What We Do

The Michael Feger Paralysis Foundation provides durable medical equipment, assistive technology products, and educational materials to people with a spinal cord injury who live in Kentucky and Southern Indiana. We hope to expand to other states as we grow larger.

Durable Medical Equipment

Durable medical equipment (DME) is a term used to describe any medical equipment used in the home to aid in a better quality of living. It is a benefit included in most insurances.

Durable medical equipment we help provide include Shower Chairs, Hospital Beds, Wheelchairs and Wheelchair Cushions.

Some specific DME that Michael uses everyday:

Assistive Technology

Assistive Technology (AT) is an umbrella term that includes assistive, adaptive, and rehabilitative devices for people with disabilities. AT promotes greater independence by enabling people to perform tasks that they were formerly unable to accomplish, or had great difficulty accomplishing, by providing enhancements to, or changing methods of interacting with, the technology needed to accomplish such tasks.

Assistive Technology products we help provide include Computer accessibility products such as accessible buttons, Sip/Puff Products, text-to-speech products, Head Mouse products, Onscreen Keyboards and Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) products.
