Refurbished wheelchairs available to Utahns with disabilities

Refurbishing mobility devices to help Utahns with disabilities is the mission of CReATE (Citizen's Reuitilizing Assistive Technology Equipment).

In August, CReATE transferred three refurbished wheelchairs to individuals for a small fee. Also, CReATE recycled eight chairs that were unusable, keeping them out of landfills. 
Some of the devices available from CReATE.
