Assistive technology can be expensive and often, even after years of use, there is still a lot of life left in the used equipment. We strive to facilitate the reutilization of gently used devices and parts.
Assistive Technology in New Hampshire supports services to help you obtain equipment at a much-reduced price and to assist you in placing your used devices in the hands of someone who can use it:
New Hampshire AT Equipment Resources
Refurbished Equipment Marketplace (opens in new window) offers restored medical equipment that has been cleaned and refurbished by trained technicians. Get devices at a discounted cost compared to new. The REM is located in Concord, but you can also visit the online showroom to find out what is available.
COA - Chapin Senior Center (opens in new window) lends out mobility equipment at no cost to any community member in need. You do not need to be a COA member. The equipment must be signed out by completing a brief form and questionnaire. We ask that equipment be returned clean and in good working order within two weeks of the date it was borrowed. If you have any questions or concerns regarding a piece of equipment please call COA at 526-6368.
New England Equipment Resources

Spurwink ALLTECH (opens in new window) is a non-profit organization offering a "Recycle and Reuse" service.
