Get a Kit. Make a Plan. Be informed.

If you or your loved ones live in a part of the country prone to the destructive forces of hurricanes, take special care this hurricane season. The National Weather Service and NOAA predict above normal hurricane and tropical storm warnings due to warmer-than-normal sea surface temperatures in key areas of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea.

With as many as 17 named storms expected in the coming months, the shipping department at the Allegro Medical Hurricane Preparedness Center (AMHPC) is now working overtime to ship out emergency preparation kits to homes, schools and government agencies.

According to the Red Cross, a national survey reports that only seven percent of Americans have taken the three recommended actions to prepare for disaster: 1) Get a kit, 2) Make a plan, and 3) Be informed. That’s why Allegro, along with the Red Cross has joined a nationwide effort during September to promote National Preparedness Month.

Make A Plan. Be Informed.

1) Understand the storm-related hazards that could affect your family. Storm surges, flooding and high wind affect homes differently.
2) Know the safest locations in your home for each hurricane hazard and remember that the safest location to wait out a storm may not be your home but somewhere else in your community.
3) Plan escape routs from your house and choose predetermined meeting places. Look for a regrouping point within 10-20 miles from your home.
4) Choose a friend or family member outside your state as a central point of contact. Use email, blogs, mySpace and voice mail as a way of updating friends and family as storms approach and your safety/evacuation plans.
5) Decide now how you are going to evacuate pets if the situation worsens.
6) Post emergency phone numbers for police, fire and paramedics near your telephone. Ensure that children know when to call 911.
7) Evaluate your home owner’s insurance for flood damage. Most policies do not include flood damage coverage.
8) Stock non-perishable food, canned goods and store plenty of water.
9) Learn First Aid and CPR and take disaster preparedness classes.
10) Keep a NOAA weather radio and emergency preparation products in your home and car.

Cold and Flu Season

It’s coming, and we all need to be prepared with the proper medical supplies and medical equipment. Seasonal colds and flu can start as early as October and last all the way to spring. There are a few things you can do to stay healthy, and to keep your home flu-free:

1. Wash your hands. We pick up germs through everything we touch, so wash them well and often, and try to avoid touching things in public places as much as possible.
2. Colds and viruses are passed most commonly through the hands, and through rubbing the eyes, nose and mouth. Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth unless your hands are clean. Avoid physical contact (including handshakes) with people who are sick.
3. Keep your home clean. Be sure to clean surfaces like doorknobs, handles and stairway handrails.
4. Eat well. Having a well balanced diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables will boost your immune system.
5. Exercise is a huge part of overall health, and will help your immune system fight illness.
6. Take supplements. Vitamin C and Zinc are known to fight cold and flu.
7. Consider getting a flu shot. The shot is our best weapon against the flu, so talk to your doctor about it for this season.
8. Lower the stress, increase the sleep. Staying rested and relaxed are going to lower cold and flu’s chances of getting you this season.
Also, you can help prevent the spread of illnesses by staying home if you are sick. If you have to go out, try to keep from spreading germs in public places by covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough and sneeze. Talk to your doctor if you have questions about this or any other information regarding your health.

Tip: Gargling can moisten a sore throat and relieve the pain temporarily. Gargle a teaspoon of salt dissolved in ½ cup of warm water several times a day. Warm liquids like herbal tea and hot water with lemon and honey feel good on the throat and can loosen up congestion.

Stock up on everything you need to go to battle with colds and flu this season. Allegro has every type of vitamin C you can imagine, including 250, 500 and 1000 milligram tablets, capsules, chewable tablets, liquid and drink mix for fast absorption. And, get your zinc here! Zinc is found to assist the immune system in fighting off illness. And for cardiovascular health, make garlic supplements a part of your diet. Echinacea is an herbal supplement that can stimulate immune system responses. It is also thought that the combination of echinacea and goldenseal can help relieve the symptoms and reduce the duration of the flu and the common cold. A good multi-vitamin can give your body’s defenses the kick they need to ward off colds. Stock up on herbs and vitamins this cold and flu season for less at Allegro.

Keep the air in your home clean and pure with an air purifier. Choose from several manufacturers offering filter based and ionic purifying, for many room sizes. Cleans smoke, pet dander, dust and even bacteria from the air.

