CASE (Customised and Specialised Equipment) is rehabilitation equipment sold in highly individualised formats, according to the specific needs of the end-user. Aidacare employs a group of specialist CASE sales staff, including Rehab Engineers and a group of professional Equipment Advisors to ensure that each Aidacare customer is able to be matched with right CASE solution.
What is CASE?
CASE includes specialised manual and powered wheelchairs, seating and positioning products, specialised pressure management cushions, children’s rehabilitation equipment and any other equipment that needs to be specially selected, prescribed, sized and fitted. Each CASE solution is highly individualised and truly unique.
Can I try the equipment?
It is essential in most situations that customers have the chance to discuss their own specialised needs with their CASE consultant, and try out the equipment before making a purchasing decision. Your CASE consultant will work with your own health professionals to select the most appropriate options for trial: many options are able to be trialled for up to one week.
How much will it cost?
After trial, your CASE consultant will provide a detailed quote and specifications for your consideration. Many pieces of specialised equipment are funded by government and community agencies.
How do I know which CASE is right for me?
The process of choosing CASE is simplified at Aidacare, where our specialised sales staff and professional Equipment Consultants partner with health care professionals such as Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Rehabilitation Engineers. We work together with your team to explore options and choose individualised solutions.

RE's are trained over a three year period as part of an NHS certificated training course covering relevant disciplines and clinical training.
