Get fit at home with Just Home Medical

Friday, March 28, 2014

FULTON, Md. – Forget that gym membership—plenty of rehab and fitness exercises can be done at home with equipment from Just Home Medical’s new exercise and fitness division. 

The online provider offers dumbbells, kettlebells, pedal exercisers, pulley systems, athletic wear and resistance bands, which are proving particularly popular.

“We figured these products are great for rehab purposes and with the New Year, a lot of people make New Year’s resolutions to get fit and lose weight,” said Nancy Pham, Just Home Medical website editor. “We wanted to give them products to help them meet their goals.”

Just Home Medical’s customers range from young children to the elderly, and include people with medical conditions like asthma or incontinence, she said. Others need rehabilitation. 

“These products are great for those who want to exercise in the comforts of their home,” Pham said.

Just Home Medical hopes the products help existing customers and draw in some new ones, too. It’s advertising through search results and writing about new products on the company’s website, said Pham.

Really, the sky’s the limit with exercise and fitness equipment, says Justin Newbrough, product specialist. It can also include compression shirts with posture panels that align the spine and correct posture to promote recovery and alleviate aches and pains, as well as pulley systems for those with spinal abnormalities. Just Home Medical plans to add athletic tape in the future, he said. 

“A lot of the exercise equipment we have is for rehab purposes, mostly the resistance bands and hand exercisers,” Newbrough said.

In business since 2009, Just Home Medical revamped its website in 2013, adding new products.
