Should You Rent or Buy Your Mobility Equipment?

Whether you are dealing with a long-term disability or are on the path to recovery after an illness or surgery, Brant Arts Mobility provides a comprehensive range of home medical equipment to aid your speedy and safe rehabilitation. When it comes to acquiring some of the necessary mobility devices, you have two options: buying or renting. The choice between the two depends on your specific needs and circumstances.

The following are some factors that will help you determine whether renting or buying is right for you: 

Rent for a Short-Term Recovery 

If your situation involves only a brief period of assistance, there’s no need to make a full purchase of a wheelchair or walker. Opting to rent enables you to access the required equipment during your recovery without shouldering the entire cost when it’s only needed temporarily. At Brant Arts Mobility, we offer a variety of rental options, from crutches to commodes and wheelchairs, ensuring you have the support you need for as long as you need it.

Rent if You Want to Try Before You Buy 

With an extensive product line, Brant Arts Mobility offers a range of models of walkers, manual wheelchairs, and other assistive devices, each with its unique benefits. However, making the right choice can be challenging, even with expert guidance. Our rental program allows you to test multiple options without the financial commitment of an outright purchase. 

Buy for Long-Term Recovery 

For individuals requiring medical equipment for an extended period, purchasing is often the most convenient and financially viable choice. Fortunately, there are funding programs available to alleviate the cost. In Ontario, the Ministry of Health’s Assistive Devices Program (ADP) offers potential eligibility for 75% funding if the prescribed equipment is necessary for more than six months, provided you meet specific criteria. An authorized Occupational or Physiotherapist can assist with the assessment process.
