The goal of the CARAT project is to help people that are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicaid and Medicare acquire the assistive technology they need that they cannot afford. The project provides a database of no-cost or low-cost refurbished items like walkers, wheelchairs, scooters, canes, quad canes, crutches, hospital beds, communication devices, and aids for daily living. CARAT began in May 2012 with a $450,000, three-year grant from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.