When the weather turns cold and we turn on the heat in our homes, the dry air can affect our health. To prevent dry skin, cracked lips, itchy eyes, sore throat and even sinus headaches, a humidifier adds much needed moisture to the air. You can also go for a humidifier and ionic purifier all in one!

And, keep hand sanitizers handy, to kill the germs and bacteria that spread cold and flu.

If the flu does catch you, sooth your aches and pains with a heat wrap. Allegro has every type of heat wrap you can imagine. Try a wrap filled with wheat that is heated in the microwave for natural, powerful pain management. The wheat filling conforms to your body shape. Comes in wraps for your back, neck, eyes and even your feet! Or, moist heat packs have been the chosen treatment for thousands of doctors for years! Moist heat penetrates deep into tissues to relieve soreness, and make aching muscles feel better. Comes in several shapes and sizes for different parts of the body.

And, for the latest in pain relief, Light Relief Infrared Therapy offers another drug-free alternative. Infrared light therapy works by emitting energy in the infrared spectrum to provide temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain, to relieve stiffness, relax muscle tissue and temporarily increase local blood circulation.

Keep an eye on illness with a new thermometer. Choose from ear, underarm, oral, rectal and disposable thermometers with digital or standard display. Take your baby’s temperature the easy way, with a pacifier thermometer. It only takes a minute and a half, and even beeps when the fever is high.

For flu symptoms and painful congestion, pain relievers like acetaminophen, ibuprofen and aspirin can help.

Stuck in bed? Make yourself comfortable! A heating pad will help ease achy muscles. Or, a new specialty pillow may be just what you need. Allegro has contour pillows, the latest in head and neck positioners, and cervical pillows. And, to chill out a fever and bring relief to your achy head, try the Chillow Pillow. Activate it once and it brings a fluid-cool sensation every time you lay on it. You will not know how you got along without your Chillow Pillow.

Avoid midnight trips to the store this cold and flu season. Stock up on everything you need to make your family healthy and happy, right here at Allegro.

Shopping for Babies and Kids

The world of baby products is vast, and it takes constant research and information sifting for pregnant women and moms to keep up with it. All the info influx – the product reviews, parenting magazines, books and blogs can be overwhelming, and they often contradict each other. Expensive trends can also sway new parents into spending more than is necessary on baby gear. Parents have to make decisions on what they can afford, what their babies really need, and what is going to truly be helpful to them in raising a healthy, happy child.

Some of the best sources of information on baby products and taking care of infants are other moms, friends, family, and even our own mothers (though if you plan on spending $900 on a trendy new stroller, don’t expect your mother to automatically be on board). Tried and true methods of taking care of babies are usually the best. Listen to what other mothers have to say, and it will often ring true when you try it for yourself.

What to Buy, What Not to Buy

Most new moms don’t know what type of breastfeeding pillow they will need, or if their child will like being carried in a sling, or which song is going to make him fall right to sleep, until they give different things a try. Babies will respond to some things and not others. Your best bet as a parent is to gather information and make informed decisions on what you hear and read, and what products you can afford. You and your baby will find what works best for you.

Our Maternity Care and Children / Pediatrics product categories offer a wide array of products for all kinds of kids, at great prices to help both new and experienced parents.

Children and Pediatrics
Allegro has childcare necessities – from nutrition to toys to car seats and cribs, in stock and at great prices. Looking for a gift for a new baby? We have everything a new mom needs.


Baby gates are important to steer little ones in the right direction. Keep your children away from stairs, or keep them confined to certain spaces, with the right gate for your home. Worried about Jr.’s head getting caught between those rails? Get the Railnet, perfect for indoor or outdoor balconies or gates your child may try to squeeze through.

The right car seat will keep your child safe and comfortable, while giving you peace of mind. Choose a seat for newborns, for toddlers, or a convertible seat that will take your child all the way to 40 pounds.
For older children, Allegro has booster seats and car seats available to keep them safe to the federal regulation height of 4’9″.

Premature babies can be transported more safely in a car bed, designed to keep their bodies snug and secure.

