Eye Gaze Sets for MND NSW participants not eligible for NDIS now available through FlexEquip for short term loan
FlexEquip is now providing a limited number of Eye Gaze Sets for loan to MND NSW participants who are not eligible for NDIS.
Loan will be made to eligible MND NSW participants at no charge and will be available for an initial 3-month period with the possibility of extension of another 3 months if the Eye Gaze Set is being successfully used daily.
FlexEquip is not able to offer the Eye Gaze Sets for trial.
Assessment for a FlexEquip Eye Gaze Set needs to be completed by both a speech pathologist and an occupational therapist who have experience in this technology.
Referral for an Eye Gaze Set can be made through the FlexEquip Product Library and a justification report from the assessing health professionals outlining the clinical justification and the urgency is required by FlexEquip to assist with prioritization.
Provision will be managed by FlexEquip, working with specialist Assistive Technology companies, Link Assistive and Zyteq. This is a great opportunity to work with these companies to provide the best service.
This is an exciting new initiative, and we hope it can be expanded in the future.
