The total number of device borrowers should equal the total number of short-term device loans reported by primary purpose in Item A. You must be able to categorize borrowers to report them in this table as there is no option for "unable to categorize" or "other".

C. Length of Short-Term Device Loans
What is the length of a short-term device loan, as established by your statewide AT program's policies not including extensions. Please report the length in calendar days. If your policy/procedures establish a range, use the midpoint.
Length of short-term device loan, in days
D. Types of Devices Loaned
Enter the number of devices that were loaned, by type of device. For guidance on how to categorize devices, refer to the "General Instructions." The number of devices loaned may exceed the number of loans reported above in Item A, since a loan may include more than one device.

Provide at least one anecdote about an individual who benefited from this activity. For guidance on information to include in the anecdote, please see the General Instructions.
A mother came in for a demonstration for communication devices for her daughter. While at the resource center, the girl got on the Chariot which is a bike with arm pedals. The girl had one arm that was contracted towards her chest, but she needed to stretch that arm forward to keep the bike from going in circles. The mother borrowed the Chariot for several loan periods and said her daughter loved riding the bike like the other kids. She said that as a result of using her arms to pedal, her daughter’s arm was straightening and becoming stronger. Her daughter is now more independent with other activities as a result of being able to use her arm more.