Travel easily with your baby and a portable crib. Folds flat for travel and takes up less space than a regular crib. And for home, a convertible crib will take your child from infant through the toddler years. Worried about insects or pets? Get a crib tent. Your child is protected, and can still see and hear outside the crib.

Childproof your home with safety products that are sure to keep baby out, and keep all his little parts away from household danger. Outlet covers, furniture corner cushions, window blind cord covers, oven locks, cabinet locks and much more can be delivered right to you.

Baby monitors are important for the safety of your child, and for your own peace of mind. Have the freedom to move about your home and keep an eye on your baby at the same time. Choose from handheld or larger screen monitors, or a simpler, less expensive audio system.

Baby Gifts

Send gifts to the new mother in your life, direct to her door for less from Allegro. Browse through our audio or audio/video baby monitor systems, car seats, strollers, bike trailers and swings, from great brands you can trust. Or, get her something she doesn’t even know she needs like the Bumbo Seat, our most popular baby product. It safely keeps children 3 months to 16 months seated upright and comfortable, and is completely portable. Or, how about an indoor/outdoor play yard with a protective net to keep out bugs and pets? Whatever your new mom needs, get all your baby gifts at Allegro for less.

Nutrition and Exercise

It’s not always easy to ensure your child gets the proper nutrition. The right baby formula can provide properties similar to breast milk, including lipil, which contains the fatty acids that build brain and eye function. If your child has food intolerances or allergies, choose a supplement that provides nutrition without adverse reactions. And if you have a colicy baby, hypo-allergenic formula can sooth his symptoms. Find the right formula for your baby, low priced and delivered to you, from Allegro.

For children who are not getting proper nutrition due to illness, gastro-intestinal issues, inability to eat and more, supplements can help lead them to a more healthy life. Talk to your pediatrician about the proper supplements for your child.

Fight obesity, so common in America’s children today, with a regular exercise and activity program for your children. For fun body and movement exploration, Body Sox are great for kids of all ages. Just put one on your child and see how creative he can be! And don’t forget the instructional video.

Wrist or ankle weights can not only help your child to recuperate from an injury. They can add resistance to simple exercises, and build endurance and strength. Start your child pedaling early with a pedal car, tricycle or scooter. And don’t forget the helmet!

Are there Exercise balls for kids? Sure, and they’re a lot of fun. The hippity hop ball will have your child hopping all over the house, or the Rock n’ Rody rocking horse will provide hours of fun for your toddler. Foam and air filled balls are great for exercise and for play, for learning hand/eye coordination and motor skills. Allegro has child size, air-filled exercise balls, and foam or Slo Mo balls, which are easy to grip and never require air. Since they move about more slowly, your child can learn exercises and movements easily and quickly.

Health and Diagnosis

Check your baby’s growth at home with a digital scale, and a measuring mat. Also, when reporting symptoms to your pediatrician, it helps to have a home otoscope kit. Contains everything you need to see eye, ear, nose and throat issues more clearly.

Take baby’s temperature more easily with the thermometer pacifier. Just 90 seconds in baby’s mouth gives a clinically accurate, digital readout, without the child even knowing what’s happening. And, keep track of baby’s temperature constantly with the fever monitor which beeps when baby’s temperature rises one degree.

Get ostomy supplies for children at Allegro. Products are child sized and meant for active little bodies.

Educational Aids

What is the best way to promote learning outside of school? Make learning fun! Electronic, interactive educational toys featuring your child’s favorite characters can get them learning before they even get to preschool, and keep them learning on the weekends and during summer vacation.

Children with autism and other learning disabilities need special education, and you can help your special needs child at home with educational aids.

Modular and Light Therapy

Therapy programs for children with special needs and those that suffer from illness can make a world of difference. As directed by professionals, these products can help the child and his or her caregiver and parents, to lead easier and more comfortable lives.

Pedal systems can help children develop motor skills and balance, and help those needing rehabilitation from surgery or accidents.

Potty seats for young children and those with special needs can help position them correctly, and encourage them to go. Positioning chairs will keep a functionally impaired child or a child in therapy sitting upright, provide head control, and allow freedom of movement. Also get stable seating with adjustable benches, perfect for therapists and caregivers who are rehabilitating children, or those teaching children to sit and stand up.

