Device demonstrations allow individuals to compare the features and benefits of a particular Assistive Technology (AT) device. They can also give you the ability to see, touch, and try multiple devices to help in the decision-making process by providing:
- Hands-on exploration of devices
- Information on the latest technology
- Low-tech solutions and adaptations
- Vendor sources with prices
ABLE Tech has demonstration partners throughout the state and on the Oklahoma State University campus in Stillwater, OK.

Demonstration Success Story
Wren is an active and sweet two-year-old from Logan County who participates in SoonerStart. Wren was diagnosed at six months of age with Rett Syndrome. Rett Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that affects brain development—typically causing a progressive loss of motor skills and language.
Wren’s family recently visited Oklahoma ABLE Tech in Stillwater, Oklahoma, to explore assistive technology (AT) that might improve Wren’s quality of life. The family was given the opportunity to have multiple devices demonstrated—gaining hands-on experience and guidance in the use of AT.
Wren enjoyed exploring different toys and switches with the goal of finding a device(s) that would expand her independence at play. Her mom stated, “We will keep exploring AT to continue to find tools that can improve Wren’s quality of life.”
Demonstrations and short-term loans of assistive technology are available to all Oklahomans. The staff of Oklahoma ABLE Tech were pleased to assist Wren and her family, in partnership with her SoonerStart providers, to identify and lend AT that allows Wren to function more independently and to live more comfortably and joyfully.
