In order to carry out daily activities easier, safer and more effectively, certain devices, systems or designs can have a profound impact for individuals with different access needs. Assistive technology can be anything ranging from help opening taps through to more complex computing or technology.

To achieve greater independence and safety, there are a number of assistive technologies that offer simple solutions to every day activities. As every individual interacts with their environment differently, we can help you find the right solutions that make daily tasks safer and easier – whilst also ensuring they help you achieve more independence.

If you are an NDIS participant, we provide assessments that determine the level of assistive technology you can access. This ranges from Basic Assistive technology, through to Complex assistive technology. Talk to us to learn more about Assistive Technology and the NDIS. 

Assistive technology can include:

  • Aids for daily living activities for example dressing aids, modified cutlery, utensils and crockery, personal hygiene aids, pencil holders.
  • Computer and technology adjustments for example adjustable desks, software and hardware options for computer access
  • Seating and positioning for example wheelchair seating systems, pressure cushions and mattresses, positioning belts and braces.
  • Mobility aids for example power and manual wheel chair assessment and provisions, modification of vehicles for travel with a mobility aid.
