AT Device Reutilization
Reutilization of Assistive Technology devices gives new life to used Assistive Technology equipment. Reusing AT allows for good, used devices to get into the hands of people who need them. Reutilization can happen in a few different ways – through device exchange programs, refurbishment or recycling.
