ACC funded equipment
Enable New Zealand is the supplier for all ACC funded rehabilitation equipment throughout New Zealand.
This means if you have been injured and have been referred by your ACC case owner to an assessor who determines you need equipment to help you with daily activities, Enable New Zealand will supply this equipment to you on behalf of ACC.
Applying for equipment
To apply for equipment, you’ll need to contact your ACC case owner who will refer you to an assessment service. If the assessor determines you need equipment to help you with daily activities, they will make an equipment request to Enable New Zealand. If ACC approves your request, we will then supply this equipment to you on behalf of ACC.
You can also request some equipment items directly through MyACC.
The equipment belongs to ACC. We lend it out, free of charge, for as long as the person needs it.
You’re welcome to contact us for more information.
Buy or hire daily living aids and equipment
If you’re not eligible for government-funded equipment, or you’d prefer to buy your own equipment, we can help.
Contact or visit our EASIE Living & Demonstration Centre in Palmerston North. You’ll find a great selection of daily living aids, devices, and equipment. Our staff can help you find what you need, wherever you live in New Zealand.
The centre also hires out walkers, wheelchairs, and mobility scooters at reasonable daily and weekly rates.
