Device Loan 

The purpose of IATP's device loan program is to let potential AT users try-out devices prior to purchase, have access to a backup system when their device is in for repairs and/or have access to a device while waiting for their device to be delivered.

How to Borrow A Device

IATP's device loan program is FREE and easy to use. All device loans are for 5 weeks unless otherwise specified. The only cost the borrower will incur is the return shipment. To request a device, choose from any of the following methods.

Note: Please fill out one (1) request per device recipient.
