  1. Breathe Easy with Air Purifier

    Breathe Easy with Air Purifier

    A shocking revelation by AirVisual, the leading source of international air quality data said that India is home for 20 of the worlds 25 worst polluted cities. This was indeed alarming to an extent that the government of India launched the National Clean Air Programme (NCAP) under the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change in January this year. The severity of the air pollution can be judged by the fact that 12.5% of the total deaths in 2017 were accounted to air pollution.

    In Indian cities 80% of the population is exposed to air pollution that exceed the WHO’s standards. A major part of this air pollution is all year around, from burning of diesel, petrol, gas, coal, biomass, and waste and resuspended dust. The particle size, less than 2.5 micro-meters, is small enough to enter our lungs and blood stream and cause lung disorders. There are more studies linking PM 2.5 to various health risks than any of the other pollutants. So, if we target PM 2.5 the one pollutant we are mainly concerned then we are invariably targeting all the other pollutants as well. Therefore, any control mechanism aimed at reducing PM 2.5 emissions also reduces other pollutants as the source of these pollutants are common, except for resuspended dust.

    Well ventilated homes are the best way to battle pollution. It is found that indoor air is 10 times more pollutant than the outside air. This is because the air inside is a combination of outside air plus the domestic pollutants. Inhaling the high quantity of carbon dioxide present in the house would result in shortness of breath, headaches, dizziness, loss of mental ability, blood pressure and lung diseases.

    Air purifiers are a decent solution to this indoor pollution problem as it cleans the air of carbon dioxide and makes the air more breathable. Also, air purifiers are more effective in killing insects than the sprays that add to the pollution at home. Clean air contains higher level of oxygen which helps in better function of the brain and also acts as a mood enhancer. People who breathe cleaner air are less stressed. Air purifier is also the answer for the airborne virus and bacteria. An air purifier not only produces clean air but also a soothing sound that almost hums you to sleep. There are certain purifiers that circulate the air up to six times a day. Circulating the air in the home will free dangerous particles from surfaces allowing the purifier to trap them in their units.  Air purifiers are capable enough to detect air pollutants real time and boost the speed accordingly for a cleaner air output.

    In conclusion air is free to breathe but breathable clean air comes at a cost,Hence invest in a good air purifier. A cost that is well invested for a healthy life of the family.

  3. Healthy habits for healthy living

    Healthy habits for healthy living

    It’s a true fact that most of us want to live long, happy, successful, and healthy lives. Unfortunately, in our pursuit of success we often take shortcuts with our health and wind up suffering from various ailments and disabilities that we could have avoided. It doesn’t have to be that way at all. Though many of us live stressful, demanding lives, with just a little tweaking here and there, we can develop habits that will help us live healthier and more productive lives. There is no shortage of information available on suggested tips for living a healthy lifestyle. One book we saw suggested no less than 107 healthy habits! We won’t get that exhaustive, but we pinpointed the most prevalent seven healthy habits that anyone should be able to include in their daily lives. One can keep up with healthy and long living by following the below mentioned point.

    1. Get your exercise

    Exercise regularly - Rehamo

    Regular exercise is probably the closest we can get to a fountain of youth. According to the National Cancer Institute, regular exercise helps control weight, maintain healthy bones, muscles, and joints, and reduces our risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes. Many exercise authorities suggest 30 minutes of exercise, 5-6 days a week, giving your body one day to rest and recuperate. The exercise doesn’t have to be a gut-wrenching, iron-man type experience. Something as simple as a brisk 30-minute walk can work wonders for your health and literally add years to your life. And it can be supplemented by taking the stairs at work, a 10-15 minute walk during lunch, or having a small pedaling device at your desk. The main thing is to find exercise that you enjoy, not something that’s an ordeal.

    2. Always eat breakfast

    Research shows that people who have breakfast tend to take in more vitamins and minerals and less fat and cholesterol. Eating things that are high in fiber and proteins keeps you feeling full and energized. These include whole-grain cereals and breads, low-fat milk, fruit, and yogurt.

    3. Practice healthy eating throughout the day

    This habit includes such things as eating more fruit and nuts and avoiding sugary drinks and snacks. At meal time, the American Heart Association recommends a serving of fish twice a week. Besides being a rich source of protein, fatty fish (mackerel, salmon, lake trout, herring, sardines, and albacore tuna) have omega-3 fatty acids which reduce the threat of heart disease.

    Don’t forget portion control. If you want to live to be 100, go for larger portions of fruits and vegetables rich in vitamins, minerals, and fiber, and consume smaller portions of higher calorie foods containing large amounts of sugar and fats.

