The MassMATCH Short-Term Device Loan Program allows you to borrow equipment, free of charge, from the inventory of the Assistive Technology Regional Centers (ATRCs). You can search the inventory online to see what is available (see links listed below). Since this inventory involves equipment and products from two Assistive Technology Regional Centers in different parts of Massachusetts, some equipment that you choose may not be available at your local ATRC. Your local ATRC staff will contact you to discuss options.
Device loans are useful if you are considering a purchase and want to “test drive” a particular product, if you need a loaner while your equipment is out for repair, if you are an educator or employer seeking an equipment trial, or if you need a device for a temporary disability.
