Assistive products for personal care and safety are any devices that improve the independence of those living with a disability by making everyday tasks easier.
Not only do they make it easier to perform tasks such as showering, opening jars, walking, hearing and more, but they also make these tasks safer to undertake. This reduces the risk of injury and enhances the number and types of activities individuals with disabilities can participate in.
While all assistive technologies can be considered important, the NDIS prioritises some as being more essential to care than others. These can include:
- Assistive products for hearing such as hearing aids
- Assistive products for vision such as braille printers and text-to-voice software
- Personal mobility equipment including walkers, scooters and wheelchairs
- Specialised household furniture such as bathroom and toileting equipment
- Beds and pressure care mattresses
- Personal alarms
- Transfer equipment and more.
This is not to say there is no funding for less well-known items. The NDIS also makes allowances for a host of other assistive products and technologies from nappies to food pumps, can openers and dressing tools.
Assistive devices for physical disabilities cover a wide range of cleverly designed tools that aid the user in performing everyday tasks.
This may include items such as a shower chair that allows the individual to perform this personal care task more independently or something more involved such as an electric wheelchair.
Even a reacher-grabber tool can be counted as an assistive device. So long as the item is designed to simplify a task or make it safer for someone with a disability, it can be counted as an assistive device.
The uses of assistive technology for persons with disabilities can vary greatly. From something as simple as making it easier to open a jar to software that enables communication, there is much that assistive technology can do.
Assistive technology can make it possible for individuals to live more independently, pursue study or employment opportunities or travel with confidence. Barriers presented by disability can be greatly reduced thanks to assistive technology and autonomy and quality of life greatly enhanced.
How much funding you can receive from the NDIS towards assistive products depends on the level of disability you have and the type of support you need. When making a request for funding for assistive technology and products, you will need to demonstrate the needs for these and in some instances provide quotes for these items for approval.
At HealSoul, we offer a free consultation regarding funding for assistive products and can help you make sense of what you can and cannot claim in line with your circumstances. This can save you up to $600 in fees and allow you to access essential living aids and assistive technology sooner.
