Burlington, Ontario (PRWEB) March 9, 2009
Seniors and the physically challenged across North America are turning to the SILVER CROSS Service in great numbers. The poor economy means many are scrambling to find alternative sources for durable medical equipment like stair lifts, ramps, wheelchair lifts and scooters. The company has over 100 affiliated offices covering 80 percent of North America.
"People need durable medical equipment as much as ever," said Bob Harvey, founder of SILVER CROSS. "As funding sources for the equipment are squeezed, SILVER CROSS provides a very valuable service, matching those in need up with the equipment they require at reasonable prices."
Medical equipment that allows one to maintain their independence is not a discretionary item. A mobility challenged person who needs a stair lift has no choice but to use one. A wheelchair user must have a lift or a ramp to help them access their home. SILVER CROSS makes sure that people get the items they require affordably and without compromise in order to maintain their independence.
"Since 1993, SILVER CROSS has saved seniors over 20 million dollars in health care equipment by providing high quality used products," said Bob Harvey, Founder of SILVER CROSS.
SILVER CROSS provides lifts (stair lifts, wheelchair lifts and ceiling track lift systems), ramps, walk in bathtubs, electric scooters and more. Each item is inspected and reconditioned until like new. Because of the nature of the equipment, it has almost always been well maintained and like cars and homes, durable medical equipment holds it's value well and is sturdy, able to sustain long term heavy use. Used equipment can be a very, very good option for the elderly and the physically challenged.
Lifts used both inside and outside are often highly portable. When they require modification to fit particular situations, even accounting for the cost of those modifications, used equipment is often a better deal than new. Trading in equipment when it is no longer needed fits the reuse and recycle ethos. It also is a great way to make money on items that are no longer needed while at the same time helping cash-strapped seniors and the physically challenged get access to the items they sorely need.
"SILVER CROSS can help you find the ideal recycled or used mobility or accessibility device to fit your specific needs, and can help you determine what those needs are. We know that while saving money is indeed important, there can be no compromise to comfort, safety and functionality. Our goal is to deliver value on all of these fronts," Harvey said.