For help in the bath, a bath seat provides stability and restraint where needed, while allowing for play. Available for children of all ages and sizes.

Modular seating systems for children with cerebral palsy, neurological and motor dysfunction can help as part of therapy programs, at home or at care facilities. Ideal for a variety of positions and functions.

Tumble Forms Bolster Rolls are adaptive positioning shapes that (in their simplicity) are used to create postural challenges during therapy. They are great for stretching, rehabilitation and various exercise techniques for adults and children.

Versatile therapy wedges are for both fine and gross motor skills development. They are adaptable to your child’s growth and changing therapeutic needs. Or, strap wedges provide additional positioning control with wide straps that hold the torso in place.

Seating, Positioning and Standing

Floor sitters for special needs children of all ages and sizes provide secure, comfortable seating during relaxation, play and interaction. Choose from several styles, in 2 and 3 piece models, which include a feeder seat (originally created for feeding), a wedge to securely position the seat, and optional base to secure the wedge on the floor. Made of durable material that is easy to clean.

Children’s chaises are not only good for the bath and shower. Take your child to the beach and reduce your worry about his safety. Straps and comfort headrests keep him in place.

To keep your child in a therapeutic, safe or comfortable position, a positioning pillow may be what you need. Provides support for particular body parts, or the entire body, depending on the pillow. Semi permanent positioning pillows allow you to place the body or part of the body on the pillow, let it mold around the body, then suck out the air with a vacuum. The pillow will remain in this exact position until you decide to change it.

Get the most versatile children’s chair there is — it starts as a high chair that can be pushed right up to your table, and will be used by your child at the dinner table and beyond, into his teens! Contemporary style and solid wood form. Allegro also has other name brand high chairs at great prices!

Baby and children’s seats make it convenient for parents to watch their children and know they are safe and secure. One lightweight toddler seat (with a carry handle) is 5″ high on one side, and 7″ high on the other, so it can be used as your child grows. The Bumbo Seat safely seats a child approximately 3 to 16 months old, and can be placed anywhere! It works with baby’s posture and helps him to develop trunk control. Add the tray for toys and snacks.

Your special child may be using standing therapy. If you need a stander, we offer a variety for children of various heights and weights. Standing can be very beneficial for disabled children’s self esteem, and physical well being.

Strollers, Walkers, Wheelchairs

Allegro has the right stroller for your child. Keep jogging, and bring the baby along with a jogging stroller, or try a 2-in-1 that can be attached to the back of your bike as a trailer.

Pushchairs for special needs children, adolescents and teens are important investments. Your child should be comfortable and safe, and the chair should fit your lifestyle while allowing the child to be as active as possible. Compare our prices. Check out our pushchairs and accessories for your child.

Walkers and crawling aids for children with developmental delays, cerebral palsy and other special needs can make all the difference in their mobility for life. Find the walker for your child at Allegro.

A child’s wheelchair needs to work with his or her individual lifestyle, while fitting the home, transportation and surroundings, and will grow with the child as long as possible. The right wheelchair will help a child’s confidence, allowing people to see the child, not the chair.

Each year Allegro Medical sends a team of product specialists to the medical equipment trade show, or Medtrade as it is known in the medical equipment and medical supply industry. We sift through thousands of new products making their way to market and meet with hundreds of manufacturers in order to be the first to bring our customers new and innovative products. This year, our team uncovered the best-of-the-best. We found items and devices that aim to make life easier, help with a disability or provide greater independence, mobility and quality of life. These nifty items are briefly described below but more information can be found by following the product links back to the www.AllegroMedical.com website.

Of the various products we reviewed, these caught the attention of our experts and have just been added to our product lineup at www.AllegroMedical.com.

The FootFlush
A great new device that adapts to any household toilet, providing a foot operated way to flush. For anyone with limited mobility due to disability or injury, the FootFlush makes life easier. In addition to the general functionality of the FootFlush, the product promotes a more sanitary bathroom and better hygiene as hand contact with ones toilet is no longer necessary.

