Our equipment loan service endeavours to help when health and social care services cannot quickly meet the equipment needs of people with MND.
The equipment store has a range of the most frequently required items including lightwriters, riser recliner chairs and adjustable beds. We are usually able to deliver the equipment (if it is readily available from our store) within one week throughout Scotland with the help of our volunteer drivers using our own delivery van.
Requests for the loan of equipment are made to the Equipment Coordinator through our Care Team.
The decision on which piece of equipment is most suitable, is best made in conjunction with the advice and assessment of health professionals such as The Occupational Therapist, Speech and Language Therapist and the MND Care Advisor etc.
To view demonstrations of equipment which has been of benefit to some people with MND please click the following links. Please note that these links are for information only and there may be other suppliers of similar equipment. The rule for purchasing such aids is always take advice from a health professional who is familiar with your circumstances. If the equipment is recommended as being of possible benefit but cannot be supplied from within social/health services and purchase is the only option, shop around for the best price and service.
