Aids and Equipment Hire

GREAT Aids and Equipment Hire

Apollo Bay campus has a range of medical aids and specialised equipment available for hire, which can help you avoid the expensive costs associated with purchasing aids and equipment outright, particularly if they are only for short term use.

How it works

Any person may hire aids and equipment from our Apollo Bay campus as required. Simply make a booking, pay a deposit and then collect the equipment from our Apollo Bay campus. When you are finished using the equipment, please return it to our Apollo Bay campus cleaned.


It is advisable to obtain advice from your doctor, physiotherapist or occupational therapist prior to hiring and using specific items of equipment.
