Choosing the Right Physical Therapy Equipment

The right physical therapy equipment for your practice is a very important decision. With many different manufacturers in several different price ranges, you may feel a bit overwhelmed when it comes time to make a choice.  There are a few things you shouldn’t do, or you may end up paying way too much money for equipment that you don’t really like.  First of all, you should use your local supplier for last minute purchases, but don’t count on them to supply everything in your practice.  This is because you’ll pay more than retail price for the products you really need.  After all, the retailer must pay for the staff salaries and storefront space, while still making a profit.  That means you’ll end up paying whatever prices they mark on the rehabilitation products, especially if you don’t realize there are better options out there for you.


If you do decide to order from the Internet, you should never hand over your financial information before you fully investigate the company selling the physical therapy equipment.  It’s a sad fact, but there are companies out there that are only in business long enough to take advantage of as many customers as possible. These companies will take your money and run.  Fortunately, this type of thing isn’t as common as you might think, and as long as you take the time to do adequate research, there is no reason you should fear being taken advantage of.  (more…)
