Helping Others to Independence

TADTas is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to improving the independence, dignity and quality of life for people with disabilities. Our team has been providing Tasmanians of all ages and abilities and their families assistive technology solutions since 1998.

Children

Giving children opportunities to do as much as they can is what we like to do. If you’ve been frustrated by not being able to find the right equipment for your child, we may be able to help.

Adults

Whether it’s through illness or accident, if you face physical challenges, the right equipment may help. TADTas specialises in modifying or making equipment that is not commercially available.

Seniors

As you get older you might find you’re not able to do the things you used to be able to do. Having the right device or equipment can make all the difference.

Assistive Technology

Assistive technology includes simple devices such as those that assist in activating light switches, elevating household appliances, or turning on a tap. More advanced technologies includes modified computers or remote-control systems for air conditioners, windows, or doors.

Freedom Wheels

Freedom Wheels bicycles give children the ability to escape the confines of their wheelchairs or the limitations of their crutches. It allows them to keep up with their siblings and to feel the wind in their face.

Sports & Recreation

TADTas is keen to support people living with a disability to engage in sport and recreation of their choice. Examples of recent projects include modifications to fishing rods, billard cues, gardening and exercise equipment, lawn bowls and bocce aids, customised Freedom Wheel bikes and many more.
