Over the years, our club has collected over one million dollars’ worth of new and used medical equipment either by donation or purchase.

  • This equipment is then lent out to persons in need with only a minimal amount of paperwork. 
  • When the equipment is returned, it is repaired, if necessary, and reissued. 
  • There is no charge for this equipment but donations are welcome. Donations help to replace worn equipment and fund community projects. 
  • Presently we have more than 1200 wheelchairs, 100 electric hospital beds, 300 folding walkers, 100 shower chairs, 100 bath benches, 100 electric lift-out chairs, 20 Hoyer lifts, 100 toilet seat risers, and thousands of pieces of other related medical equipment.  The majority of our inventory is out on loan! 

  • We regret we do not have the resources to deliver any equipment.
     
  • We usually have the following items on hand: 
    • 1 or 4 prong canes
    • Transfer boards

    • Incontinent supplies (best to come see what we have and we always suggest you make a donation for these items)
       

The below listed items we may or may not have on hand.  Since our inventory changes by the minute when we are open it is best for you to  come out to our lbuilding and see if we have the below items.

  • Hoyer Lift  and slings
  • Sit to Stand Lift and slings
  • Hospital bed tables
  • travel/transfer (lightweight) wheel chairs
  • Electric wheel chairs and scooters:  This is not part of our core medical equipment loan service so we rarely have these available. We recommend you contact Mobility for Veterans in Waupaca who have a showroom open to the public:  715-281-6175.
  • water circulating coolers
     

Notice to Third-Party Providers:  

  • Our core mission is to help those individuals and their family's in need with medical equipment that we loan them. 
  • Our mission is not to try to fill the needs of hundreds of local Third-Party Providers.  In the past many Third-Party providers have taken our equipment and have never reconnected with their clients to ensure our equipment is returned.   
  • Because we cannot manage the hundreds of phone calls from the hundreds of Third-Party Providers in our area we will not be able to return the phone calls of Third-Party Providers. 
  • We recommend Third-Party Providers use other resources in the state (including filing for state aid) to fill their needs.  Another resource is Loanclosets.org that is a directory of other loan closets by county in the states of Wisconsin and Michigan
