Please note: equipment availability is subject to change frequently. Except where noted below, all loans remain the property of the Chapter and must be returned when no longer in use.

A confirmation of diagnosis may be requested before loans can be approved. Some items may need approval or recommendation from a specialized therapist such as a physical therapist, occupational therapist, respiratory therapist, speech pathologist or nutritionist.

The ALS Office Storage Area

In most cases, items must be picked up and returned to the office. Items must be clean and sanitized before accepted into the loan closet. Delivery is sometimes available for larger items, however, it can take several weeks to arrange.
