Device Reutilization

Device Reutilization

To ensure community health and safety in light of COVID-19, ABLE Tech will be suspending all direct deliveries of gently-used durable medical equipment and will instead ship eligible items through FedEx.

Donations will still be accepted in a receptacle in front of the OKC building; however, the Device Reutilization Program office will be closed to customers.

Please contact the staff for help and questions at 405-523-4810 or email at atreuse@okstate.edu.

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)).

Device REUSE Success Story

Pat Ponder and her scooter

Pat Ponder's power scooter became inoperable. Because she was unable to leave her home, Pat could not get her scooter repaired or purchase a new one. Through ABLE Tech’s Reutilization Program, she was given a gently used scooter that was donated. Pat was moved to tears as she stated, “This has given me my life back!”.
