Where you go, what you do… and how you want to live life in the future.
Not only do your Kadia OT’s understand equipment, diagnoses and the way both of these interface with the environment, they also have a robust and behind the scenes understanding of how to get the most out of your funding.
Our therapists take time to truely understand what is important to you, and are not afraid of exploring and prescribing out of the box solutions – if that is what you need.
Electric wheelchairs are a great option to getting where you need… and want to go.
For some an electric wheelchair is their main tool to get around, whilst for others it helps them get where they need to go, so that they have the energy to do what they want when they get there.

Lightweight Manual Wheelchairs
The mid-range light weight wheelchairs can be off the shelf or scripted (designed) around you from a selection of set options.
Mid-range Manual wheelchairs help you to save energy as they are designed to help you propel yourself more easily. We can also add specialised seating options which are tailored to your needs.
If manual wheelchairs are an everyday item for you, then maximising movement and energy when using your chair is key.
With the design created around you, your unique needs and features are front and center.
In this new NDIS space, we are also seeing increasing scope for funded attachments to open up access to the world around us.
Having the right chair can help you play your best game.
Interested in your options? Give us a call to see what working together could look like for you.
Want all the flexability of a manual wheelchair, with the power and control of an electric wheelchair?
Power Assist may be for you. With so many different types on the market, finding the right one is important so that you have the power and controls that work for you.
Standing wheelchairs can mean being able to reach those books high up on the shelf, presenting publicaly behind that lectern, reaching for tools in the workshop or preparing meals.
With wheelchairs that range from a semi-sit to a full stand and recline, there is a multitude of ways to be able to assist you to reach your next goal.
Feeling invisible, or having people talk ‘down’ to you, struggling to be seen at the butchers counter – or frustrated when trying to buy a beer…
made difficult because you are in a wheelchair…
This can be one of the most frustrating things many wheelchair users experience.
If this is your experience, we encourage you to talk to your therapist today to find out what is available for you.
The team at kadia get particularly excited when we have the opportunity to work with someone to get into the ‘messy’ of life…
Such as getting around the family farm, going hiking with friends, tending to the horses in the paddocks, managing stairs and curbs in the city landscape.
What ever your reality looks like, there is a seating and mobility solution for you.
If short distances are not an issue for you, but those long distances end up with you saying ‘no’ to getting out and about, then a scooter may be for you.
With scooters of all shapes, sizes, motors and purposes the choice can be overwhelming.
Finding the scooter that will serve you well now, and in the future is the key.
Need support to use a scooter? No need to worry, there are options out there to suit you too.
Community Access Training
Getting out and about can really open up your world. But, learning to navigate this space can be tricky when it feels like you have 101 things to consider.
By working with your OT, you will be able to map out clear routs to travel – and learn all the hacks and tricks you need to know to navigate this space.
Options and Training = Confidence and Control!
Electric Mobility Aid Transportation
It’s not just about having the right mobility support to get around in your day to day activities, it is also important to be able to get your wheelchair or scooter to all the places that you want to go.
Is the beach, the shopping center, the family farm or somewhere else out of reach for you at the moment?
If so, give us a call to see how we can help.
Wheelchairs are so much more than just helping you get from A to B.
With the right set up and modifications, your wheelchair can also help you bridge the gap between what you want to do and what you can do.
