NDIS – National Disability Insurance Scheme
If you have a disability, you may be able to apply to a Government body to access funding or funding assistance for a mobility equipment:
- CAEATI – Queensland Heath (ask your OT)
- Department of Veterans Affairs
- Submission of applications by an Occupational Therapist [OT]
The CAEATI funding process is expected to end soon with the introduction of the NDIS: National Disability Insurance Scheme.
The Community Aids Equipment and Assistive Technology Initiative (CAEATI) funding is part of the Queensland Government Medical Aids Subsidy Scheme (MASS).
We are able to provide trial rides to ensure that the equipment is compatible to your needs. We can then follow through with your occupational therapist in specifying and quoting on the equipment for you.
You can find more information on the following link: https://www.health.qld.gov.au/mass/community-access/
With reasonable notice we can arrange a suitable trial time whether it is a week day or a weekend.
If you have any questions, please contact us and we will do our best to answer or find the answer for you.
CAEATI/MASS Current subsidy amounts
As of November 2015 Funding is capped at $10,000 per client for a period of 3 years. The scheme allows funding towards the cost of a registered therapist to assist the client with the application process ($500 maximum per application up to a maximum of $800 every 3 years). More detail is provided in the CAEATI Guidelines (PDF, 296kB).
We have had many people here that would not have thought a recumbent would work for them. Recumbent trikes are not just for the young and fit who want to have fun.
Recumbents provide an excellent platform for someone with a special need to start thinking what is possible …so it doesn’t end here! Use your imagination and ask questions.
Maybe something hasn’t been done before but the imagination is a very powerful thing. Even if you can’t think of the how, at least mention to someone what you would like to be able to do and get a couple of imaginations working together.
