Lending and Loan Equipment Library
People affected by a developmental, physical or cognitive disability can have their lives greatly enhanced by adaptive devices and durable medical equipment.
The TRAID, or Technology Related Assistance for Individuals with Disabilities, program at Upstate Cerebral Palsy is part of a network of sites in New York State dedicated to providing assistive technology information and referral services, device demonstrations, and device loans. With more than 3,000 pieces of equipment in our collection, this program is best described as a technology lending library where people with disabilities can sign out devices for free to use at home, work, school or in the community.
TRAID, which is located at 10708 North Gage Road in Barneveld, is open to any resident with a disability in the following counties: Fulton, Hamilton, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Montgomery and Oneida.
The staff at TRAID understands that these pieces of technology, many of which are highly complex, can be quite expensive. Thus, TRAID provides referrals to potential funding sources for those in need. The program also accepts donations of used assistive technology devices, which are added into inventory to be loaned to individuals in need. A local and state-wide matching service is also provided for items or devices for sale.
Through a federal grant from the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA), Department of Health Early Intervention Program (EI) and the Money Follows the Person (MFP) Program, the TRAID Program provides statewide coordination of assistive technology activities for people with disabilities, fosters development of state and federal policies and programs to enhance availability of assistive technology.
For more information about our assistive technology program, contact (315) 896-2654 ext. 287 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
