Dh received his as part of his PT packet following his microdiscectomy. Even tho $15 isn't much to pay, you prolly could get a prescrip from your dr and have your insurance cover it. Bet it would be at an outrageous price, too, however.
I've seen them at Bed Bath & Beyond and at Linen's N Things - but the more sturdy ones (and better in my opinion) are at pharmacies (best ones where they sell other pharmaceutical appliances). The ones at BB&B and LNT are a bit cheaper (but you get what you pay for).
I submitted the receipt to my insurance company and was turned down. Oh well, still money well spent.
hey , I live in a tri-level houme so i bought three , one for each floor, they are ez assist reacher about 18.00 each , they are longer then the standard reacher so for a tall guy like me 6'2'' that are a geat help. MY dogs hate them, I got then from a medical supply store .
I bought the EZ reacher deluxe from their website for 25.00. It has the wider head and can lift 5 lbs and bigger stuff than most others can. Didn't want a cheapie that didn't do the trick. I found the ones at the drug stores to have too small of heads.
I bought the 32" for me and two 42" ones for my dad to keep at either end of his house. Use mine all the time and I'm 6 mons post op.
