According to, medical equipment manufacturing is an industry that produces a wide range of products intended for use by physicians, nurses, hospital personnel, medical researchers, laboratory technicians, and others in the healthcare field. MATTER looks to partner with manufacturers of medical equipment and supplies, as well as hospitals, medical device companies and wholesale distributors throughout the United States to collect excess or unneeded medical supplies and retired equipment for repurposing in other countries where the need is great. In the last three years, 7.1 million pounds of medical surplus was saved from landfills and repurposed to transform communities around the world.

An Easy Solution for Manufacturers of Medical Equipment & End User Clients

A unique, sustainable and life-saving option to discarding excess or unneeded equipment, the MATTER 360 initiative provides the sales teams at medical device companies and medical equipment manufacturers an easy way to dispose of unneeded or excess items at client locations. MATTER can many times even provide transportation of equipment to our warehouse. We strive to be a resource for the medical industry when it comes to providing a simple solution for repurposing.

Repurposing Medical Equipment Preserves Lives

After being evaluated, sorted, cleaned and packed, donated items are delivered to recipient facilities in more than 16 countries where MATTER works on projects that change communities. Healthcare providers are empowered and enabled to deliver a higher level of diagnosis, treatment, and quality care to their patients through these donations. This results in quantifiable improvements in access to medical services, a reduction in suffering, increased ability to provide patient care, and most importantly, the preservation of lives.
