Essential Client Information

TasEquip is a state-wide equipment scheme that has warehouses in all regions.

TasEquip provides a defined range of assistive technology to eligible Tasmanians to improve their capacity to safely engage in basic, everyday tasks, to transition home from acute care or to access mandated education settings.

TasEquip provides equipment options for eligible clients who require equipment to support basic, everyday tasks which cannot be met by a non-assistive equipment solution and do not have access to alternative funding sources to support  them in their immediate home environment or at school (Equipment Library).

TasEquip operate under a refurbishment model and not all items will be new when issued.

Access to TasEquip resources is only through prescription by an authorised prescriber.  Clinical priorities apply, and there is a funding cap for new equipment purchases.
