Before returning home, your physical therapist will recommend the following equipment to help with your safety and independence at home.

  • Crutches or walker
  • Tub bench
  • Handheld shower (optional)

Sebastopol Orthopaedics and Palm Drive Hospital generally do not provide equipment for you.  The exception is Medicare patients who have not had a walker in the past five years.  You will be responsible for obtaining and/or arranging for delivery of these items.  Your insurance company may have a preferred vendor for “durable medical equipment (DME)”.  Be sure to check with your insurance company before ordering.  Listed below are a few vendors in the Sebastopol area who may be able to assist you in supplying the needed equipment.
