TasEquip provides a set range of assistive technology (equipment) to eligible Tasmanians to safely engage in basic, everyday tasks and thereby support their ongoing independence or care within our community, and also to transition home from acute care or to access required education settings.

To be eligible, clients need to have a:

  • Services Australia Health Care Card
  • Services Australia Concessions Card

and be:

  • a permanent Tasmanian resident
  • living in the community, or required for discharge from hospital and
  • ineligible for Home Care Package Level 3 or 4, Workers Compensation, MAIB, or DVA*.

The equipment range includes items such as shower chairs, walking aids, adjustable height seats, hoists, wheelchairs, and electric wheelchairs. Access to TasEquip resources is by therapist prescribing only. This is to ensure that the most appropriate equipment to meet the client’s clinical need is supplied.

* Where DVA card holders are not eligible under another scheme. DVA Health Card holders should contact DVA to check their potential eligibility.
