WITH GRATITIDE TO
Numotion

People with ALS may need extensive durable medical equipment (DME) at some point during their illness. Our Durable Medical Equipment Loan Closet is generously hosted, free of charge, by our friends at Numotion, formerly known as United Seating & Mobility and ATG Rehab.

Our inventory of equipment consists of over 500 items including manual and power wheelchairs, bath seats, patient lifts, and even, a beach wheelchair. Numotion stores and maintains these items at their site in Portland and with their help, the chapter provides this equipment to people with ALS up and down the I-5 corridor. This partnership with Numotion ensures our families receive free support while waiting for insurance coverage or when various DME products are not covered by their insurance plan.

Numotion is proud to partner with our chapter and is committed to our mission of empowering people with ALS and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care and support.

They truly have a passion to put lives in motion.
