HME & MedTrade Spring 2017
Home medical equipment (HME) is sometimes the difference between a life of relying on others to provide personal and housekeeping care, to a life of increased independence and freedom. From wheelchairs and ramps for accessibility, to one-handed jar openers and stove-top pot holders for meal preparation success, Home Medical Equipment is sometimes as essential to life care plans as physician office visits and therapy!
In late February, Dawn Cook and staff member Leslie attended the MedTrade Spring Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. There were 181 exhibitors and the New Product Pavilion on the Expo Floor, featuring the most recent innovative HME products on the market for one year or less. It was a pleasure meeting new contacts in the industry and gaining insight from the various exhibitors on site. Dawn and Leslie found the conference to be an excellent opportunity to discover the latest trends in HME and an overall informative experience.
