Medical Equipment and Home Modifications in Philadelphia
Since 1973, Marx Medical Equipment has helped people in Philadelphia with medical equipment repairs, rentals and sales.
We take pride in helping anyone in our community and the surrounding area who deal with mobility issues. Whether you need to rent a wheelchair or hospital bed, have stair lifts installed or are shopping for shoes for diabetics, our expert staff in Philadelphia offers insightful support and customer training plus white glove service and installation.
Marx Medical accepts Medicare and Medicaid waivers and assists with paperwork for all our clients in Pennsylvania. We welcome customers from outside the state, though you must have private insurance and provide up-front payment.
Philadelphia Hospital Bed Rentals
Many patients take comfort from the idea of being able to recuperate at home. Unfortunately, the beds they have at home aren’t always designed for at-home care, which is why these patients often need to look into hospital bed rentals.
These beds offer safety and support, while still allowing you or your loved ones to get a good night’s rest. Marx Medical has hospital beds for rent and sale, whether you need a fully-electric or semi-electric bed, a heavy-duty bariatric bed, or even a hospital-style bedside table.
Purchase or Rent a Wheelchair in Philadelphia with Marx Medical
For people with mobility issues, choosing a mobility scooter can be life-changing. The right scooter or wheelchair can give you a sense of independence and access that may not have been there before.
Whether you’re looking for a mobility scooter or to simply rent a wheelchair for the day, Marx Medical can help. We carry a range of scooters and power wheelchairs, ranging from lightweight to heavy duty models, as well as standard wheelchairs from trusted brands such as Medline and Quickie.
The Best Stairlifts and Home Modifications in Philadelphia
Installing a stairlift can mean the difference between staying in your home and moving into assisted living, or between turning a downstairs room into a bedroom or retaining full use of your home.
Marx Medical’s home modification solutions include stair lifts and platform lifts, wheelchair ramps, railings, bathroom modifications and affordable home elevators.
Medication Dispensers, Diabetic Shoes and Other Philadelphia Medical Supplies
Marx Medical does more than just make home modifications and provide larger pieces of mobility equipment. We also offer smaller – but no less useful – medical devices, from medication dispensers and medical alert systems to shoes for diabetics, diabetic inserts, braces and adult diapers.
