Devices 4 the Disabled collects, redistributes used Durable Medical Equipment in the Chicago area

Devices 4 the Disabled (D4D) provides pickup, refurbishing, and delivery of durable medical equipment to those in need. A wonderful service helps solve one of the biggest problems with medical equipment delivery as it currently stands: forcing consumers to purchase equipment for a high price, and then leaving it to patients or their families to resell or donate when there is no longer a need for that device.

Current LocationsD4D supplies lending closets that are managed by their partners–churches, charitable organizations, and social service and community organizations. Contact the facility nearest you to pick up equipment.
