Equipment for Independence

Giving Independence

People are falling through gaps in the healthcare system and can’t get the equipment they need. Essential equipment like a wheelchair, a ramp, a pressure relieving mattress surface, or new batteries for a power wheelchair. Spinal Cord Injury Ontario’s Equipment for Independence program helps people get the equipment they need but cannot afford.

You can give independence today.
