What's New

Prescriber education sessions are going virtual!

Due to COVID-19, the EnableNSW prescriber education sessions are now being held via zoom. For the next three months the sessions will focus on EnableNSW SASH home modification program, prescription success for self-care and mobility equipment and a specific session for bariatric equipment.

To secure your spot for one of these sessions, email your interest to HSNSW-EAPVisits@health.nsw.gov.au. To ensure maximum engagement and to give you the best virtual experience, sessions will be kept to small groups. Visit the prescriber education page for more information. [31 July 2020]

Our stock range has been updated with two new power wheelchairs

The Equipment Allocation Program (EAP) stock range has been expanded to include the Merits Vector and Quickie Q400M. Both are tilting power wheelchairs with integrated backrests, suitable for people who do not require high levels of postural support. Where needed, a pressure cushion can be added from the stock range. Suitable for both for indoor and outdoor use, these chairs are available now.

The Q700M is now available
The QM710 has been superceded by the Q700M in the Power Wheelchair Allocation Program. To ensure this chair meets the person’s needs, a trial can be organised with a nominated supplier. The power wheelchair bases available under this program are suitable for people who need supportive seating.

All power wheelchairs in stock are available for delivery across NSW.
