It's not about recycling. It's about reusing.
Think of the last time you, or someone you know, owned a pair of crutches, a medical boot, or even a wheelchair. We use these various medical devices for a short amount of time, then what?
These devices are often used by one person, then never again, despite the devices’ potential to be reused. Thousands of these devices become clutter in U.S. households.
Instead of letting these devices gather dust, we collect, sanitize, and redistribute these devices to patients worldwide who otherwise have trouble accessing them.
