We offer two week free-of-charge trials for a selection of our products (a full list can be found below). Please contact us to make a request to borrow equipment. Waiting times can vary greatly depending on demand. Our preference is that the contact person is a therapist, in some cases direct loans can be made to families and individuals. The contact person will receive an email when the required device becomes available. We will email a loan form that needs to be signed and returned to us, after which we will arrange delivery. The costs for returning the equipment to Link Assistive must be paid by the person loaning the equipment.
