Equipment and wheelchairs
NRS Healthcare provide most of the equipment you have at home to support your child’s needs.
If you notice your child’s equipment needs adjusting due to growth, or general wear and tear is affecting the use of your equipment, please contact your Therapist to assess your child’s needs.
If you notice any mechanical faults, parts missing from your equipment, or service of electrical equipment is overdue, please contact NRS who will visit your home to inspect your equipment or complete an equipment service. Please refrain from using any faulty equipment until inspection has been completed.
