Reused and Exchanged Equipment Partnership (REEP)

Profile last modified: January 13, 2016

ABOUT:

Description/Mission Statement:

Pennsylvania's Initiative on Assistive Technology (PIAT) supports a variety of programs that may be a source for "previously-owned" assistive devices, usually available at a lower cost than buying new. These efforts help get used assistive technology devices such as wheelchairs, walkers, commodes, amplified and text telephones, low-vision aids, lifts, portable ramps, augmentative communication devices and other devices out of attics and garages and into the hands of people with disabilities who need them. These programs include "exchange" programs such asPIAT's Reused and Exchanged Equipment Partnership Online Classifieds ("REEP Classified").

The REEP Classifieds is an interactive online service, providing up-to-date listings that change frequently! From this site, sellers can post their own listings, including photos. Buyers can peruse the listings and, after registering, can obtain contact information about the sellers. For individuals who do not have internet access or who are not skilled users of the web, PIAT's Assistive Technology Resource Center (ATRC) Information and Assistance staff can post and search the listings. PIAT and its ATRCs do not accept responsibility for the devices that are listed on the REEPClassifieds.
