Medical Equipment for Healthy, Happier Lives
For more than 25 years, FODAC has given adults and children with disabilities in need the durable medical equipment (DME) necessary for an enhanced quality of life. Over the history of our organization, we have provided medical supplies and items of all types—from standers and wheelchairs to hoyer lifts and hospital beds. But we couldn’t do it without the families and organizations who donate their new and used medical equipment, and our volunteer-run repair shop that cleans, refurbishes and matches the equipment to the specs of the new user.
We understand the diverse needs of people with disabilities and can provide equipment to match any need. We provide hundreds of items and parts including:
- Corner chairs
- Gait trainers
- Shower supports
- Toilet supports
- Therapy aides
- Specialized mattresses
- Bathing aids
- Hoyer lifts
- Hospital beds
- and many other items
To Request a DME Item from FODAC:
Home Medical Equipment items are provided on a first come-first serve basis. If you are in need of a specific type of medical equipment, please call us to check availability at 770-491-9014 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (Walk-in requests are not recommended). There is a one-time $25 registration fee for each new client to evaluate your needs and add your profile to our database. If we have the item(s) you need, you will have two business days to pick up the item(s) after being notified. Medical equipment service hours are 9:30 am-12 pm and 1 pm-5 pm Monday-Friday. We see our last client at 3:30.. You will need to bring an original (or copy) of the client’s state ID, driver’s license or Medicaid/Medicare card (not other persons picking up the item). We must have this so we have the exact address of the recipient in our database. FODAC can deliver some items for a fee within the Metro Atlanta area. If you live outside Georgia, there are programs similar to ours in other states. Check out passitoncenter.org for the one nearest you.
To Request a Repair of Your DME item:
The FODAC Repair Shop provides low-cost repairs on wheelchairs and other DME even if you did not get the item from us. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Repair appointments must be made by calling (770) 491-9014. We do not perform walk-in repairs.
- There is a mandatory contribution of $25 for each repair, this contribution is to be made IN ADVANCE of the repair. Some repairs require additional service fees, click here for a list that includes new battery costs. It is only with these contributions that FODAC can continue to provide the excellent services that our clients expect. Please see the client information sheet above for additional information on repairs.
