CReATE Opens eBay Shop
CReATE, or Citizens Reutilizing Assistive Technology Equipment, has opened an eBay shop to expand its mission of providing assistive technology to people in need at affordable prices. CReATE is a project of the Utah Assistive Technology Program at Utah State University's Center for Persons with Disabilities.
CReATE collects, repairs, cleans and refurbishes used mobility devices and then provides them at a very low cost to people with disabilities. With this critical service offered by CReATE hundreds of people with significant mobility impairments have been able to remain active in their jobs, schools, and communities while awaiting doctors' authorizations, insurance reimbursements, and other red tape barriers that would have otherwise left them stranded – sometimes for months.
The CReATE eBay shop went live on January 22 and has sold two items. The eBay seller name is "4UATprogram."
