Equipment Loan and Reuse Program
The equipment loan and reuse program provides trial of various types of assistive technology equipment and software so that individuals with disabilities and professionals have an opportunity to test a particular device or program prior to purchase or at times when equipment is being repaired or unavailable. The reuse component of this program includes various pieces of equipment for loan or reuse.
ATEC is one of 13 Device Lending Libraries through AT Network, which allows you to try before you buy, compare similar devices or use while your device is being repaired. This is a free program which allows short-term loans to anyone in California.
The reuse program provides gently used or donated equipment for low-cost or free. We also accept donated equipment.
