A store where you can buy medical equipment for private persons, where the primary products available at the store are medical supplies (e.g. Exercise balls, Bandages, Crutches, Arch support, Orthotics, Sphygmomanometers, Glucometer).

How to map

Set a node at the center of the shop or draw an area along its outline.

Tag it with shop=medical_supply.

In cases where the primary products are not medical supplies but where some medical equipment and supplies are available, consider using medical_supply=yes; for instance many multi-purpose stores which include a pharmacy also include some medical equipment as well, such as shop=supermarket + amenity=pharmacy.

Different types of medical supply you can tag with medical_supply=*.
