Oklahoma ABLE Tech supports the reuse of medical devices that are no longer needed or used by its original owner. These efforts include cleaning, refurbishment, and reassignment in the Oklahoma Device Reuse Program.
We also collect medical equipment from companies that no longer have a use for outdated inventory along with individuals who no longer need a particular device (motorized wheelchair, lift chair, blood pressure monitor, etc.).
We would like to acknowledge the Oklahoma Health Care Authority which has partnered with us to provide this program which has helped 1000s of recipients in our state.
An additional Oklahoma ABLE Tech program maintains a device exchange through – Oklahoma Equipment Exchange service which allows the public to both lists and acquires assistive technology that may no longer be needed by an individual yet sought by a different Oklahoman.
Although the AT Act does not include a formal definition of device reutilization programs, the Act describes reutilization programs as programs that provide for the exchange, repair, recycling or other reutilization of assistive technology devices, which may include redistribution through device sales, loans, rentals or donations, carried out either directly or in collaboration with public or private entities (Section 4(e)(2)(B)).
