Assistive Technology Regional Centers (ATRC)

See, touch, and borrow assistive technology devices.

MassMATCH Assistive Technology Regional Centers hosted by Easterseals are lending libraries of Assistive Technology (AT). We offer device demonstrations at two locations and have an extensive lending library of devices, which includes equipment, software, and toys, from no and low-tech to high-tech solutions.

Residents of Massachusetts can visit our centers to learn about, try out, and borrow AT free of charge, for 30 days. Hundreds of devices are available in the areas of communication, education, hearing and vision impairment, and daily living. Let us know your goals and desired outcomes and our experts help bridge the gap to get you there.

MassMATCH Assistive Technology Regional Center Mobile Van

In 2022, Easterseals Massachusetts received funding from the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission to start a new initiative: The MassMATCH Assistive Technology Regional Center Mobile Van. This van allows us to get out into the community to all areas of the state to make sure people have equal access to assistive technology available. ATRC program specialists demonstrate the different devices that are available to people with disabilities, seniors, and our Veteran communities at various community events.

Like us on Facebook for updates on ATRC including upcoming webinars, mobile van demonstrations, and other events. Current events are listed on our Facebook Events page.
