About us

Our history


Our names are John and Tess and our inspiration to open Adaptive Equipment is our own journey of when life does not go to plan. Our twin boys were born at 27 weeks, resulting in one child having a diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy.

We understand that living with or supporting a family member or loved one with an injury or condition is busy, stressful and sometimes overwhelming.

Therapy and Daily Living leaves little time and energy to spare. When Equipment or devices are suggested, you often have limited knowledge of where to source or which assistive device to choose. That is why we founded Adaptive Equipment to help with these choices while you maintain choice and control. It is also important to us to provide modern options and fun colours so your Adaptive Equipment can suit your personality not just your needs.

We want to provide a service to our community providing empathy and solutions for all to access the equipment they need.

From our family to yours
