A System of Technology to Achieve Results

A System of Technology to Achieve Results (STAR) is located within the Minnesota Department of Administration. STAR's mission is to help all Minnesotans with disabilities gain access to and acquire the assistive technology they need to live, learn, work and play. The Minnesota STAR Program is federally funded by the Department of Health and Human Services, Administration For Community Living in accordance with the Assistive Technology Act of 1998, as amended (P.L. 108-364).

Device Demonstration

Device demonstrations allow consumers to compare features and benefits of a particular device or category of devices. Learn more or schedule a device demo here.

Device Loan

Device loans help users borrow a device for a time of need or to "try before they buy." Short-term and open-ended loans are available. To request a loan, start here.

Device Exchange

STAR maintains an online device exchange, allowing Minnesotans and others to donate, sell, and buy previously owned but still usable assistive technology.


STAR is committed to promoting the reuse of assistive technology. Reuse occurs whenever a device that is no longer needed is sold, donated, refurbished or passed along.