    And chew your food! Many nutritionists recommend chewing each mouthful 20-30 times to get it into its most digestible form. Studies have also shown that chewing slowly reduces calorie intake by about 10%, partly because it takes your stomach about 20 minutes to tell the brain that it’s full.

    4. Stay hydrated

    Dring water regularly - Rehamo

    Getting the proper amount of water is extremely important as every cell, tissue, and organ in our bodies needs water. Traditionally we’re told we need eight 8-ounce glasses of water daily, an amount that’s never been substantiated medically. Perhaps a better guide is to try to drink enough water that you urinate once every 2-4 hours, and the urine is light in color.

    To help develop and keep this habit, many devices, from “smart bottles” to numerous free apps, are readily accessible to keep you properly hydrated.

    5. Don’t neglect dental hygiene

    At the end of a long day, how many take the time to floss? Some studies indicate that regular flossing could add over 6 years to your life. The theory is that the bacteria that produce dental plaque enter the bloodstream and are somehow associated with inflammation that blocks blood vessels and causes heart disease. So, get in the habit of giving your teeth a good bedtime flossing and add years to your life.

    6. Get your sleep

    Sleep is crucial to our wellbeing. As we sleep, the brain clears away the debris of the day’s work while resetting and restoring nerve networks so that they can function fully when we wake.

    We all know the most common effects caused by the lack of sleep are drowsiness, fatigue, lack of focus, and forgetfulness. But the consequences of sleep deprivation may go far beyond the well-known, and have possibly long-lasting effects on your brain. One recent study from Italy suggests that the consistent lack of sleep may cause the brain to start destroying itself. The researchers studied the activity of the glial cells that act as the brain’s caretakers, sweeping out unneeded brain cell connectors (a kind of brain junk) to keep the brain functioning normally. They found that the glial cells were far more active in the sleep deprived mice, and it’s possible that this hyper-sweeping/destructive activity may contribute to Alzheimer’s and other brain disorders. To avoid this potential threat, develop the habit of getting a solid 7-9 hours of sleep. If you’re having trouble dozing off, keep your bedtime routine free of TV, laptop, cell phone, and other devices, and give your brain some genuine downtime.

    7. Challenge yourself

    We all get into ruts, doing the same things day after day, but to keep both body and mind agile, get into the habit of taking on challenges. And don’t feel embarrassed about not being an expert. Remember that every expert was once also a beginner.

    8. Manage Stress

    Reduce stress by meditation - Rehamo

    Although stress is a part of day-to-day life, too much may cause physical and mental concerns further down the road. It is important to manage stress in a healthful way, rather than gravitating to harmful behaviors such as alcohol abuse and emotional eating. Good habits of health include stress-relieving techniques such yoga, meditation, and exercise

    Well living longer is few steps away only if we follow them all. And we are one call away for any sort of help you need. Contact us or visit the Rehamo experience store for all the support.

  4. COPD and Sleep apnea

    COPD and Sleep apnea

    Breathing can be hard at times when you have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, also called COPD. It might be even harder when you have obstructive sleep apnea at the same time. Some people think that having COPD makes you more likely to get sleep apnea. But recent studies have found the chances of getting sleep apnea are about the same whether you have COPD or not. Still, if you happen to have both conditions, it’s important to know how one affects the other and the steps you can take to make your breathing and your life easier. So, let us know what COPD is and what Sleep apnea is, in brief.

    Lungs with COPD - Chronic Obstructive Pulmonart Disease - Rehamo Rehabilitation and mobility concept storeImage credit: Wikipedia

    COPD makes breathing hard because of clogged or narrow airways. COPD is usually caused by smoking or breathing in secondhand smoke or other air pollutants. There is no cure. It tends to progress over time, meaning it gets worse. But there are often ways to manage symptoms. One may have heard of emphysema (which damages air sacs in your lungs) and chronic bronchitis (ongoing inflammation in the tubes that bring air to your lungs), which are both diseases that fall under the umbrella of COPD.

    Emphysema - COPD - Rehmo rehabilitation and mobility concept store

    Obstructive Sleep apnea happens when your breathing stops briefly on and off throughout the night. Each episode may last only a few seconds. Some people with apnea have hundreds of these interruptions every night. It has many causes, but the most common one happens when the muscles in the back of your throat relax too much while you’re sleeping. They can block the airway in your throat. People with sleep apnea tend to snore. They also gasp for breath when their breathing pauses.

