first_imgAnne Carpenter, Social Media Intern with the INDATA ProjectOur loan library has over 2,000 products, but there is always room for more. We thought it would be a good idea to make some introductions, just so you’re familiar with all that we have to offer in our loan library. We wish you could have whatever you check out forever, but alas, others need to experience the products just like you did. So, here’s how you do it and one rule to follow:• Go to the loan library website via www.eastersealstech.como Click “Equipment Loan Library” under Do You Need Equipment?• Next, you can watch Wade tell you how to create an account and get started• Or you can click the link and do it yourself!• Once you have created an account and specified your need for a product, one of two things happen:(If you live in the Indianapolis area, you must come pick it up-If you live outside the Indianapolis area, we will mail it to you. You are responsible for mailing it back.)• Here is the only stipulation – you can only keep the product for 30 daysNow that we have the business out of the way, let’s take a look at our new babies.The Flipper Panel: This is the biggest of its kind, sporting a 12 inch screen, this enhanced vision magnifier is perfect for students who need to see the board from far way or for the average Joe who needs to read material up close. The panel has a camera that can be adjusted to any length and magnify any image. It comes in a great carrying case and costs around $2,000. (that’s why we recommend you try it first!)Ray: This little guy does a lot. If you are blind or visually imparied, attach it to the end of your cane and it will help you detect objects in your way. When the path is clear, Ray makes a low sound. When objects are approaching, Ray will make a sound that is a bit higher than when the path is clear.Switches: Our new switches give you more answering power. Both are dually equipped with separate switches, one for “on” and one for “off.” Or “yes” and “no.” Gone are the days of only one answer, you have the power of choice. One is hand-held and the other has bigger buttons more suited for larger or inanimate objects.Low-Vision Calculator: Equipped with larger buttons, an answer bar and a clear screen, this easy to read calculator is great for those of you with low-vision. The color coded buttons are easy to push with clearly displayed numbers. Perfect for those quick computations for checkbook balancing or budget making.Share this…TwitterFacebookPinterestLinkedInEmailPrint RelatedThe loan library list keeps growing!!December 20, 2011In “Easter Seals Crossroads”Accessing the INDATA Loan LibraryOctober 7, 2009In “Loan Library”What is Assistive Technology?September 30, 2009In “Testimonials”last_img
