Some types of electronic equipment may require assistance for set-up in the veteran's home. VIST and BRCs are encouraged to work with the prosthetic activity and all available resources to ensure that equipment is properly issued, set-up, and maintained in the veteran's home environment. This may be accomplished through BROS or a home visit by a BRC instructor if the veteran lives in close proximity to a BRC. In other cases, the VIST or BRC needs to identify a vendor or third-party assistance with home set-up of special electronic equipment and convey this information to the prosthetic activity. The cost of set-up and delivery can be arranged and funded by the prosthetics activity.
