Device Support

Durable Medical Equipment Loan Program

Easterseals Iowa Assistive Technology Program recognizes that there are times when new devices or high-cost items may be out of financial reach. We offer support and services to meet the needs of Iowans seeking equipment.

Device Recycle and Reuse Services

As you advance your financial options, know that the Easterseals Iowa Assistive Technology Center takes in donated, used devices and durable medical equipment. These sanitized and refurbished devices are provided to Iowans with disabilities for a small service fee for as long as needed - together, we pave the way to establishing a more inclusive environment for those we serve.

The Easterseals Iowa Durable Medical Equipment Loan Program is not an emergency program. Every effort is made to respond to requested needs in a timely manner, including picking up equipment, matching equipment with borrower, and delivering equipment. These services will not be available for an overnight or emergency need.
