Each year, the Custom Designed Equipment Service produces over 1,000 assistive devices that allow people with disabilities to maximise their opportunities and live their lives more fully. These devices are designed to address the client's particular circumstances.
Volunteers construct assistive devices that are not 'commercially accessible' or customise 'commercially accessible' devices to suit a client.
To see the type and range of equipment that the CDE Service can make for individual people with disabilities, have a look at TADaid 2009. Our devices are used in all aspects of life, including personal care, mobility, seating and posture, daily living, work, eduction, computing and recreation.

Clinics are held in regional NSW and Sydney for assessments. The easy to order items can be trialled at these clinics and we can show you how to customise them (for example size adjustments). Please see our Assessment Clinic Schedule and call to discuss your needs and location.
