Complex Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Closet

Most children who use complex DME outgrow it long before its useful life is exhausted. For others, their equipment needs may change, necessitating alternative equipment. Our equipment closet functions to collect outgrown or no longer needed DME, refurbish it, and match it to another individual in need.

Families unable to purchase DME for their children or adult child can access it through Ryan’s Place Foundation’s Equipment Closet on a complimentary basis.  We aim to provide easy access to complex DME, ensuring everyone receives the necessary equipment to maintain mobility, independence, and overall well-being.

DME we collect and distribute includes:

  • Gait trainers/assisted walking devices
  • Standing devices
  • Adapted seating systems
  • Transfer/ lifting devices
  • Specialized wheelchairs
  • Adapted bicycles/tricycles
  • Portable ramps
  • Adapted bathing/toileting equipment

We offer monthly complimentary equipment clinics. A licensed physical therapist will provide instructions on properly using and maintaining the equipment, ensuring that individuals can safely and effectively utilize it.
