Technology has been a boon for people with disabilities - at least for those people who can handle its high price tags. Used equipment is often a more affordable option, especially when other funding sources are not available. Maybe you can catch a good buy on one of these web sites.
This page includes:

Here are some national web sites that post "used equipment" ads for a wide variety of assistive technology products:
 Abledata Classifieds
 Equipped for Independence
 NORD Medical Equipment Exchange
 Wheelchair Accessible Home Clearinghouse
In addition, many state technology assistance projects and independent living centers have programs to help people buy and sell used equipment. Check The DRM Regional Resource Directory to find one of these organizations in your community.
