Borrowing medical equipment

Goodwill-Easter Seals Minnesota lends assistive living and medical equipment to anyone in need such as wheelchairs, commodes, walkers, crutches and more. Short-term loans of equipment are offered at no cost for up to two months.

You may borrow assistive medical equipment if:

  • You are recovering from an injury or surgery.

  • You want to try the equipment before buying it.

  • You are waiting for insurance coverage approval.

  • You are helping a friend or relative accept the idea of using equipment.

  • You are ill and uncertain about the period of need.

  • You are a visitor to the area who may not be able to transport your own equipment.

How to borrow medical equipment:

  • Determine what you need, including size, special features, etc.

  • Talk to your doctor or therapist if you have questions on specific needs.

  • Call the number listed for your community to inquire about equipment availability.
