UATP in Salt Lake City

(formerly CReATE)

In Salt Lake City, the Utah Assistive Technology Program specializes in mobility devices that are donated, refurbished and transferred back to people who need them for a modest service fee.

Service fees for manual devices range from $35 to $150 and power devices from $250 to $580.  No insurance or proof of disability is required to receive a device. The warehouse partners with an assistive technology professional and an occupational therapist as necessary to do mobility evaluations to ensure individuals receive appropriate devices. A funding specialist is also available to help those who may not be able to afford a mobility device.

To inquire about getting a mobility device OR to refer someone to UATP in Salt Lake:

  1. Call 801-887-9390 or email Tom Boman, the Salt Lake City coordinator.
  2. Make an appointment for an assessment to determine the type of device needed.

Transferring Device Ownership:

UATP does not loan equipment at its Salt Lake facility. The ownership of the device will be transferred from UATP to the individual acquiring the AT device. UATP’s intent is to transfer AT devices to individuals, and therefore the devices are not for resale. Service fees are flat rate fees. 

Available Devices:

  • Power wheelchairs 
  • Manual wheelchairs 
  • Power scooters 
  • 4-Wheel Walkers (Rollators)
  • Transport Wheelchairs
  • Canes and Grabbers

The availability of specific devices is dependent on the current inventory.

To inquire about current inventory, contact Tom Boman.

Donating a Device:

  1. Contact us to determine if the device can be accepted. 
  2. Deliver the device. 

Parts and chairs unable to be used are recycled with reputable area recycling companies. The money earned is put back into the AT reuse program in Salt Lake City. 

Donating in-kind items:

In addition to used mobility equipment, the warehouse needs items to refurbish chairs and keep the operation running.

Volunteering in the warehouse:

If you are even a little mechanically inclined and are willing to lend a hand, UATP needs you! We are always looking for volunteers who can help out on an on-going basis. At this time, we do not offer one-time volunteer opportunities. To find out more, contact Tom Boman.

PLEASE NOTE: Please call ahead to make an appointment before stopping by the shop (801-887-9390).  Our workload is very heavy at present, and we may be out of the shop or we simply may not be able to give you the attention you deserve without an appointment.  Thanks!