    Sleep apnea - Rehmo rehabilitation and mobility concept storeNo obstruction of airways

    Obstruction of airway - Sleep apnea - Rehmo rehabilitation and mobility concept storeObstructed airways

    When you have both conditions, it’s called “overlap syndrome.” About 10% to 15% of people with COPD have overlap syndrome. The combo raises your chances of having:

    • Hypercapnia (too much carbon dioxide in your blood)

    • Pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in your lungs’ arteries)

    • Fatigue (a drop in your energy level)

    Sleeping is a challenge for anyone with COPD. Breathing can be hard lying down. Your chest tightens. You might need to go to the bathroom throughout the night. When you wake up, you may have a nagging cough. Apnea on top of COPD makes your quality of sleep even poorer. COPD can raise your chances of having a life-threatening heart attack. Sleep apnea can also raise your chances of having High blood pressure, Arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythms), Stroke, Heart failure (in which the heart doesn’t send enough blood to your body). Because COPD and obstructive sleep apnea can cause heart problems, you should talk with your doctor about what you can do to manage overlap syndrome.

    If you have COPD, you should be doing everything you can to keep your lungs working as well as possible. If you snore or your bed partner says you gasp for air while sleeping, get tested for sleep apnea as well. This test usually involves an overnight stay in a sleep clinic. Your breathing will be monitored while you sleep. This will tell your doctor whether you had bouts of apnea. If you did, it will tell how many and how long they lasted.

     A common sleep apnea treatment may be very helpful if you have COPD, too. It’s called continuous positive airway pressure therapy, or CPAP. You keep a small machine by your bedside that pumps air through a tube into your lungs. You breathe the air through a facemask or a small device that fits in your nostrils. The mild air pressure helps your airways stay open.

    Obstruction of airway - Sleep apnea - Rehmo rehabilitation and mobility concept store CPAP therapy

    There are other ways to help manage this overlap problem. These include:

    • Avoiding alcohol before bedtime

    • Keep a healthy weight

    • Exercise as much as safely possible (talk to your doctor before you start any new exercise program)

    • Sleep on your side

    Keep in mind that just because you have COPD doesn’t mean you will get sleep apnea. But if you do, it’s important that you work with your doctors to manage both problems as well as you can. And here in Rehamo, we promise to provide quality service for every customer. We ensure one gets the right amount of information about COPD and Sleep apnea and also they get all the necessary facilities to keep them at bay.

  5. Bathroom safety and fall prevention

    Bathroom safety and fall prevention

    When it comes to the safety of the elderly in a home, the bathroom deserves immediate attention. Over 230,000 people are injured in the bathroom each year, according to the most recent survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Most of those injuries are caused by falling, with those who are aged 65 or older having the highest injury rate — including the highest fracture rates and being hospitalized most often. It’s not just slipping in the bathtub or shower. Standing up from, sitting down on or using the toilet was the No. 3 cause of injuries in the bathroom, followed by getting out of the tub or shower. Many falls do not cause injuries. But one out of five falls does cause a serious injury such as a broken bone or a head injury. These injuries can make it hard for a person to get around, do everyday activities, or live on their own. Falls can cause broken bones, like wrist, arm, ankle, and hip fractures. Falls can cause head injuries. These can be very serious, especially if the person is taking certain medicines (like blood thinners).

    Many people who fall, even if they’re not injured, become afraid of falling. This fear may cause a person to cut down on their everyday activities. When a person is less active, they become weaker and this in turn increases their chances of falling. Research has identified many conditions that contribute to falling. These are called risk factors. Many risk factors can be changed or modified to help prevent falls. These include: -

    • Lower body weakness
    • vitamin D deficiency
    • Difficulties with walking and balance
    • vision problems, foot pain or poor footwear
    • Home hazards or dangers such as broken or uneven steps
    • use of certain types of medicines such as tranquilizers, sedatives, or antidepressants – even some over-the-counter medicines can affect balance and how steady you are on your feet.

    Most falls are caused by a combination of risk factors. The more risk factors a person has, the greater their chances of falling. Healthcare providers can help cut down a person’s risk by reducing the fall risk factors listed above. Falls can be prevented. There are some simple things one can do to keep yourself from falling. Talk to Your Doctor. Do Strength and Balance Exercises. Do exercises that make your legs stronger and improve your balance.

    Have your eyes checked by an eye doctor at least once a year and be sure to update your eyeglasses if needed. Make your home safer by getting rid of things you could trip over, adding grab bars inside and outside your tub or shower and next to the toilet, putting railings on both sides of stairs and making sure your home has lots of light by adding more or brighter light bulbs.

