Helios Medical Equipment
Helios Medical Equipment was created based upon my experience working as a manufacturer representative for a national compression company. In my former position, I visited physicians, therapists, and medical supply stores from Panama City to Naples. I wanted to create a retail experience that combined the best aspects of what I had observed during my visits.
Helios Medical Equipment sells, rents, and repairs home medical equipment: wheelchairs, walkers, knee walkers, scooters, home hospital beds, and lift chairs. Other products we sell include: ADL (aids for daily living), bath safety products, cushions, canes, wound care supplies, incontinence supplies, diagnostic equipment and pain management supplements. We also possess the areas largest and most comprehensive compression solutions inventory in the Tampa Bay area for vascular, lymphatic, and orthopedic compression therapy products.
Our staff is dedicated to improving your quality of life. We will make sure your chosen product or equipment is the right fit for you. We will educate you in use and care of your product or equipment. If you are a physician who would like to recommend us as a Rx fulfillment source for compression products, please contact us for pre-printed Rx pads.

After graduating University of South Florida, I spent one more year in the hospitality industry before entering a career in sales. For the next seventeen years, I worked for two different companies selling wine/spirits and then hotel & lodging supplies. Desiring a career change, I accepted a position in medical sales for Medi USA.
Working for Medi USA was a very rewarding experience. I was trained extensively in compression products, interacting with physicians (vascular related), wound care centers, and lymphedema rehab centers. I trained employees in medical supply stores, helped directly with patients, and coordinated continuing education courses for therapists with Medi’s Lymphedema & Wound Care education team during my time with Medi USA.
Twenty two years in sales is a long time to be on the road. I am passionate about helping people so I wanted to find a solution to balance both. Thus, I envisioned the concept of opening a medical supply store. I spent my childhood in Carrollwood so I wanted to open a storefront to give back the community where I grew up. Thus, Helios Medical Equipment was established
and opened in June 2019.
Originally from Maine, I moved to the Tampa area to be closer to family that lived here. I have worked in the durable medical equipment industry for the last fifteen years with another local DME company. I have extensive knowledge in all products we stock in-store and can assist you with special request items. As an OFA, I am experienced in measure and fitting of ready-to-wear and custom compression garments. I have also serviced and repaired most every type of durable medical equipment, from the proper adjustment of canes and crutches to the technical diagnosis and repair of all Major brands of Walkers, Wheelchairs, Home hospital beds, Scooters, Power wheelchairs and complex rehab power wheelchairs.
I am HME’s first hired employee and helped define our vision of how we want to serve our community. I enjoy personally interacting with each customer to assist them in improving their quality of life. As HME continues to grow and expand in the future, I look forward to continuing our superior level of attention and service to become Tampa’s premier medical supply store.
