Device Demonstrations

Device demonstrations are available to people with disabilities and their families, as well as anyone who might be interested in how these devices work, including providers of education, health and related services. Device demonstrations will help:

  • Increase understanding of the types of devices that can help with specific needs, such as talking on the telephone or reading mail

  • Improve knowledge of a device's features, and how those features differ from other devices that perform similar functions

  • Increase understanding of how device(s) can help at work, in school, at home and in your community

You can schedule an appointment with the WATR team to test devices. WATR staff are available both in person as well as through an on-line connection using videoconferencing technology.

You can also visit with the WATR team during Open Lab hours - with no appointment required.

Open Lab is Wednesdays and Thursdays from 2 - 4 p.m.

Located in the WATR Lab, Health Sciences Building, Room 151 (at the intersection of 9th and Clark Streets, across from Turtle Rock Cafe) PARKING PASSES AVAILABLE

By visiting Wyoming Assistive Technology Resources (WATR) Open Lab, you can learn about and have hands-on experiences with the AT WATR offers through our short term (6 week) loan program, as well as view what AT is available for sale in our reuse program.
