mobility & Durable Medical equipment

Often, the only thing stopping someone from being independent is a piece of equipment, like a power wheelchair or walker. Sometimes this equipment is covered by insurance, but often it is not. At LINC, we maintain an inventory of different types of mobility and durable medical equipment available to you at low or no cost.

Depending on the type of equipment, we may schedule a time for you to visit one of our offices for an in-person consultation with a specialist.

We also belong to a network of local and statewide organizations that provide equipment loans and financing. If we don’t have it, we can often find someone who does.
