I am a stroke victim not a MS patient and looking to purchase a WalkAide. It was suggested that I register on this site because WalkAide's are available for sale here. I am 56 years old but suffered a stroke at the age of 23. I am unemployed (collect Social Security Disability) and have no medical insurance, my family would like to purchase it for me. I am obviously looking to purchase one as inexpensively as possible so it doesn't create a burden on my familly.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you may not be aware that there are restrictions for selling the Bioness or Walkaide device in the after-market.
Apparently, it is unlawful to sell such a medical device unless you are a licensed Durable Medical Equipment (DME) provider and the purchaser has a valid medical prescription for the device.
Sorry for the bad news but wanted to make sure you knew.
