Complex rehab and assistive technology products are medically necessary adaptive seating, positioning and mobility devices and that are evaluated, fitted, configured, adjusted or programmed to meet the specific and unique needs of an individual with a primary diagnosis resulting from injury or trauma or which is neuromuscular in nature. Medical necessity must take into account the diagnosis, prognosis and functional needs of the Medicare beneficiary and the expected progression of the disease or disability involved. Medicare beneficiaries that need complex rehab and assistive technology products are typically individuals with disabilities such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS - Lou Gehrig's Disease), multiple sclerosis (MS), spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, and other disabilities and diseases that may be progressive in nature.

Cpap treatment is used with the majority patients who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea. With Cpap treatment, the patient wears a snugly fit nasal mask connected to a cpap machine. The cpap allows the patience to breath freely by blowing air into the nostrils to keep the airway passages open during sleep.

We supply instructional set ups of both Cpap, Autopap, and Bipap units. This includes fitting the patient with a mask that best suits their needs.
