Loan Banks for Communication and Medical Equipment

As ALS progresses, patients often need medical devices and equipment for comfort and independence. This includes augmentative communication devices and durable medical equipment such as wheelchairs. The Foundation maintains an inventory of new and donated equipment and communication devices. This equipment is intended for those needs not covered by insurance, for families awaiting insurance approval or for those who would otherwise be unable to obtain it.

If you are in need of equipment or have questions about the loan bank, contact Judy Richman, RN, BSN, Director of Support Services and Education or call 847 679 3311.
