Assistive TechnologyCraigieburn

Assistive Technology (AT), as defined by the WHO and structured by the NDIS, provides tailored tools and devices, ranging from basic aids to advanced prosthetics, to enhance functionality and independence, with Soaring Health's occupational therapists in Craigieburn ensuring their optimal selection and customisation.

Assistive Technology

At the heart of fostering independence for those with injuries or disabilities is the innovative realm of Assistive Technology (AT). Defined by the World Health Organisation (WHO), AT comprises a broad spectrum of tailored tools, systems, and devices meticulously crafted to enhance an individual's functional capabilities. The NDIS aptly segregates this array into a four-tier system: starting with fundamental aids such as non-slip mats (levels 1 and 2), advancing to electronic enhancements (level 3), and peaking with cutting-edge, customised solutions like myoelectric prosthetics (level 4). Mobility enhancements, including custom-built wheelchairs, further underscore the versatility of AT. These devices seamlessly span tasks from basic self-care to advanced professional responsibilities. In acknowledging the transformative nature of AT, our Craigieburn-based occupational therapists at Soaring Health adopt a collaborative stance. By liaising closely with an individual's entire healthcare team, they ensure the judicious choice, tailoring, and adaptation of devices, all geared towards bolstering autonomy, augmenting functional prowess, and uplifting one's overall life quality.

In the domain of paediatric care, the advent of assistive technology and therapeutic support devices has been nothing short of revolutionary. These tools, specifically designed for children, provide invaluable aid, particularly to those with disabilities or developmental challenges. Assistive technology offers these young individuals enhanced avenues to communicate, learn, and move. Whether it's a custom wheelchair promoting mobility or a voice synthesizer facilitating communication, these innovations empower children to experience a richer, more independent life.

For children with specific disabilities, the significance of these paediatric therapeutic devices is further magnified. Each piece of technology is thoughtfully tailored to address distinct challenges, ensuring that inclusivity isn't just an ideal but a practical reality. From learning aids for those with cognitive challenges to tools that simplify everyday tasks, this wave of technological advancement embodies a dedication to ensuring every child can fully engage with their environment and optimally progress in their developmental milestones.

Healthcare funding types

NDIS

If you’re living with a disability, you’re probably familiar with the challenges of accessing the help you need. Not only can the required frequency of therapy can make paying fees unaffordable, funding provisions and onerous application processes can further delay treatment. At Soaring Health, we recognize the importance of accessing the therapeutic services you need, when you need them. As a registered NDIS provider, Soaring Health’s practitioners treat eligible participants under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). What’s more, our community coordinator and customer service team are well-versed in NDIS requirements and can help you to fast-track access to appropriate treatment.

Medicare

When you suffer chronic pain and persistent medical conditions, it can be hard to keep up with healthcare costs. Financial worries may cause you to forgo treatment that would relieve debilitating symptoms and improve your level of functioning and quality of life. At Soaring Health, we believe in removing barriers to you receiving the treatment you need. In the case of chronic pain lasting six months or more, we can provide fully bulk-billed treatment for up to five visits per year under Medicare’s Chronic Disease Management plan or CDM (formerly called an EPC), so you can access the treatment services you need, when you need them, without being out of pocket.

T.A.C

Motor vehicle injuries can vary in severity from minor to life-changing. At Soaring Health, we strive to resolve all injuries caused by transport accidents and collisions. The services available to TAC clients at Soaring Health have been purposefully selected and tailored to address the physical, mental and emotional effects of injuries caused by road trauma. Part of our dedicated community division, this program of services is also designed to relieve the financial burden of your accident and ensure that you receive the treatment you need, when you need it, without out-of-pocket fees. You can access our services through the TAC as soon as you have a claim number, meaning you can dedicate your full focus to making an efficient and satisfying recovery.

My Aged Care

Many people associate the Australian government’s My Aged Care program purely with practical assistance with daily tasks and activities. But if you’re aged over 65, you may also be able to access Soaring Health services such as physiotherapy, hydrotherapy and home services fee-free through My Aged Care provisions, to enable you to maintain or regain capacities necessary for daily living, and relieve pain and conditions that may otherwise compromise your quality of life. Depending on your circumstances, you may ask your case manager to request these services as part of your support package.

WORKSAFE

Workplace accidents causing serious injury can be devastating. One minute you’re earning a reliable income. The next you’re plagued by uncertainty over when, or even whether, you’ll be able to return to work – not to mention navigating daily life with pain and physical limitations and facing out-of-pocket medical costs or delaying necessary treatment until your claims are processed. Part of the answer to how well you’ll recover depends on receiving the treatment you need, when you need it, and having a collaborative and integrated team of healthcare professionals who can work together to optimise your recovery and support your return to work and daily life.

D.V.A

Serving to protect one's country is a significant human act, but it can lead to lasting physical and mental challenges for veterans.
