Because Fort Wayne has so much to offer in the way of sightseeing, visitors with mobility issues might be concerned that they cannot keep up with their families and friends while checking out the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo, Museum of Art, Glenbrook Square mall, Memorial Coliseum events, the Botanical Conservatory, or the fantastic Allen County Library.
Worry no more. If Grandma’s arthritis is bothering her more than usual, or if your son’s broken leg from soccer practice is slowing him down, LJ’s Discount Medical provides an easy, inexpensive way for such individuals to get around and they are delighted to rent to Fort Wayne's visitors.
LJ Gebert, a former medical equipment salesman, opened his company a few years ago because he believed that the cost of renting scooters or power chairs locally was way too prohibitive.
“We believe in providing quality service to the community at discount prices and in maintaining an honest business,” said Gebert, who charges only $50 a day for scooter or power chair rental which includes pickup and delivery in Allen County. “Also, we sell, rent, loan, trade buy and repair most equipment in our store.”
This would include such items as ramps, canes, crutches, new and used medical equipment, and more. LJ’s Discount Medical will also build custom-fitted ramps directly to one’s doorstep. In addition, they do installations, and their specialized repairs to various home medical items include wheelchairs, vehicle lifts, stair lifts and many others.
So, visitors – or residents, if you yourself are mobile, but expecting guests with disabilities – give LJ a call and see what he can do for you so that you and / or your guests can get the most out of seeing what all Fort Wayne and Allen County have to offer.
