Equipment Loan Program

With 3,220 pieces of medical equipment, our Equipment Loan Program is designed to help people cope with the daily challenges of decreasing mobility and independence.  Through obtaining basic and essential assistive devices at no charge, we hope to reduce the financial burden and to enhance the quality of life of those living with ALS. This includes mobility equipment, lifts, beds & accessories, bathroom aids and communication devices. Our equipment catalogue provides more details on the available devices.

The program has been expanded to include Advanced Technology which now has 128 pieces of equipment in inventory. These items include hydraulic office chairs, Google home, Chromecasts, smart lights, robot spoons, and a robotic arm.
