Assistive Technology Demonstration and Recycling Sites

Assistive technology demonstration sites allow people with disabilities to discover new technology in the areas of communication, vision and hearing equipment, computer aids, general daily living aids, and more. Recycling sites provide low-cost and exchange equipment programs to make assistive technology more available for people with disabilities. Please note that demonstration equipment may vary from site to site, so it is best to contact the specific program in your area for more information.

MO AT Recycling/Exchange Programs
In addition to the centers listed above, Missouri Assistive Technology (MO AT) provides two programs that assist in providing low-cost assistive technology to individuals with disabilities:
Swap 'n Shop    

Missouri Assistive Technology's Swap 'n Shop equipment exchange program is a "classified ads" service that connects people with available adaptive devices or assistive technology! MO AT provides a listing of equipment that consumers would like to buy, sell, trade or donate at Swap 'n Shop.

Durable Medical Equipment Recycling Program

MO AT Durable Medical Equipment Recycling Program provides low-cost recycled walkers, crutches, canes, commodes, shower chairs, manual and power wheelchairs, positioning equipment and miscellaneous wheelchair parts (i.e.— tires, cushions, arm rests, and footplates). Small fees are charged to individuals with disabilities based on their ability to pay to obtain adaptive equipment from the recycling program. Equipment donations are also accepted. Contact MO AT for more information.
