Recycle & Reuse
Project MEND - Transforming Lives Through Medical Equipment Reuse
Project MEND, Inc. is a non-profit medical equipment re-utilization program operating in San Antonio, Texas. Project MEND provides refurbished equipment through long-term loans to many low-income persons with disabilities who can demonstrate financial need. The loan period is set for a period as long as the individual continues to need the equipment. Items normally available include regular and quad canes, Hoyer lifts, regular and rolling walkers, shower chairs, trapeze bars, forearm crutches, scooters, transfer boards, bedside commodes, electric hospital beds, elevated toilet seats, and manual and electric wheelchairs. All items are evaluated, sanitized, refurbished, and repaired before being loaned and reutilized.
