When you need help with everyday tasks, you can use Assistive Technology to make it easier to do things and/or keep you (and others) safe.

Assistive technology is any device, system or design, that allows you to perform a task that you would otherwise be unable to do. Assistive technology can increase the ease and safety with which a task can be performed.

Assistive technology can include simple products such as those that assist you to open a jar or bottle, or turn a tap or open a door. Complex technologies can include specialised computers, powered wheelchairs, home automation and environmental control systems.

Commonly, Assistive Technology:

Enhances participation and independence in daily activities including showering, dressing, washing, cooking, gardening and community access
Enhances mobility through the use of walking aids, mobility scooters, shower chairs, toilet seat raisers, wheelchairs, electric lift recliner chairs, bed mobility items and electric beds
Improves health and safety through environmental control systems, mobile or ceiling hoists and
pressure relieving cushions and mattresses.
For NDIS participants, there are different levels of Assistive Technology. They are:
Basic Assistive Technology – Level 1
Standard Assistive Technology – Level 2
Specialised Assistive Technology – Level 3
Complex Assistive Technology – Level 4.
Details relating to Assistive Technology will be listed in the Capital budget of your NDIS plan.
