If you read any of my blogs then you know that I am pretty keen on passing along resources that might be helpful to you or someone you know. Recently, I was being measured for a new wheelchair and got to chatting with the physical therapist about what to do with some adaptive items that I no longer use. It's always nice to see these things being recycled. Especially because adaptive items can be so expensive!
Much to my surprise, there is a website where you can borrow or donate items such as wheelchairs, medical beds, adaptive strollers, and all sorts of other things. If you are in the market for some new adaptive item but aren't sure if you want to make a purchase, you may want to borrow it first to see if you like it.
