

Is it a wheelchair? Is it a rollator? Those are some of the questions being asked about the all-new dual-purpose mobility device from Drive Medical.

Officially, the product is known as a rollator/transport chairSimply put, it is a two-in-one device that easily converts back and forth between a wheelchair and a rollator depending upon the user’s needs.

Of course, most people still don’t know what a rollator is. So what exactly is a rollator, you ask?

A rollator is like a type of walker, only it has a number of features not included on a standard walker.  Some of these include:

  1. Four large wheels
  2. Locking “loop” brakes (essentially hand-brakes)
  3. A seat (sometimes padded, sometimes plastic)
  4. A storage compartment (typically either a basket or a pouch, usually located underneath the seat)
  5. A padded backrest located behind the seat

A transport wheelchair is different from other types of wheelchairs including both manual wheelchairs and power wheelchairs. The primary difference between a transport chair and a regular wheelchair is that a transport chair does not have large rear wheels which on a manual wheelchair are spun by the user to propel the chair forward.

A transport chair has four small wheels, and is intended to be pushed from behind by someone other than the person sitting in the chair.

The two-in-one rollator/transport chair easily converts back-and-forth from one mode to the other. All that needs to be done to shift from wheelchair mode to rollator mode and back is to reverse the backrest and flip up (or down, depending upon which mode it is in and which is desired) the rollator handles (the ones with brakes attached).

Rollators normally cost anywhere from $120-$180 retail.  Transport wheelchairs typically sell for around $150-$250 depending upon the model, brand and quality.

The Drive Medical Duet Transport Chair/Rollator has an MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) of $330.40. At that price, a consumer could buy one of the multi-purpose devices for less than it would cost to purchase both a rollator and transport wheelchair separately.

However, with the Christmas shopping season upon us, there are deals to be had for this versatile new product. A medical equipment company called Egan Medical is currently offering the Duet for as little as $189.95 — a savings of more than $145 dollars.

The item is available in three different colors: Blue, Black and Burgundy.

Those intending to purchase the Duet should do so now. Supplies are limited, and the $145 savings won’t be around forever.

V2 Supporter for Vulvar Varicosities

V2 Supporter

Available at: Egan Medical

V2 SupporterThe V2 Supporter is a maternity support undergarment specifically designed to treat vulvar varicosities by way of delivering targeted compression therapy to the affected area. Vulvar varicosities is often referred to as that feeling that “everything is going to fall out the bottom”. While not uncommon during pregnancy, the condition seems to occur primarily if not exclusively in women who are pregnant.

Vulvar Varicosities

Manufacturer: It’s You Babe, LLC (maker of the patented Prenatal Cradle)

The V2 Supporter is also indicated for the following conditions:

– Vulvar Varicosities
– Swelling or Edema of the Pubic Region
– External Prolapse of the Bladder or Uterus
– Perineal Edema
– Incontinence
– Following Sclerotherapy

Instructions for Wear: Step into the V2 Supporter as you would a regular panty, with the lace applique on the front-and-center of hip band. Customizable compression means that each individual user can customize the degree of firmness to fit her specific needs. To do so, simply loosen the back tabs and relocate the tabs higher or lower on the garment relative to their previous position to raise or lower the compression.

Vulvar Varicosities is a condition whereby varicose veins develop in and around the pelvic region during pregnancy. This is a fairly common condition, and it is generally not considered to be serious, usually disappearing once the pregnancy is completed.

EGAN Medical Supply Expands to Mississippi Coast

Medical Supply Company to Open E-Commerce Fulfillment Center Near MS Beach

EGAN Medical Supply, a Louisiana-based provider of quality medical supplies, equipment, supplements, orthopedic and maternity care products has announced the grand opening of a new location in Long Beach, Mississippi.

While not a conventional walk-in, brick-and-mortar storefront like EGAN’s Covington, LA based medical supply store, the new location will help better serve the organization’s loyal customer base by designating an entire facility to order processing and shipping of products purchased online by customers across the United States and Canada.

The Long Beach location will not be open to walk-ins, and customers are not encouraged to visit the facility in hopes of going shopping. The store in Covington will continue to accommodate walk-ins, however the Mississippi location is strictly intended to enhance the company’s online campaign by providing a dedicated facility and staff whose responsibilities will center entirely around the fulfillment of orders placed via the company’s website, and of course inventory storage and management.

The move is intended to improve the efficiency of the company’s operations by separating the brick-and-mortar side of the business from the online/e-commerce side. Each respective location will maintain its own separate inventory. One will exist strictly to serve the needs of walk-in customers and patients who require medical equipment and/or supplies immediately, whereas the other exists solely to ensure prompt and timely fulfillment of orders placed over the internet by customers from all across North America.

An EGAN spokesman issued a statement assuring the firm’s Louisiana customer base that the new location is not part of a plan to close the Covington, LA storefront, and that the store will remain open to walk-in traffic for the foreseeable future.

However, the company did leave open the possibility that the new facility could eventually house and ship merchandise for yet-to-be-formed online retail companies, with the probability that any such companies that are eventually created will be far more niche-oriented than EGAN Medical, specializing in singular product lines such as maternity supports and mobility equipment.
