After three decades of wonderful service to Tasmanians with disability TADTas has made the difficult decision to close its doors.
The individual specialised technical solutions offered by our dedicated volunteers have struggled to find a place in the expanded NDIS environment, with a trend to larger scale providers and commercially available assistive technology. We are no longer accepting referrals for new projects from 1 January 2024.
We would like to thank the therapists and their clients for their referrals in the past and acknowledge our wonderful staff and volunteers who over the years have had such a positive impact on Tasmanian lives.
The good news is that the Tasmanian Freedom Wheels modified bike program will be continued by a partnership between our interstate sister organisation Freedom Solutions and local provider St Giles. Click the link below for more information.
And St Giles is expanding its assistive technology offerings through its Focus AT program. Contact St Giles for more information.
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.
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.
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 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 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.
