Made in the USA

Med Mart was founded in 1992, but our story starts in 1969. Jack Fesman, our to-be founder, started Glendale Pharmacy in Springfield, Ohio after graduating from Ohio State University. He created a whole new pharmacy experience by stocking medical and accessibility equipment on top of the everyday pharmacy products and eventually expanded the operation to 6 locations. Jack sold his first Lift Chair in 1983 and quickly began to transform the medical equipment industry. Throughout the 1980’s he opened 7 distribution centers across the nation and continued his mission to provide the best products and experience to his customers.

But before you buy a walk-in tub, it’s important to do your research. Walk-in tubs aren’t all equal in their quality or construction. If you call a walk-in tub company, you’ll quickly find yourself down a slippery slope of marketers calling you over and over again. These marketers don’t always have your best interest in mind. To protect yourself, make sure you ask about the following features and benefits about each tub you consider.
