Basic Medical Equipment

Thanks to Medline for allowing us to use their photos.

Please consult with a professional medical care provider to determine what type of equipment is best for you. If you have a progressive condition, some pieces of equipment may be better choices than others. A professional health care provider will be able to help you choose the right options for you.

The equipment shown here are items that may be available at loan closet programs. Most loan closet programs receive donated equipment from the community, so equipment availability varies. Some organizations are only able to accept certain types of equipment and may not have many of the items shown.
