Medical Equipment for Loan
Several members of our community have indicated that they have various pieces of medical equipment (assistive devices) that they are prepared to lend out to other members of the community. Items include canes, crutches, walkers and the like.
Here’s how it works:
If you have a need, look at the list below and contact the individual directly. You will inspect the piece of equipment and you will determine if it meets your needs. It is up to you to make that decision. It is also up to you to return the item in good condition. When you have agreed to borrow an item, the lender will email firstname.lastname@example.org so the list can be updated with “On Loan”.
Neither the person lending the item, nor anyone associated with this website warrants or guarantees that the item is suitable for you nor is there any responsibility if you are injured while using the item.
The BGCC does not endorse the use of equipment or device, has not inspected the equipment or device, and makes no representation of any kind regarding the condition or use of the equipment for any particular condition or malady.
Contacting a person means that you agree to these terms.
Click on the following to open and print a Release Form to be completed by the borrower.
If you are borrowing an item on the recommendation of a health-care professional, please bring the item to them so they can adjust it for you.
If you are borrowing something for a return from hospital, make sure that you bring the item to the hospital so that the resident physiotherapist can adjust it properly – this is Very important!
When you have finished with the item (or the owner now requires it themselves), return the item and the lender will send another email to email@example.com so the equipment can be re-listed as Available.
If you have an item in good (not perfect) condition and you wish to be added to the list below, just send an email to the usual firstname.lastname@example.org
