Most children needing Durable Medical Equipment (DME) outgrow it long before its useful life is exhausted. Lollipop Kids Foundation’s equipment closet functions to collect outgrown/no longer needed DME, refurbish it, and match it to a child in need. DME such as hospital beds, lifting devices, specialized wheelchairs, gait trainers, adapted standing devices, prone boards, adapted seating systems, adapted bicycles, portable ramps, adapted bathroom equipment and diapers. A licensed Physical Therapist fits each piece of DME to the child before it is donated and trains the parent on the proper way to use the equipment. Lollipop Kids Foundation understands the importance of DME and believes that each child, regardless of ability to pay, should have access to this medically necessary equipment.
