Technology-Related Assistance for Individuals with Disabilities (TRAID) provides free loans of assistive technology.

Assistive technology is any device that can be used to improve the functional abilities of people with disabilities or short-term injuries.

The TRAID Program is an excellent free resource for information and hands-on experience with all types of assistive technology.

We provide device demonstrations, as well as advocacy, information and referral to help consumers obtain their own devices. People may try out items while they seek funding to purchase their own. AIM does not provide financial aid.

Items available to borrow from AIM include wheelchairs, walkers, Rollators, canes, crutches, ramps, grab bars, Hoyer lifts, adaptive seating, shower chairs, commodes, wander alarms, weighted items, adaptive utensils, laptops, iPads and deaf and blind/low vision technology. We also have learning aids, toys and games for early intervention, as well as pediatric equipment. 

Free delivery is available. 

AIM's TRAID Program serves Steuben, Chemung, Schuyler, Allegany, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties.
