It’s called the Durable Medical Equipment Reuse Program, or ABLE Tech.

The program has redistributed more than 2,000 pieces of equipment since ABLE Tech began in 2012. 

64-year-old Connie Thomason lives in Bethany and suffers from complications from diabetes and arthritis. She says the walker ABLE Tech got her last month has been a life-changer.

“It’s given me a total life, or I’d be stuck in that chair,” she said
