The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding to eligible people with a disability to gain more time with friends and family, greater independence, access to new skills, jobs, and an improved quality of life.
The NDIS now supports over 500,000 Australians with disability to access the services and supports they need.
Xtracare Equipment has been a registered provider with the NDIS since its rollout and has worked with many clients, their families, therapists and NDIS support coordinators to help select the ideal assistive technology for their needs. We supply all manner of assistive technology from basic daily living aids through to more complex equipment but our expertise lies specifically with custom built equipment such as:
- Custom manual wheelchairs
- Custom power wheelchairs
- Custom shower chairs
- Professional sports wheelchairs and equipment
- Seating and positioning aids
- Pressure management aids
- Paediatric rehabilitation and mobility products
We have access to leading industry brands from around the world, but with no ties to any particular one. This enables us to help find the best equipment for each individual’s needs and lifestyle without bias. We stock a large range of trial equipment so you can see and try the equipment we are recommending.
We are a South Australian family owned and run business with a team of staff who all share a passion to assist individuals living with complex needs. Our complex equipment team have many years of practical experience and training. Their product knowledge and hands on skills enable them to problem solve any situation they are presented with.
Our job is to identify each individual’s requirements and goals and match them perfectly with the appropriate equipment. This involves a full assessment of physical, functional and lifestyle needs, demonstration and trial of suitable options, and once decided, a measure up to complete the equipment prescription. This includes seating, backrests and other postural supports, custom modifications and accessories. Once the equipment has been approved, custom equipment is built to order, which can take anywhere up to 16 weeks. Finally, after the equipment arrives, all components are assembled and a final fitting is arranged to ensure the equipment is perfectly adjusted to the client’s needs. We understand it can be a long process from the start to finish so our aim is to be as prompt as possible at every step. You can phone or email us at any stage of the process for an update.
Our equipment and seating clinic, along with our showroom and workshop is located at 622 Regency Rd Broadview. You can enter our carpark from Regency Rd or Moresby Ave. We have equipment to support safe transfers and complete a full hands-on assessment where required. Our workshop is onsite to ensure all manufacturing and modifications can be done, trialled and completed while everyone is present. When clients are unable to travel to our clinic we’re able to travel to them. We’re also able to attend outreach clinics across the state and even complete prescriptions over the phone in consultation with a local therapist in more hard to reach places.
