Adaptive Technology & Equipment

Each person is unique and has different wants and needs, so adaptive technology and equipment is best individualised for each situation.

What are some examples of adaptive equipment and technologies?

Some examples of adaptive equipment are

  • Dressing aids - can include specially tailored clothes, button-in-the-front bras, elongated shoe horns, long zipper tags, stocking aids and button sticks; basically, anything used to help you put on your clothes independently if you have dexterity issues or physical disabilities.
  • Cooking equipment - cups with two handles, knives with large or tailored grips, kettles on swings, lowered bench tops and equipment that helps you cook as independently as possible.
  • Bathing and toileting equipment - elongated scrubbers, bath chairs and raised toilet seats: anything designed to assist with independence and safety in the bathroom.
  • Entertainment, play, learning and development – including various children’s toys and specially developed computer programs and apps
  • Custom-made sporting equipment – from sports wheelchairs to custom racquet grips
  • Technology and modifications - large grip iPad cases, portable charging units and car/home modifications.


Where can I find the right adaptive equipment & technologies to meet my needs?
