Having the ability to try out devices and equipment in your own environments will lead you to make more informed decisions about devices
Device Loan Program
Recognizing that our device demonstrations in our facilities cannot give you the same level of experience as the ability to use AT devices and equipment in your own environment, we also offer an AT Device Loan Program.
Device Loans (borrow) allows for trial use of devices for up to 90 days to assistance in selecting the appropriate device/ equipment prior to permanent acquisition.
This program can provide you with the opportunity to borrow devices and equipment to try out in your own home, at work, and at school. Ideally, following a device demonstration, you would decide on an AT device that you think would work well in your environments, and then borrow it.
Any Louisiana resident with a disability or functional limitation, organizations that work with those residents, or employers of those residents are eligible to use LATAN’s Device Loan Program. For a small fee, devices may be borrowed for thirty-five (35) days.
Our device loans can be extremely helpful in the preliminary stages of purchasing a new device since many AT devices and equipment are only available through catalogs or from out-of-town vendors.
Mistaken purchases can lead to frustration, unnecessary expenses, and even abandonment of devices and equipment, which can be devastating. Having the ability to try out devices and equipment in your own environments will lead you to make more informed decisions about devices when it comes time to make the purchase.
We hope to save you hassle, time and money with our device demonstrations and loans, so contact us today at location at 225-925-9500 (South Louisiana), 318-841-1548 (North Louisiana), or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
