As a medical provider, or someone that is undergoing in-home physical therapy, it can be frustrating when your rehabilitation equipment doesn't work properly or breaks down during use. At The Medcom Group, our service department is second to none when it comes to repairing and replacing parts on worn-down rehab equipment. We've serviced various models of continuous passive motion (CPM) machines, including shoulder models, knee models, and hand devices.
We work with both hospitals and home patients to get your equipment working properly in a short amount of time. With our knowledge and experience, no issue is too small or too big; we simply focus on the problem and resolve it correctly and efficiently. If you simply have a question about why your machine may not be working, we'll assist in any way we can. If it's determined that it's time to retire your current machine, we have several options that you can rent or buy at a reasonable price.
At The Medcom Group, we want patients to have access to safe and functional rehabilitation equipment. If your doctor has prescribed the use of a CPM machine or a sequential compression device (SCD), we'll make sure that yours is in top working condition. Following surgery or a severe injury, a CPM or SCD could be the perfect path to returning you top optimal health. Make sure your equipment is above par by checking with our service department today. We're always prepared to answer your questions and provide the repairs that minimize the interruption of your physical therapy.
