Assistive Equipment

Back in Use

Adelante Back in Use recycles assistive equipment by taking in donations of Durable Medical Equipment (DME) like wheelchairs, walkers, hospital beds, and communication devices and connecting those items to seniors and people with disabilities who need them.

Devices are cleaned and sanitized by Adelante then given to seniors and people with disabilities who need them.

Benefits of Back In Use

Help for Those in Need

Back in Use is beneficial to our community. Medical equipment is provided to people in need, which saves medical costs and helps the individuals who need these items to maintain their independence. Adelante Back in Use provides equipment for people who need it, free of charge to the end user.

Adelante is not a Durable Medical Equipment (DME) dealer, so we cannot fill prescriptions for equipment. For certain devices we do require disability documentation.

Providing Jobs

Jobs are provided for people with disabilities through Adelante Back in Use including picking up, sanitizing, and distributing durable medical equipment.


Thousands of pounds of recyclable material are kept out of landfills every year and truly put “Back in Use” in our community.  Items that were formerly sitting unused in spare bedrooms and garages or would have been thrown away can now benefit others in the community.


Yes, Adelante also distributes computers to people in need. Though this began under the Back in Use program, this service has expanded and evolved and now is a stand-alone program called DiverseIT. If you need a computer for work or communication or would like to get involved with computer training, please visit our DiverseIT page.
