Equipment Loan Program - Recreation Therapy 
 
The IWK Pediatric Rehabilitation Service Equipment Loan Program was established through the ongoing support of the IWK Auxiliary to give families of children and youth who have a physical disability or acquired brain injury the opportunity to borrow a variety of resources. This guide outlines items available for loan. To borrow adapted equipment please contact Recreation Therapy at (902) 470-3840. 
 
Guidelines:  
 
For a copy of the Equipment Loan Letter click here
 
Equipment will be loaned on a first come, first serve basis by contacting Recreation Therapy.  
 
Items can be borrowed up to two consecutive weeks, depending on demand.  
 
It is the responsibility of the family to arrange drop-off and pick-up. If traveling to pick up the item is not feasible please discuss with a Recreation Therapist to make alternative arrangements.  
 
The Recreation Therapist will review the item and its functions with the adult borrower and child/youth, as appropriate prior to loaning.  
 
The equipment will be inspected for damage when equipment is loaned and when it is returned.  
 
A deposit of $25 will be made at time of pick-up (cheque or cash), which will be used for equipment upkeep and maintenance.
