QuickMedical's Gail got a thank you card in the mail from Seniors to the Rescue's Gail. Seniors to the Rescue is an organization for older adults in assisted living communities. It organizes projects that older adults can do which support animal rescues. Gail wrote to QuickMedical, "Thought you'd like to see my fundraising board with all of your great products."
The Boo-Boo Bags are assembled by older adults and then donated to animal rescue centers to raise donations. The bags include some of QuickMedical's best-selling products including sterile alcohol wipes, cotton balls, and gloves from Dynarex.
We're happy to provide products to assist Seniors to the Rescue, and many other great organizations that help people make the most of their health.

Why use nitrile? Why use latex? What's the difference? Aren't all disposable exam gloves the same? All medical exam gloves are not the same and there are huge differences between latex and nitrile gloves. Although often compared, latex gloves and nitrile gloves are not strictly competitors. Because of their different respective strengths and weaknesses, nitrile and latex gloves each have their own separate spheres of use. However because of some similarities and crossover uses, many people confuse nitrile and latex. Don't confuse nitrile with latex or latex with nitrile. Click ahead to find out why and how.
Mark Jason Dominus, Perl programmer and author of the book Higher Order Perl, wrote a blog about a digital stadiometer he saw at the doctor's office. He asked one of the doctors about why they used such an expensive and seemingly complex piece of medical equipment.
Dominus writes, "She said that the manual stadiometers were always giving inaccurate readings and that they constantly had to have the service guys in to recalibrate them. The electronic stadiometer, she said, is much more reliable.'But it's a really expensive stadiometer,' I said."
"The service calls on the manual stadiometers were costing us a fortune."
Cost is certainly a factor in picking a digital stadiometer for your clinic. But Dominus continues that the choice of a digital stadiometer reveals something even more complex. He writes, "I said a while back that it is a good idea to get in the habit of assuming that everything is more complex than you imagine. I think there is parallel advice here: assume that bad technical decisions are made rationally, for reasons that are not apparent."
This is a great insight when thinking about digital stadiometers, medical equipment, a website, or even just a TV sitcom. The choices you make in your clinic or office when it comes to weighing and measuring devices are important. Visit QuickMedical for the best selection and the widest variety of choices in professional weighing and measuring equipment.

The Neuro 7 is the state-of-the-art neurological instrument for today's physician. The device is a light-weight compact tool that incorporates a reflex hammer, light-touch brush, sharp-dull tool, wartenberg wheel, variable two-point discriminator, plantar stimulation tool, and light source for pupillary reflex into one revolutionary, hand-held device.
With the Neuro 7, a medical practitioner can perform a general neurological exam in a few minutes, and with all tools retracted within the Neuro 7, you have what you need safely and conveniently clipped in your pocket. But what do doctors say about the Neuro 7? Here are some recent testimonials from physicians who use the device.
"I have been using the Neuro 7 for over 3 months now, and it has become an essential part of my neurological exam. I no longer have to carry around multiple tools in my pockets, or search the drawers in my office for Q-tips and safety pins. On numerous occasions I have been able to run into the emergency room and see a patient without lugging my medical bag. The Neuro 7 conveniently allows me to perform a thorough and reproducible sensory exam. The Neuro 7 is a neurologist equivalent of a Swiss army knife."
"I am a Board Certified Pain Physician [and have been] using the Neuro 7 for the last 3 years. It is an excellent tool for neurological examination. This tool saves me [from carrying] 6 or 7 [pieces of] equipment [to] each of my examination rooms. I can move with the Neuro 7... The Neuro 7 is an excellent tool for pain practitioners, neurologists, and neurosurgeons. I recommend the Neuro 7 to all practices."
----Dr. Hani Gabriel MD, Gabriel Pain and Spine Center Pittsburgh, PA.

Many online retailers offer free shipping. But is free shipping really free? If you pay close attention to many online retailers, you'll find that free shipping is often just a gimmick. When you decide to purchase medical equipment and supplies based on free shipping, do your research. There is always a cost for shipping. Even when you go to the mall to buy a product, somewhere along the supply chain, someone or something must pay the fees for shipping.
QuickMedical, doesn't make free shipping into a gimmick. We're honest and up-front about billing and shipping. Products shipped to us incur a cost and products shipped from us incur costs. However, QuickMedical has negotiated the absolute best rates with carriers and passed the savings to the consumer. At QuickMedical we "Buy Right," and in large quantities, which lowers and sometimes eliminates shipping costs for consumers. QuickMedical utilizes Factory Direct shipping, lowering shipping costs as well. With thousands of products, only a few hundred or so of our products are truly shipped for free, but when they are, it's not just a gimmick.
Take for instance the Brewer 6000 Exam Table. This item is shipped Factory Direct, which means that the shipping costs are simplified and truly free, since the shipping cost is built into the item. This is the QuickMedical difference-- honest and up-front billing you can trust.
