For more than 45 years, Marx Medical Equipment has helped people in the Bridesburg-Kensington Richmond section of Philadelphia who need medical equipment repairs, rentals and sales.
We pride ourselves in helping anyone in the community who lives with mobility issues.

Bridesburg-Kensington-Richmond Hospital Bed Rentals
When you’re recovering for surgery, there’s something comforting about the notion of being able to recuperate at home. Unfortunately, the beds we have in our homes aren’t always designed for at home care, which is why hospital bed rentals are so useful.
Our hospital beds provide safety and support, but still let you or your loved ones get a good night’s sleep. Marx Medical has hospital beds for rent and sale, with a product line that ranges from fully-electric or semi-electric beds to heavy-duty bariatric beds, as well as hospital-style bedside tables.

Medication Dispensers, Diabetic Shoes and Other Bridesburg-Kensington-Richmond Medical Supplies

This section of Philadelphia is situated northeast of Center City, and is made up of several neighborhoods, including Bridesburg, Fishtown, Kensington, Port Richmond and Harrowgate. Collectively, it is sometimes known as the River Wards. While Fishtown and Kensington are sometimes considered part of the “near northeast,” Bridesburg, Port Richmond and Harrowgate venture into the “far northeast” section of Philadelphia. Thankfully, none of them are very far from Philadelphia attractions and are accessibly for residents and visitors with mobility issues.
Services for seniors in this part of the city include the Port Richmond Senior Center, a volunteer-run operation that offers social activities such as bingo, ballroom dancing, arts and crafts, movies and trips.
There’s also St. Anne’s Senior Community Center, part of Catholic Health Care Services, offering programs that address food insecurity, health and wellness and social isolation.
