General instructions

  • Make an emergency plan. For example, what to do if your wheelchair breaks down after-hours, at the weekend or on a public holiday. Talk to your EMS assessor – and to your NASC, if you use one.
  • Do not sell your equipment or give it away. It is owned by the Ministry of Health.
  • Keep your equipment clean and well looked after. You might end up paying for any repairs, otherwise.
  • Insure high cost equipment, if you can.
  • Get your equipment serviced and repaired when needed.
  • Do not make any changes to your equipment. Talk to your EMS assessor or therapist if your equipment needs changes.
