Virginia Reuse Network
Assistive Technology (AT) Request Checklist
The Virginia Reuse Network’s (VRN) Equipment Exchange is a way to help Virginians with disabilities, family members, healthcare professionals and others have access to gently used assistive technology (AT) that might otherwise be un-used or discarded. Virginians may use the VRN Exchange to offer gently used equipment for sale or donation. Requests to the VRN’s Equipment Exchange are collected by VATS, and then sent out to a larger network across the state using an email distribution list. The VRN Equipment Exchange functions like a classified advertisement in your local newspaper. Requests may include all types of AT: communication devices, ramps, modified vehicles, stair climbers, porch lifts, respiratory equipment, low vision equipment and any type of AT that helps Virginians with disabilities overcome barriers or improve their health and safety!
In addition to the Equipment Exchange, the VRN supports full service durable medical equipment (DME) reuse sites across the state for persons with limited resources. These programs are full service sites where DME is collected, sanitized, refurbished, matched and re-distributed to a qualifying Virginian with a disability. For more information on full service DME programs, contact the Foundation for Rehabilitation Equipment & Endowment (F.R.E.E.) at: (540) 777-4929 or on the web at www.free-foundation.org.
