ATP staff are available to help individuals and groups compare the features and benefits of various types of assistive technology. Demonstrations are conducted in our demonstration centers, homes, classrooms, and work settings.
Short-term Equipment Loans
Try equipment out before you buy it to make sure it is the right fit for you. Borrowing equipment can also fill gaps while you are waiting for a repair or shipment of your own equipment and on a temporary basis while you recuperate from an injury or illness.
The ReUse Network consists of agencies, businesses, and individuals who donate their time to connecting Nebraskans to used or no longer needed equipment. There are many individuals that may not qualify for funding, but still need a device or piece of equipment to enhance their quality of life.
Equipment can include:
- Manual and power wheelchairs
- Magnifying devices
- Devices to assist with activities of daily living
