Giddy-Up Stick Now On-Sale!

Giddy-Up Stick / Getty-Up Stick On-Sale

The one and only Giddy-Up Stick, the uniquely innovative dual-handled walking cane that serves a multitude of different purposes is now on-sale at EGAN Medical and will remain on-sale through the first week of December, according to EGAN Medical spokeswoman Kat Smith.

Giddy-Up StickThe Giddy-Up Stick, which is also frequently known as the Getty-Up Stick (its original name) and the Apollo Cane, a newer attempt at re-branding that hasn’t gone particularly well given the name-recognition of the two aforementioned spellings of Getty/Giddy-Up. While many know not how to spell the name, most at least know how to pronounce it. Apollo Cane, while listed in the official literature as an official name of the medical equipment device, is not the only name on the packaging, as the manufacturer recognized after some time that the brand was already established and that to deviate therefrom wouldn’t be a totally wise decision, especially if the company were to have ceased using two original names altogether.Getty-Up Stick

Essentiallly, the Getty-Up Stick (or Giddy-Up Stick) – whatever you wish to call it – features two handles: one located atop the cane, the other located several inches down the shaft. The purpose of this is to provide more balance than a traditional walking cane would be able to offer, thereby helping those who aren’t as mobile as are most people who require no assistance stand up from a seated position without running anywhere near as great a risk of losing one’s balance as would be the case using a traditional walking cane.

The Giddy-Up Stick also features an LED Flashlight built into the top handle, so the lucky owner of this amazing mobility aide will never have to stumble about in the darkness every again.

Sliding Transfer Bench Now Available at EGAN Medical Equipment

EGAN Medical “Honored” to Help Easter Seals

EGAN Medical Equipment and Supply is pleased to announce the very special debut of a very special product, a medical equipment bath safety device known as the Sliding Transfer Bench, manufactured by Drive Medical.

The bench had been in-stock for a while but had not yet made its way to the website until EGAN got a very important phone call. A lady with Easter Seals called to inquire about a transfer bench for a guest of former New Orleans Saint and ALS would-be victim Steve Gleason. The guest reportedly also suffers from ALS, and Gleason was hosting her stay in New Orleans for the Super Bowl.

Needless to say, we immediately got the product page online for them, and sold it at cost, delivering it within 2 hours free-of-charge.

Sliding Transfer BenchAs for the bench itself, the following are the manufacturer’s product features and technical specs:

Product Features

  • Transfer bench slides left and right along frame for easy entry into and out of tub.
  • Folds flat for transport and storage.
  • Comes standard with removable soap dish.
  • Comes with safety net to catch dropped personal items and prevent bending.
  • Comes with seat belt for added safety.
  • Limited lifetime warranty.

It is an absolute honor and pleasure to be of use to the Easter Seals organization as well as to Mr. Steve Gleason. We look forward to working together with Easter Seals in the future, providing them with supplies at no cost when we are able to do so. A truckload of adult briefs is on the way sometime next week!

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.
