Parkinson’s Disease Equipment Loan Program
Try out medical equipment before you purchase
We provide durable mobility equipment for people with Parkinson's to make life living with Parkinson's disease a little easier. The goal of this program is to provide equipment to members when they want to test drive a piece of equipment before they make a purchase or loan equipment, while they are working with their insurance provider to acquire their own. All equipment is for short-term loan (4-6 months). Exceptions are made for those individuals unable to secure their own equipment.
How do I take advantage of this program?
Please call our staff at 303-830-1839 to check for availability of the equipment you are in need of. At this time we will schedule an office visit to check out the item and sign a liability waiver. Equipment is loaned on a first-come first-serve basis.
How do I know which piece of equipment is right for me?
If you are unsure of what type of walker you may need, please consult your doctor or physical therapist.
What if I have purchased my own equipment and no longer have the need for these items?
We graciously accept medical equipment donations that are clean and in good working condition. These donations are tax-deductible and help us provide countless families with equipment at no cost. Please call our office at 303-830-1839 to organize the donation of equipment.
The U-Step walkers were created specifically for neurological conditions. Their U-shaped base with 5-wheels provides extra support and increased range of mobility. The brakes are designed in a way that the walker will not get far ahead of the user. Users must hold in the hand brakes to walk. When the brakes are released, the walker stops, decreasing the possibility of falls. Most of our U-Step walkers have a laser attachment that benefits patients who experience freezing. The laser can be turned on down in front of the feet, which initiates movement. There is a basket that can also be used as a temporary seat. The U-Step walkers do fold, but weigh 24lbs
Transfer chairs are extremely helpful to caregivers needing to assist patients around the house or out and about. Our transfer chairs are light-weight, have rear wheel locks, swing away footrests, and fold for accessibility. Many have seat belts for added safety.