The BigJohn
The BigJohn is an innovative product to assist in one of the most fundamental of daily living functions. The BigJohn toilet seat adapter fits over most toilets to add a comfortable and supportive seat for plus size patients, seniors or anyone looking for the most comfortable toilet seat. Unlike other adaptive toilet products like safety frames and seat elevators, the BigJohn was developed to meet the needs of the big-and-tall and heavy individual. It is built to last and boasts enough strength to support up to 1,200 pounds.

Nimbo Walker

This pediatric posterior walker design by Wenzelite is favored by physical therapist. The posterior walker supports the child from behind, promoting a more upright posture and better trunk extension. For kids with Cerebral Palsy and other neurological, orthopedic and developmental disorders the posterior or reverse roller is a safer better alternative to traditional rollers.

EZ In and OutTM Wheelchair Loader
Anyone who has ever had to load a wheelchair into a car trunk or remove the same will appreciate this new back-saving product. The EZ in and OutTM addresses the challenges of loading and unloading a wheelchair from your boot as they say across the pond. Using a clever track system that rests inside the car trunk, a metal frame glides outward and then pivots down to accept the wheelchair. The wheelchair is simply leaned against the track and pivoted horizontal. Finally, and almost effortlessly the chair glides into the trunk, secured for travel. The loader works with most standard, folding wheelchairs and most full-size autos.

AIRGO Navigator
The famous 20th century architect Le Corbusier made the insightful statement, a house is a machine for living. If the house is a machine for living, the AIRGO Navigator is a machine for moving. Combining the functionality of a rolling walker and a transport wheelchair, the AIRGO Navigator is a multifunction transport device that eliminates the need for purchasing two separate mobility products. The rolling walker or rollator as they are known has improved the function and aesthetics of previous generations of traditional walkers. At the same time, wheelchair designers found that removing the large wheels from the back of a wheelchair in favor of smaller wheels made for a much lighter and compact transport device. Together these concepts have been skillfully married together to produce one of the most innovative and useful products we have seen this year.

OSI Mobility Sun Shade and Cart
Tens of thousands of Americans use power scooters to maintain daily independence. A power scooter enables one to independently travel to the grocery store, the doctors office, the hair salon or visit friends or family. A power scooter is more then just transportation for someone with limited mobility, it is a life enabler. In thinking beyond the power scooters functionality, OSI Mobility has developed a suite of accessory products including a sun shade and utility carts making the power scooter even more functional. Check out the tow-behind carts, shades, and holders here: OSI Mobility Products

Arthritis sufferers, MS patients, bedridden or recuperating patients, if you have difficulty moving about doing everyday tasks, why not get some help? Our bathroom assistance products can make life just a little easier for patients and caregivers while helping to maintain privacy and dignity.

Bathing Assistance

Showering and shampooing for immobile patients doesn’t have to be painful or dangerous. Allegro’s list of bathing assistance products can make bathing easier, and safer. Many nurses prefer waterless bathing with cleansing cloths over sponge bathing for bed ridden patients; for increased patient satisfaction and convenience. Get your patient or loved one clean and happy with less discomfort. And, avoid water in the bed altogether with rinse-free shampoo. Cleans and conditions the hair – completely waterless! For patients who prefer water, shampoo basins with comfortable neck rests make a refreshing shampoo a breeze!

Avoid potential danger and discomfort in the shower and have a seat! Shower benches come with suction feet and comfortable seats that are removable for cleaning. Bring the shower head down to you, with a massaging hand held shower head.

Allegro has a great selection of shower sponges, loofahs and scrubbers with long and curved handles for those hard-to-reach places. And they are easy to grip!

Bath Transfer Benches

Get in and out of the tub fearlessly with a transfer bench. The bench extends over the tub wall for entry, and provides a comfortable seat for showering with just a slide over. Many benches need no tools for assembly.

Commodes and Commode Accessories

For bedside care, the right commode can help patients feel more comfortable. Choose from standard chairs, rolling chairs, extra wide and heavy duty commodes. Drop arm commodes make transfers in and out of bed easier. The backrest on some commodes can be removed, creating a toilet safety frame, for ease of movement on and off the toilet. Wall mounted arm supports for the bathroom can give that added bit of support near the toilet. If a whole frame is more than you need, an arm support may be just right. Save money on commode necessities such as pails pail liners, and splashguards at Allegro.