    Despite preventive planning, sometimes a loved one may fall out of bed. Bed-side rails provide protection against accidental falls from bed. Bed-side railings are attachments to homecare beds that can be raised and locked into place whenever needed.

    Shoes are one of the safest foot protection items but inside the house, people often like to just wear socks.  Anti-slip socks do double duty in both comfort and safety. These socks keep the wearer’s feet cozy and warm while providing some traction against slippery surfaces when the user is walking. They can be worn while the wearer is sleeping so even if they can get out of bed independently, they are less likely to have a slipping event walking on the floor.  

    For people who use walking sticks, canes with fall detection sensors are available. These will be triggered once they go out of balance and into a free fall, notifying others that the owner may have fallen down and may need assistance to get back up.

    Fall prevention monitoring devices help to keep a track of loved ones who are at risk of falling. These alarm systems are usually equipped with magnetic trigger switches which are attached to the body of the person at one end and onto the device at the other end. The device can be placed on a wheelchair, bed, or on the walls, especially of the bathroom. When the person leans dangerously out of balance, the switch will be triggered, and the alarm will go off.

    Grab bars are crucial appliances that reduce the risk of falls.  They can be installed by the toilet, shower, bathtub, or any location where support is needed.

    The Drive medical Grab Bars are excellent choice for bathrooms. These can be installed and removed at any time without any tools or assistance. It uses vacuum suction to hold onto the surfacce and hence can be fixed in any angle. Grab bars work well in bathrooms with space constraints, since they do not require additional space.

    Toilet safety frames are easy-to-install solutions that helps to prevent falls that occur from rising or sitting down on the toilet. Safety frames can either be permanent attachments or it can be mobile units that can be placed around the toilet when required. These types of frames are especially helpful for people who suffer from knee injury or other conditions of the leg that makes them difficult to sit down on the toilet.

    With all the required materials and support along with extra care available at one stop, we in Rehamo make sure one gets all the necessary services with any hustle. From caretaker to all the required guidance about fall prevention and necessary tools to ensure preclusion we have been a go-to for every person to look up to for help.

    These can be installed and remove at any time without any tools or assistance. It uses vacuum suction to hold on to the surface and hence can be fixed in any angle. Grab bars work well in tight bathrooms to provide support without taking up space.

  6. Care for Special Needs Children

    Care for Special Needs Children

    Every individual is unique and extra-ordinary in his/her own kind. The term special needs, is a phrase which can refer to a vast array of diagnoses and/or disabilities. Children with special needs may have been born with a syndrome, terminal illness, thoughtful intellectual impairment, or serious psychiatric problems. Other children may have special needs that involve struggling with learning disabilities, developmental delays, panic attacks or anxiety issues.

    Special Needs Children Care - Rehamo

    “Children with special needs” are the ones who may have challenges which are more severe than the typical child, and could possibly last a lifetime. These children will need extra support, and additional services. They will have distinct goals, and will need added guidance along with constant care and help meeting academic, social, emotional, and sometimes medical milestones.  Person with special needs may need lifetime guidance, extra care and love, along with support while dealing with everyday issues such as housing, employment, social involvement, and finances.

    For children with special needs, early intervention is an important step towards helping the child fulfil his/her full academic, emotional, and social potential. Early intervention refers to a process during which the developmental abilities of the child are evaluated. If necessary, a program is developed that contain services that will help to further enhance the child’s developmental skills and encourage developmental growth.

    Care for Special Needs Children - Rehamo

    Typically, families with special needs are on a lifetime journey that is both emotionally and financially challenging. Families of children with special needs may experience innumerable emotions upon diagnosis, including anger, grief, loss, and denial. It is important to remember to be patient with oneself, as these emotions are a natural part of the process.  With time comes acceptance, and then you and your family can focus on beginning the process of helping your child with special needs achieve their fullest potential.

    Having a caretaker who takes care of the special needs is a necessity in the present living style of family, as no one is free in the daily run to take care of a person 24*7. 

    There are many other ways one can take care of a special need person, taking extra care, providing them with extra assistance while we guide them towards their betterment, sensory integration rooms (called snoezelen). Snoezelen is a special room with therapeutic environment created for the express purpose of delivering high levels of stimuli to patients with developmental challenges. A private room displays optical illusions with combined lighting effects, aromas, colours, textures and sounds to stimulate a person's olfactory, auditory and gustatory systems.

