Equipment Loan Program
In collaboration with health care professionals and medical equipment vendors, the ALS Society is able to support the rapidly changing needs of Albertans affected by ALS. Through our provincial Equipment Loan Program, we are able to assist people affected by ALS by lending power mobility devices, assistive communication devices, and other medical equipment. The Equipment Loan Program is free of charge, to ensure support is available when needed. The Society covers the costs of delivery and pickup, and once the person no longer requires the equipment, it is cleaned and returned to the loan pool.
The Society has a range of equipment and is always willing to consider new purchases to add to its pool. Some examples of equipment available are: walkers, manual wheelchairs, power wheelchairs, collars, bidets, lift chairs, ramps, porch lifts, iPads, voice amplifiers, hospital beds and mattresses.
(FOR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS ONLY)
Do you have equipment you are not using?
Donate - the Society accepts donations in exchange for a tax receipt; amount dependent on the assessed evaluation of the equipment. Please contact the Equipment Program Manager with the item name, make, model and other relevant information to see if you qualify.
Sell and Buy - if you have purchased your own equipment privately or are interested in purchasing or selling your equipment, you can use the ALS forums. Click here to visit the website.
