Acquiring and using specialist equipment that promotes more independence, safety and compliments your rehabilitation journey is an important an often complicated process.

Because we understand the functional concerns of our clients we can apply our specialised knowledge to recommend suitable equipment that enhances independence and helps make daily tasks easier.

Our extensive knowledge of different equipment and equipment providers helps us narrow down what equipment best suits your needs. This enables us to trial a smaller range of options and help you find the perfect solutions that interact with eachother effectively.

This can include:

  • Assessing and scripting a powered or manual wheel chair with appropriate seating and support systems in place, appropriate controls and belting
  • Assessing and evaluating requirements for specialised commodes
  • Assessing and evaluating requirements for specialised mattresses and beds as well as controls for the beds
  • Assessing and recommending hoists and slings based on the individual needs of the client and carer.
  • Where required, providing clinical evidence and reporting to support funding requests for complex equipment
