Assistive technology is an essential means by which individuals with disabilities can perform functions that might otherwise be difficult or impossible. Some examples include mobility aids, iPads, and physical modifications within the home, such as ramps and grab bars.

 

NDIS Australia set out guidelines and categorisations for the product risk. They are placed in a high, mid and low category of risk. A powered wheelchair, for example, is placed in the high-risk category as it is recognised as complex assistive technology.

 

For more information on this classification, visit Assistive technology product risk table | NDIS to evaluate the table found on this webpage.

 

If individuals fit the plan criteria, assistive technology is worthwhile when putting together an NDIS plan. The NDIS is committed to building a sustainable and empowering approach to assistive technology in the NDIS community.

Our therapists at Connect2Care strive to enrich all participants’ lives and provide the most appropriate assistive technology to improve independence and quality of life.
