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 always stock a huge range of trial equipment so you can see, sit in, drive and understand everything about 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 8 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. If we need to build custom seating, postural supports or other components, where possible, this is done while the equipment is being built so that by the time it arrives, everything is ready to go. 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 so the client can get their equipment as quickly as possible. You can phone or email us at any stage of the process for an update.
Our complex 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, trialed and completed while everyone is present. When clients are unable to travel to our clinic, we are very happy to come to you. We are 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.
