Equipment

If you are registered with a disability you may have funding allocated for equipment, such as part of your NDIS package. You may want to consider suitable adaptations to a bike or a specialist cycle to enhance your participation in sport and recreational activities. Such equipment options are unique to each person and therefore should be discussed with your physiotherapist.
