Happy Holidays and thank you!

Thank you to all our friends for a great 6 months. When we launched in May, we were unsure of the reception we would receive. I'm glad to say it has been great!

As we continue to grow, we plan to expand our product offerings to include knee and ankle supports; leg fitness equipment; creams; and, footcare aids. We are also excited and looking forward to the launch of a new site in the next few months that will highlight mobility aids. Our goal here is to offer anything and everything related to mobility including canes, walkers, wheelchairs, bathroom safety equipment and much, much more.
