Wisconsin Assistive Technology Program


What is WisTech?

WisTech is Wisconsin's assistive technology program funded under the AT Act of 1998, as amended (exit DHS).

WisTech provides information on selecting, funding, installing and using assistive technology.

Assistive technology (AT) is any product or device that enables people with disabilities to improve their independence and quality of life in the community, at home, at work, and at school.

AT items include commercially-made equipment, custom-made devices or common products that have been modified to serve a specific need.

WisTech is funded to provide:

Four State Level activities:
Device Loan
Device Demonstration
Device Reutilization 
Alternative Financing

WisTech uses its three-year State Plan for Assistive Technology 2012 - 2014 (PDF, 152 KB) to communicate its goals and plans to the citizens of Wisconsin and the federal Rehabilitation Services Administration.
