Equipment Loan Program

The Chapter maintains an inventory of gently used medical equipment that’s been generously donated to the Chapter at four Wisconsin sites: Milwaukee, Appleton, and Eau Claire. These items are available at no charge to any ALS patients who are registered Chapter members. A recommendation by an MD or Physical/Occupational Therapist is encouraged prior to the loan of equipment. If coverage is available for the item(s), the Chapter will provide help obtaining the item through insurance.

Although the inventory frequently changes, below is a list of items that are generally available through the Chapter Equipment Loan Program. Inventory may vary between sites. If a piece of equipment is not available at one site, the Chapter will try to obtain it from another site. For more information, or if you need a specific item not on this list, please contact David Ferrie, Equipment Program Coordinator, at 414.207.3911 or [email protected]
