Wanted — Assistive Technology!

By eanderson

June 20, 2023

Coming Soon

Hoo-ray! Starting June 30th, REquipment will begin accepting donations of gently used assistive technology to refurbish for our online inventory.

That’s right,  REquipment is expanding from durable and home medical equipment to a broader range of empowering gadgets and devices.

What is Assistive Technology (AT)?

Any device used by persons with disabilities to better perform functions that are otherwise difficult or impossible. AT improves quality of life, reduces frustration, and bolsters independence and confidence.

What Can I Expect?

We are beginning with soliciting donations of gently used assistive technology for refurbishment. This fall, when our new website launches, we will have AT devices available organized by category. Before then, we may begin to offer AT devices listed under “other” on the current site and inventory. This will depend on the volume and quality of the donations and other factors.