In the Bathroom

Need a lift? Safety grab bars for the tub, shower, toilet and even near a stairwell can provide the support you need for safely living life. Install in minutes on any wall. And for help getting out of bed or standing try a floor to ceiling, sturdy pole you can put anywhere!

Avoid installations but add the security of grab bars with a toilet safety frame. Fits right around the toilet without obstructing, and allows the user to safely raise and lower himself onto the toilet.

For an easier time sitting on and getting up from the toilet, elevate it! Toilet elevators fit right underneath the toilet and raise it just a few inches. Your guests won’t even notice! Or, raised toilet seats can lessen the drop to the toilet seat by as much as five inches. Choose from many different styles and heights.

Toilet transfer seats make it easier without added height for those who have difficulty lowering to and rising from the toilet, or those confined to a wheelchair.

If showering has become difficult due to standing time, or if it simply feels unsafe, a shower chair offers a perfect solution. Select from many types, such as plastic folding shower chairs with sturdy feet. They are inexpensive and can easily be stored right next to the tub. Other shower chairs come with or without arms, backs, padded seats and even built-in commodes.

Cleansing Systems and Bidets

For help cleaning up after going to the bathroom due to hemorrhoids, post surgery, after having a baby, or when wiping becomes a difficult task, a cleansing system or bidet is the perfect solution. Choose a handheld system for portability and versatility. Other systems fit right into the toilet and act as a bidet, using water and water pressure to get the user fresh and clean.

Toilet Aids

For personalized bowel management Allegro features professional grade suppositories and oral laxatives, enemas and stimulators. And for those with limited movement and range of motion, wipe handles with long reaches help to maintain independence and privacy.

Bandages and dressings

Allegro has a variety of dressing brands, in all sizes, quantities and types for venous ulcers, diabetic skin and all other types of wounds.

  • Foam dressings, which provide thermal insulation for a moist healing environment, are non-adhesive and easy to remove.
  • Hydrocolloid dressings react with wound exudate to form a gel-like covering to protect the wound and maintain a moist environment. Hydrocolloids are occlusive and adhesive wafer dressings which combine colloidal materials with adhesive elastomers to manage light to moderate draining.
  • Antimicrobial dressings are capable of destroying or inhibiting the growth of microorganisms. Highly absorbent calcium
  • alginate dressings are placed into the wound as a dry fiber, then quickly absorb exudate and convert to a gel, facilitating moist wound healing. Recommended for wounds with moderate to heavy exudate, alginate dressings can handle up to twenty times their weight in fluid.
  • Hydrogels have high water content and provide moisture to dry wounds to promote healing. Gel and hydrogel dressings are for infected and non-infected wounds, and for minimally draining wounds.
  • Allegro is your place for bandages such as cotton-based or nylon stretch for securing dressings, self-adherent wraps and Unna boots for firm, even compression therapy. Or, for support of sprains and strains with no clips or tape, try elastic tubular retainers or bandages in a wide variety of sizes and colors. See our selection of zinc-oxide based bandages for leg ulcers, eczema and dermatitis.

    Adhesives, applicators and gauze.

    There’s every type of tape you need, right here at Allegro, including gentle yet secure paper, cotton elastic and sports tapes, plus specialty tapes that are waterproof and breathable to hold dressings and gauze in place.

    Stock up on sterile, cotton tip 3″ and 6″ applicators in boxes of up to 2000.

    Collagen and silicon

    Control the effects of scars with silicone gel sheeting. Used by dermatologists and surgeons worldwide to lessen the look of injury and surgery scars.

    Self-adherent silicon dressings minimize the pain of dressing changes by lowering trauma to the wound. Silicon is good for wounds, burns and skin ulcers. Or, collagen dressings provide the strength and structural support of collagen that enables healing to proceed at a rapid rate.

    Wound cleansers and prep

    Wound cleansers and debriders gently cleanse a wound before dressing application. They contain ingredients that absorb drainage and/or deodorize the wound, and are used to remove dead tissue while keeping healthy tissue intact. Good for painless flushing and removal of bacteria and debris.

    Use absorbers (hydrophilic dressings) in gel, paste or powder to decrease the amount of exudate and to bring nutrients to the wound site that help the body heal faster. Safe for diabetic wounds.
