Mobility devices distributed in February by CReATE

Mobility devics such as power wheelchairs can prove to be very expensive and are only covered every so many years under insurance. UATP's CReATE (Citizen's Reutilizing Assistive Technology Equipment) provides a solution to this issue by refurbishing donated mobility equipment and getting back out to the community for a minimal cost.

CReATE wheelchair recipient,
Katie Christiansen.
Last month, CReATE transferred seven devices to Utahns with disabilities.

One device was a manual wheelchair that went to Katie Christiansen, whom had surgery on her knee and needed a wheelchair with an elevating leg rest. a client from KSL. Christiansen's mother saw a listing on classifieds for the device, and brought her daughter in to see the chair.

Another manual wheelchair was transferred to Tammy Roberts. A generous donation from Road Home helped Roberts pay for the wheelchair.

Do you know someone who could benefit from a mobility device? Call CReATE today 801-887-9398.
