ALS-related equipment can be very expensive, so we have a bank of durable medical equipment and speech generating devices (SGDs) available to loan free-of-charge to ALS patients. Please contact Marshall Nelson, our Equipment Program Manager, and he will recommend the best equipment to fit your needs.
