WATR Services

Wyoming Institute for Disabilities

Loan Center

WATR's Device Loan Center offers a wide variety of Assistive Technology (AT) for Wyoming residents interested in borrowing a device for trial. Loan periods are typically six weeks, and offer people the opportunity to try devices so that they may make educated decisions prior to purchase.

To view available items visit the AT4ALL website.  
To begin borrowing items, fill out a WATR Loan Center Agreement for individuals or school districts.

Demonstrations

WATR Lab

One of our most valuable services is the demonstration of assistive technology devices. Perhaps you aren't aware of specific solutions, or maybe you're not sure what is available. We can work with you individually to arrange a customized demonstration of potential solutions. Some of our equipment is not portable and may involve multiple pieces or components, so we find that the best approach is to talk with you in advance so we can arrange a meaningful and helpful experience. Call us at 1-888-989-9463 when you're ready to explore new options.

AT Demonstration Labs at Casper College

Wyoming Assistive Technology Resources (WATR), in collaboration with the University of Wyoming/Wyoming Institute for Disabilities (WIND) and Casper College Occupational Therapy Assistant Program, has Assistive Technology Device Demonstration Labs.

The lab schedule for Fall 2016 is:

  • Tuesdays from 4-6 p.m. at the Casper YMCA, 315 East 15th Street, Casper, Wyoming
  • Fridays from 9-11 a.m. at the Casper College Liesinger Hall Lab, Room 114, 125 College Drive, Casper, Wyoming

Loan and Reuse Program

Wyoming AT4ALL

Wyoming AT4ALL offers you an opportunity to search devices and technology available for loan or reuse through Wyoming Assistive Technology Resources (WATR). Once you have set up an account, you can also list any items you may wish to sell or donate for others' use. Visit Wyoming AT4ALL and browse our equipment and view pictures and features of available items for sale or loan. New devices and technology are added periodically to the loan and reuse program.

Purchasing Loaned Equipment

We maintain our loan equipment for trial use and demonstration within our region; however, if you are interested in purchasing items that you find helpful, WATR can provide pricing information or request purchase quotes.

WYTAP Financial Assistance Program

The Wyoming Technology Access Program (WYTAP) is a loan program that offers interest buy-down for individuals who want to purchase assistive technology. To receive an information packet, please contact WILR 1-800-735-8322 and visit the website for more information. You may also download our WYTAP brochure for information.
