How can I donate a Mayo Clinic elbow brace
to someone who might need it?

A few years ago, I broke my elbow. I spent a couple of months in a an elbow brace
. It cost $800 and I had to pay for it out of pocket. Now it's sitting in a drawer in my house. Is there any kind of clearinghouse where I can donate medical equipment so that someone else could use it? I asked at the orthopedic surgery wing of my local hospital, and they said they don't accept used medical devices and don't know anyone who does. But it seems such a waste for an expensive and useful item to be gathering dust in my house! Any ideas?
