Handi Medical Supply is proud to carry Cure Medical catheters

Thursday, July 28, 2011 @ 02:07 PM  posted by jbuytaert

At Handi Medical Supply we get excited about products that can have a profound impact on the quality of life for our customers. On recent addition to our product offering is a new line of catheters from Cure Medical.

Cure Medical was founded in 2007 in Newport Beach, California by Bob Yant. In 1981, Bob received a C5 injury in a diving accident. Since then, he has been committed to research to find a cure for spinal cord injury and other neurologic disorders.

This leads me to one of the features of a Cure catheter. Cure donates 10% of pretax profits to medical research in pursuit of a cure for spinal cord injuries and central nervous system disorders. Cure donations have focused on funding research that strives to regenerate the axons that were separated as a result of injury.  There have been some recent advances in this area. According to Neurology Today, September 2010, “Massive spinal axon regrowth follows gene deletion; a major advance in promoting recovery after spinal cord injury.” Read more

Handi Medical Supply to help raise funds for Madison’s Place

Thursday, July 21, 2011 @ 03:07 PM  posted by jbuytaert

Handi Medical Supply will be collecting donations for  Madison’s Place playground for children with disabilities. When completed, the playground will be 16,000 square feet – the size of an Olympic swimming pool – and feature rubberized tiles, a wheelchair ramp up to an 8-foot tall play structure, a four-seat teeter- totter with seat belts, and swings with bucket seats and three-point harnesses. It will also have little touches that most kids would never think of – metal slides because plastic ones generate static electricity that can interfere with hearing aids.

 Dana and Dave Millington of Woodbury started the drive to build Madison’s Place in 2008 as a tribute to their 2-year old daughter who died from a disease that withers the spine. Unfortunately, many of the grants they submitted for fell through and donations have been slow in these tough economic times.

We would like to do what we can to help this playground get made. Any monetary donations that you can contribute will be greatly appreciated. For information on how to donate, please contact Julie Buytaert jbuytaert@handimedical.com
