MonTECH: Improving Lives with Technology

MonTECH provides technology, support, and services that improve the quality of life for Montanans with disabilities.

 

Borrow assistive technologies and adaptive equipment, and receive free, supportive one-to-one training on any devices we loan.  MonTECH ships most items anywhere in Montana for free. As of January 1, 2021, MonTECH also covers the cost of return shipping!*

Who can utilize MonTECH?  Any Montanan, any age, with any physical or cognitive challenge including those associated with aging. Do you live in Montana?  If so, you qualify!

*Some loan items are too large or heavy to ship and must be picked up at our Missoula location.

 

COVID-19

MonTECH strictly adheres to CDC guidelines for the cleaning of all equipment and technologies we house. Committed to supporting physical-distancing measures, we offer curbside service for scheduled pick-ups and drop-offs of equipment. No walk-ins please.

We offer in-person appointments in Missoula and Billings, but if you’re concerned about COVID-19 or unable to travel, we also provide appointments via video call.  Don’t know how to video call? We’ll walk you through it.

Please call or write if you have questions about our COVID-19 protocols:  montech@mso.umt.edu, (406) 243-4539.
