Free equipment to help you
There is a wide range of equipment and communication aids available to help improve your quality of life, which can be provided through the NHS or your local authority.
If you’re waiting for the NHS, your local authority or another organisation to provide you with what you need, we may be able to give, or lend, you the equipment if it has been recommended by a health and social care professional.
Are you a health and social care professional who wishes to request equipment for someone living with MND? Then please use our equipment – professional referral form.
"The Neater Eater I received from MND Scotland gives me a real sense of independence. It also means my wife does not have to feed me and she can enjoy her meal without interruption."
Our range of equipment and technology
Below is an overview of the range of equipment we may be able loan or give to you, but please note we cannot provide you with equipment unless you have been referred by a health and social care professional, so please speak to your MND clinical nurse specialist first.
We haven’t provided details about specific types or models of equipment or technology because new items regularly come onto the market. We have provided information about the ways equipment could help you live more comfortably and independently.
