Patient Safety Equipment and Products
It is well known that falls are associated with transfers around the bed and with toileting. OMS supplies a wide range of equipment and products that aid in the prevention of falls such as bathroom safety equipment (grab bars, transfer benches, raised toilet seats, commodes), room equipment (high/low beds, specialty mattresses, transfer assist equipment, floor mats), fall monitoring devices (bed and chair alarms), and appropriate clothing (hip protectors, anti-slip socks, fall prevention identification kits).
Incontinence and Skin Care Products
OMS provides incontinence and skin care products that support patient dignity, independence and comfort with optimal clinical results, at affordable costs. Our continence care program ensures management teams and staff have access to education and resources in order to effectively assess and monitor conditions. We focus on reducing product consumption and cost containment by ensuring patients are provided with high quality, innovative products for fit, absorbency and comfort, so fewer SKUs are required. Clients can easily measure policy adherence and determine education needs through valuable monthly reports.
Seating and Mobility Products
OMS’ seating and mobility team provide industry-leading knowledge in guiding end-users and therapists with ideal mobility solutions. We offer walkers, wheelchairs, power chairs and scooters as well as precise fitting of seating components for even the most complex patients. Our wide range of products meet all patient mobility and financial requirements.

Our home oxygen team works closely with clients, their family members, physicians and other members of the healthcare team to provide the most appropriate therapy to meet the client’s needs.
