Program Goal

To help individuals with disabilities obtain necessary assistive technology services and environmental modifications.
Assistive Technology commonly refers to products, devices or equipment, whether purchased, modified or created, that are used to maintain, increase or improve the independence of individuals with disabilities. Environmental Modifications (E-mods) are internal and external physical adaptations to the home, which are necessary to ensure the health, welfare and safety of an individual. These modifications enable individuals to function with greater independence.


Services are available to individuals of all ages with disabilities, their family members, service providers, employers, educators and others who are interested in disability issues or assistive technology.

TRAID Project Activities

As the Regional TRAID Center, we serve individuals with disabilities and community members by:

Revolving Door Loan Closet

The Revolving Door loan closet provides equipment to people with disabilities at no cost. This may include wheelchairs, tub seats and benches, canes walkers and various other types of equipment. Certain items may be given away to people while others are only available as a loan. Those in need of equipment can call to get more information and to inquire about the Loan Closet inventory.

The loan closet also accepts donations of certain types of equipment. Devices as simple as a walker and as complex as a voice-activated communication device are accepted as donations. The Loan Closet is a tangible way of lending a hand to the community.

Relay users, please dial Dial 7-1-1 and give the operator (518) 549-0200

Assistive Technology Loan and Demonstration Closet Inventory

The following items are available to all community members for loan or demonstration. Loans are a free service provided by NYS TRAID and STIC. We generally ask that all items be returned after 8 weeks, however extensions can be arranged. Because a large part of this program is supported by community donations to the loan closet, our inventory often changes. If you cannot find what you are looking for in this inventory list, or would like training or a consultation, please contact the TRAID Coordinator, Decker Ayers at 724-2111.
