Whether you served five years ago or fifty years ago, as a veteran, the country will always be indebted for your service and sacrifice. As a brave hero returning home, you know just how hard it can be to adjust back to civilian life. This is especially true if you were injured and require medical equipment for daily use.

As a veteran, you’re entitled to various at-home medical equipment products, all of which are covered by the Veteran’s Association (VA). Keep reading to learn about the various kinds of medical equipment that veterans are entitled to for home use, including ramps, overbed tables, and much more.

Ramps

Most homes aren’t fitted with ramps, but if you use a wheelchair, ramps are a must so that you can safely enter and exit your home. The VA covers portable, prefabricated ramps that are lightweight, compact, and transportable. Ramps can be constructed in various lengths and height elevations.

Ramps are also designed to meet American Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines.

Lifts

If you require the ability to be lifted from bed to a wheelchair, or if you need to improve mobility throughout your home, you’ll be happy to know that the VA covers a variety of lifts and glides. Covered equipment includes:

  • Invalid lifts
  • Stair glides
  • Porch lifts
  • Seat lifts

With the right lift or stair glide in your home, you can maintain your independence while safely improving your mobility.

Walking Aids

If you have trouble walking or moving around, but want to maintain your mobility as much as possible, the VA covers a variety of mobility and walking aids that will keep you on the go. The VA covers many devices, including canes, walkers, crutches, and wheelchairs.

The VA will also cover accessories, such as pads, handgrips, tips, walker wheels, and brakes to ensure full functionality and comfort of the selected walking aid.

Beds

The VA will cover standard electric hospital beds that are needed to facilitate patient care or for functional independence.

For example, a veteran that has spinal cord injuries or is bed-ridden will greatly benefit from an electric bed for optimal healing and health, to ensure better weight distribution and height advantage.

Not only does the VA cover the cost of an electric bed, but it will also pay for bed accessories, including overb

ed tables. If you’re looking for an overbed table system that will exceed your needs, choose Integrant LLC. Our atHand® Overbed Table System is an overbed rolling table that you can use for almost anything.
