We Can Support Your Needs in the Following Ways:
The Adaptive Equipment team offers a variety of Adaptive Equipment services to suit the needs of all people. We are proud of our commitment to recycling durable medical equipment and ensuring that it gets into the hands of those who need it most. We do this by accepting donations of gently-used durable medical equipment, sanitizing and repairing, and then selling that equipment at extremely affordable rates.
Durable Medical or Adaptive Equipment (DME) refers to medical equipment that is used to help with recovery from an illness or injury, or for long term use for individuals with disabilities or for those who are aging.
Oak Hill’s Adaptive Equipment Services provide access to mobility aids and personal care aids by refurbishing gently used donations.
Our dedicated team sanitizes, restores and resells this equipment with a goal of saving customers 50-80% over the cost of new equipment.
We often carry unique recreational equipment as well, but our inventory is based on donation and can fluctuate.
Benefits of Reuse:

• Saves dollars for both state agencies, local business, and individuals by ensuring equipment is being used to is fullest potential and lifecycle.