  7. Patient Care at Home

    Patient Care at Home

    No other place except home feels like home. This statement has always been true, be it when you return from a trip or from a yearlong stay in different city or few days in a hospital. It has always been proved right that an individual tends to recover fast when he/she has all the loved ones around to take care and shower love upon them which constantly reminds them that they have to recover fast to enjoy all the happy moments with the family and live every bit of their life without any compromise.

    Taking care of an individual who’s not keeping well or is aged, should be an enjoyable experience for both caregiver and the individual themselves. At one point of time in life every individual need someone to take care of them, maybe not by compulsion but by unfortunate happenings or due to certain circumstances. When it comes to looking after an individual at home and at hospital, both the experiences stand at different ends of the scale. There will be many people in hospital to look-after an individual and the responsibilities are equally divided, where one person takes care of medications while the other monitors the health record and the later takes care of physical help which a patient or old-aged person requires. But when we look at the other end of the scale wherein, we consider taking care of an individual at home, here all the responsibilities lie on the shoulder of one person or a maximum of two. Even if one manages to hire a full-time nurse, again entire responsibility lies on one person now. This isn’t an easy task to handle. Maybe taking care of a person at home is a good idea for providing mental support and love to them but when it comes to handling responsibilities of that patient it’s a tedious task. Hospitals are always fully equipped with every essential medical equipment based on the kind of patient an individual is, whereas when it comes to having all the equipment at home, it isn’t impossible but it isn’t completely possible either. The space required for the patient, the capital investment, providing time to look after a person all the time, all these consume a lot from an individual caretaker.

    motorized wheelchair

    With current evolution in every field, there’s a lot of improvement happening in medical science as well, from medicines to equipment and surgical instruments as well. There are new and innovative medical equipment in the market to help for the well-being of an individual.

    Homecare beds, motorized wheelchairs, emergency alarms, patient lifters and many more are in market to help both patient and caretaker as well. Homecare beds are necessary for a person, who spend lot of his time on bed due to immobility or bed-rest. These specially designed beds ensure a soft and well cushioned bed for a comfortable sleep and side rails for patient safety in order to prevent the patient from falling over in their sleep. Homecare beds are provided with electric controls to adjust the bed for a comfortable position when necessary. Most of them also have inbuilt alarm systems which behave like an emergency call when in need.

    To sum it up, homecare bed is an essential equipment for every patient to provide all the comfortability and to make them feel at home.

    Home care beds - Rehamo

    As we discussed above there are lot of medical equipment for the care and betterment of a patient. Patient lifters and emergency alarms are among them too. Patient lifters are very essential when it comes to carrying or moving a person from one place to another. It isn’t an easy job to lift an individual and move them from one place to another manually since it requires a lot of physical strength from caretaker. Patient lifters come to rescue in such situations as these devices are highly safe and requires less of physical effort to move the patient. Patient lifters help in safe transfer of an individual from one place to another with zero risk factor.

    surgical experience

    Emergency alarms are another form of medical equipment which are used to keep an eye on the patient when caretakers are not available near them, to ensure their safety. Many families have old-aged people who might be suffering from Alzheimer’s or weakness and patients who need a lot of physical assistance which one cannot provide 24/7 with their work schedule or because of small kids at home. In these situations, using an emergency alarm system is recommended. Most emergency alarm systems provide an immediate call access for the patient when they need some assistance. Some emergency alarms even track the movement of patient as well.

    Emergency Alert systems- RehamoEmergency Alert systems- Rehamo

    These medical equipment have reduced a lot of physical work of an individual and their mental stress as well by assuring complete safety of a patient. In present scenario where every individual is a working person, these equipment along with a caretaker have reduced half of their burden and have given a sigh of relief as well.

    Motorized Wheelchairs- Rehamo

    At Rehamo, we aim to provide all the necessary medical and rehabilitation equipment to make sure that a complete recovery is possible with home care. Speedy recovery is always something one expects, be it an individual who’s undergoing treatment or a person who’s taking care of a patient. If one recovers fast with all the treatment that’s provided, this recovery brings back the smile on every family member’s face including the joy of recovery for the patient. One cannot be happier than getting back to the life they used to lead, after all the trouble they have been through for a certain period of time, that joy is unexplainable in words by anyone. Sometimes, the doctors recommend family members to take patient home for better improvement and fast recovery. This method has been proven effective since years with the provision of right medical treatment and equipment facility. Hence it is always advised to provide right care and treatment for every patient with lots of love in a homely environment for their betterment and well-being.

