MND Tasmania seeks to support its members who have MND or Kennedy's disease by improving access to essential electronic equipment.
MND Tasmania has an electronic equipment library managed by the Independent Living Centre Tasmania (ILCT). With a request from an allied health professional such as a speech pathologist or occupational therapist, this service is available for MND Tasmania members to loan essential communication and electronic equipment.
Equipment available includes:
- Communication aids such as: Surface Pro tablets with eye gaze, head tracking, or switch access technology, ipads, voice amplifiers, and lightwriters,
- Robotic feeding devices,
- Personal alarms, and
- Carer call bells.
Please discuss with your MND advisor, or allied health professional if you wish to access this support. Further information can be located on the ILCT website, HERE
