According to the Centers for Disease Control, every year, more than 20,000 people over the age of 65 die after a fall and more than 2.4 million over the age of 65 are treated for injuries from falls. Owned and operated by a registered nurse, EZ Care Medical, an online marketplace for medical uniforms and health care supplies, has been offering home medical supplies that help prevent falls among aging Americans
One of the best ways to prevent falls is to make sure the home is always well lit, even during power outages. Three-quarters of all homes experience a power outage in any given year, and when an area isn’t illuminated, there is an increased risk of falls among seniors. That’s why EZ Care Medical offers the Rely-a-Light, a decorative emergency protective lamp that automatically comes on when the power goes out.
Invented by a woman whose father almost fatally fell during a blackout in an ice storm, the Rely-a-Light has 22 high-powered LEDs, which provide 16 hours of light when a power outage occurs. The lightweight lamp comes with a USB port for easy charging. Plus, it looks good on a side table, too. The milk glass lamp sits on top of a brushed nickel base and clear acrylic finial. Choose from a black or linen drum-shaped hardback shade.
EZ Care Medical also sells the Lamp Angel, a smaller version of the Rely-a-Light. For less than $50, you could give the gift of health with an assistive device from EZ Care Medical.
In addition to the Rely-a-Light and Lamp Angel, EZ Care Medical also offers other fall prevention home medical supplies and assistive devices, including kitchen helpers, dressing and grooming aids, flooring strips, shower benches, and bed rails.
