4.17. Disposition of Replaced Adaptive Equipment
Every effort will be made to transfer add-on adaptive equipment from one vehicle to another as long as the equipment is adequate for the veteran's disability and in serviceable condition. Serviceable adaptive equipment, which cannot be reinstalled in a vehicle subsequently purchased by a beneficiary, will be recovered if on loan, or accepted if offered, for possible use by other beneficiaries. When it becomes apparent that a facility cannot use the recovered equipment, it will be surveyed through the Manager, Supply Service, in the normal manner. Unusable or unserviceable equipment will be disposed of in accordance with existing regulations.
