Access to Durable Medical Equipment
 for Children with Two Loan Closets

MDTAP has partnered with the Lollipop Kids Foundation and Equipment Connections for Children, two equipment loan closets that support the refurbishment and reuse of durable medical equipment for children. Although some devices are covered through health insurance, often, families must carry the financial burden of providing adapted equipment for their children such as adapted strollers, adapted car seats, standing aids, and more. And because children outgrow that equipment at a rapid rate, it's vital to ensure that these devices are recycled and made available to others. This partnership will support expanded efforts to ensure that families across Maryland have access to gently used durable medical equipment for their children.   

Virtual Consults & Demos Continue

MD Assistive Technology Reuse Center

Our MATR Center is slowly opening back up and is by appointment only for pick up of reuse equipment.  
We've been making a list of free devices, AT subscriptions, and short-term software access in one handy document on our website.

We'll continue to update this document regularly.
