OAS Pilot Equipment Loan Program
Oregon Adaptive sports is dedicated to keeping athletes moving while our traditional summer programming is on hold. In hopes to keep our athletes active, some of OAS’s adaptive cycling and paddling equipment will be made available for loan to keep our community moving outdoors!
This no-contact equipment loan program gives access to those who need equipment in Central Oregon for access to outdoor recreation! We have a collection of easy to fit cycles and straddleboards for loan. We will do virtual or in person fit-ups, drop the equipment at your house, check that everything fits right and you are on your way to explore the area around your house. For limiting contact and risk management, this is limited to those who have worked with OAS before.
BEFORE SUBMITTING AN EQUIPMENT LOAN REQUEST, PLEASE REVIEW THE FOLLOWING:

Step 3: Wait for OAS Scheduling Call
Once you have submitted your request form, an OAS staff member will contact you within 24hrs to confirm equipment availability and schedule your Virtual Fit Up appointment. Remote Virtual Fit Ups by video or phone are required before borrowing equipment.
Step 4: Complete a Fit Up (Virtual or In Person)
Follow the link in your confirmation email to access the virtual appointment or if you would prefer a limited in person contact one we can provide that. In this session, trained staff will help you identify your equipment needs and make adjustments according to your measurements and riding style. For virtual appointments, staff will also schedule your Drop Off and Pick Up times at this appointment.
Step 5: No Contact Drop Off and Fit Follow Up
OAS staff will deliver sanitized equipment to the participant’s home and remain 6ft from others while using appropriate PPE. OAS staff will call 24-48 hrs after delivery to make sure the equipment is working well and fits appropriately. For long term rentals, staff will check in weekly for fit and functionality check ups. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE ADJUSTMENTS WITHOUT CONSULTING OAS STAFF FIRST.