  9. Challenges in Patient Handling

    Challenges in Patient Handling

    Taking care of a substantially ill person is not an easy task when it comes to everyday routine. It involves a lot of patience, dedication, time-investment, expenses, mechanical equipment’s, safety procedure etc. to name a few.  Patient handling is a topic of concern for patient, their family members as well as the caretaker because life of an individual is significant. From keeping a check on the medicines to the right provision of medical facilities, everything has to be taken care of and one has to make sure it is provided rightly to a patient. For many patients who are physically not capable of moving from one place to another, one has to ensure everything is provided right at the place where they are resting. Movement of such patients from one place to another at necessary situations is a point of concern as it involves a lot of physical strength of an individual who’s carrying them as well as risk of dropping the patient or hurting oneself. Safe patient handling programs reduce the risk of injury for both healthcare workers and patients while improving the quality of patient care. Manual handling of patients can usually cause acute trauma such as cuts or fractures due to accidents. Work-related low back pain and injuries are the most common musculoskeletal disorders caused by manual handling which might happen to both the patient as well as caretakers.

    Patient transfer from wheelchair to bed - The pivot maneuver - Rehamo

    To avoid all such hustle and fuss of moving an individual from one place to another with lot of risk factors, there are a lot of medical equipment that have come up in the market. To be honest it isn’t easy to sit in one place and spend your whole life, every individual irrespective of their abnormalities have the right to go see the environment outside their four walls. Sitting in one place helplessly and doing nothing is frustrating and leads to mental breakdown as well. There are many ways to keep a person lively. Taking them out for a small site-seeing on a wheelchair or taking them out for a drive etc. These are few examples which will make a patient happy and helps them forget about their state of body and lets them enjoy life maybe for a moment but a smile on the face for a little while is worth all the efforts. One does not wish to be born with irregularities or mental instability or end up in such situation due to a mistake which they did not intend to do. 

    Patient transfer using Patient Hoist - Rehamo

    Caring for an individual with physical challenges or mental uncertainty is a hard task like we discussed before, but it isn’t an impossible task either. With help of proper medical facilities inclusive of medicines, equipment and surgical assistance there’s a chance that one can get over their situation of helplessness and dependency or at least let them reach a stage where they can help themselves at the most they can.

    Patient care - Rehamo

    Manual assistance for a physically challenged person is hard work, it requires a lot of physical strength and 24/7 assistance cannot be provided all the time, even though we consider the option of a caretaker, they too need a break for few minutes. With a restless caretaker, there’s always high chance of something going wrong. To avoid such mishaps, considering the usage of medical equipment along with caretakers is a safe option, since they provide 100% physical support and also help in keeping an eye on patient. With improving technology there’s something new coming up everyday for the better care of a person which is highly necessary. To name a few, there are patient lifter’s, automatic-wheelchairs, electric beds with in-built alert buttons in case of urgency, and many more. All these medical equipment reduce half of caretakers work as well as lets the patient help themselves which encourages them towards betterment. Providing such help in the present scenario is a necessity as it lets the patient feel guilt free of troubling someone and also reduces the burden from a caretaker’s shoulder.

    Personalized consultation - wheelchair - Rehamo

    Many medical equipment and devices are quite costly since they are not manufactured in India as the technology here is still under developing stage. Hence most of these have to be imported from different parts of the world depending upon their availability and area of manufacture which is going to be a lot of capital investment. As we now know that quite a lot of medical equipment are not available here, and we assume that an individual manages to import it from another country then there’s another problem lined up, that’s the knowledge of handling the equipment correctly. Not every caretaker or a family member who’s taking care of the patient is rightly experienced or educated to use a new medical equipment, thus proper training is essential. To ensure proper care and provision of facilities there’s a lot of betterment required in country when it comes to medical help in terms of facilities as concerned. Medical council of India has to come up with new strategies to train caretakers with every new equipment coming into market and also has to make sure they have enough tie-ups abroad to import essentials at an affordable cost.

    Considering all these problems of importing equipment and other challenges, Rehamo Rehab and Mobility Concept store has started the first ever concept store focused exclusively for rehabilitation, mobility, and home healthcare products and services in India. We aim to provide the customer a complete experience about solutions to health challenges by educating them about various ways to solve the problem. We work with various international brands and NGOs to provide the best class service for those who are challenged making sure they have everything right that’s necessary, from the medical equipment to the best trainers for using the equipment so that nothing goes wrong while using an equipment keeping in mind the patient as well as the caretakers safety in concern.
