Free clinics to assess your wheelchair and seating needs

Independent Living Specialists (ILS), in partnership with SCIA are hosting a series of wheelchair and seating clinics around the state where you can come and trial equipment.

The clinics will be held in both Sydney (including Penrith, Allambie Heights, Prairiewood and Little Bay) and the regional areas of Bathurst, Ballina, Coffs Harbour and Tamworth to ensure better access to assistive technology equipment regardless of where you live.

Independent Living Specialists is one of Australia’s largest providers of home care equipment and a leading provider of mobility and seating equipment, with one of the biggest ranges on offer to choose from.

The clinics are free and will be facilitated by an expert team of allied professionals who will assist you through the assessment process of seating and wheelchair options to help you select the best wheelchair for you.  You can attend clinics by yourself, with your family members and/or carers, or with your treating therapist.

Entering into the NDIS?

  • Attend an ILS seating clinic for a free seating & mobility assessment with an ILS allied health professional.
  • Receive a free ILS price guide for your equipment and occupational therapy assessment needs for NDIS.
  • Present this price guide at your NDIS planning meeting to assist with your budget allocation.

Already received your NDIS plan?

  • Come along to a clinic with your prescribing Occupational Therapist (if you do not have one, ILS can help to put you in touch with one as you will need an independent OT to write your NDIS report), and complete your NDIS assistive technology assessment. You will get the opportunity to trial a range of equipment and be assessed and scripted for your seating and wheelchair requirements – resulting in the submission of a detailed report to the NDIS.
  • The NDIS will review your assistive technology assessment report and advise of the outcome. 
  • Once approved, if you choose to use ILS as your equipment supplier they will facilitate the delivery of your new equipment in collaboration with your preferred prescribing therapist.
