Equipment Prescription

Increasing Independence and Safety 

Occupational Therapy Equipment & Support

Assistive Technology can transform lives.

 

Assistive Technology (as known as specialised equipment) can help increase independence, manage fatigue, reduce risks, support pressure care and provide access to the community.

 

Assistive Technology prescription can be performed by your KiddOTherapist and begins with a formal evaluation and assessment. During assessment we examine your child's range of motion, joint flexibility, muscle length and skeletal alignment, skin integrity, pressure concerns, mobility, function, cognition and safety. This information will guide appropriate equipment options.

 

Once you have found the best fit for your child and family, your occupational therapist will complete the necessary reports for NDIA approval.
