Equipment Prescription

Assistive technology is a term that is commonly used for equipment and therapy aids aimed at improving functional performance and providing clients with support to reach their goals. Equipment is often customised and individual to the client needs and requires occupational therapy assessment to identify the most appropriate equipment options.

Types of assistive technology (AT)

  • Bikes and trikes (may have additional supports and carer assisted)
  • Running Frames
  • Walkers, highchairs and strollers
  • Paediatric tables and chairs (with supports)
  • Seating and positioning supports
  • Harnesses
  • Standard visual aids for improved functional performance
  • Modified computer aids
  • Adaptive technology to support self-care, bathing and feeding

In many circumstance equipment prescription is generally required for an AT Application for NDIS participants and evaluation is part of the process to obtain clinical justification and provision under the NDIS scheme. Often part of this process includes equipment trials and obtaining quotes from suppliers. If you have an equipment need identified, Grace Children’s Therapy can assist with facilitating this process and completing the AT Application report.

The basic process includes the following however, more complex items may require additional evaluation and clinical justification.

  • Assessment and evaluation of the client needs
  • Research appropriate equipment options
  • Liaison with suppliers to arrange equipment trials and quotes
  • Completion of the AT Application report
