Equipment Loan Program

Printer-friendly version

With 2,900 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 equipment. This includes mobility equipment, lift equipment, beds and accessories, communication devices and bathroom aids. All equipment loaned is available at no charge to registered ALS patients.  

100% of equipment prescriptions received in 2016 were processed:

1,727 requests for equipment  (2015: 1,779, 2014:1,853, 2013:1,673);

2,331 equipment deliveries were made (2015: 2,389, 2014:2,201, 2013:2,113);

1,394 equipment maintenance cleaning and repair orders (2015: 1,502, 2014:1,359, 2013:1,1,196).
