The ATXchange.org is a website designed to facilitate transactions between residents of Michigan exchanging, donating, or selling used assistive technology (AT). Any used/open box device that assists a person with a disability to live more independently or safely (assistive technology) may be submitted. Sellers create listings for a wide variety of used AT; wheelchair accessible vehicles, wheelchairs, walkers, hospital beds, and electronic tablets are just a few examples.
Paul purchased a used iPad off of the ATXchange.org site to use for classes this fall semester at Oakland County Community College. He shared that because of his disability, he has difficulty typing and writing by hand, but knew there were apps he could download onto the iPad and use to take notes for classes. Paul also shared that he couldn’t afford to buy a new iPad and was thankful to buy a more affordable used one off of the ATX.
