TADACT designs solutions and makes customised assistive equipment which is otherwise unavailable, to meet the needs of and assist people with disabilities of any age and older people to become more independent in their daily lives. We work closely with their carers and other organisations caring for these people.TADACT modifies commercially available equipment to make it better suit the person’s needs; offers a comprehensive equipment repair service; provides specialised technical advice; and/or refers clients elsewhere if appropriate.

At TADACT we believe every person has the right to live the best life possible. We work hard to make sure that people living with disability or who are ageing have the tools and equipment they need to live fulfilled lives and reach their full potential. We believe every child has the right to ride a bike. There’s a solution for every child in Freedom Wheels range. Positive ageing – maintaining a positive attitude, feeling good about yourself, keeping fit and healthy, and engaging fully in life – for our clients is important to us. These are the reasons why we design and make customised assistive equipment that is not available on the shelf of a store or modify commercially available equipment to make it better suit the person’s needs. TADACT is a small not-for-profit organisation that has been designing and making customised assistive equipment for more than 40 years. TADACT does this by maintaining the capability to think, design, create and modify outside of the box. TADACT assists almost 400 families per year in Canberra and the region and is the only organisation of its kind in the ACT.
