About NovitaTech

Who we are and what we do

One thing can make all the difference to someone. At NovitaTech, we combine creative thinking and technology to enhance human capability. We love supporting people living with disability to achieve their personal goals. We listen first and ask second. That’s our client-focussed approach as we meet with adults, children, families, carers, disability workers and other organisations, and together, co-design the best leading-edge solutions for real people. Our comprehensive suite of quality products and services, enrich and enhance everyday life. We’re also flexible enough to visit our clients wherever it suits them. Trialled, tested and accredited, our tailored assistive technology ranges from off-the-shelf to custom built solutions, and from simple devices to sophisticated equipment. It all comes down to options and choice alongside easy-to-understand information.

NovitaTech provides a life-long service – it’s not about solving one challenge, one time, we’re there for every stage and every journey. We create because we care. Driven to innovate as evidence-based inventors, our knowledge and guidance grows through continuous learning and developing relationships with those who use what we make. We’re proud to facilitate life-changing experiences, by assisting individuals to move, communicate, play, learn, work, and participate in the community. This not only improves independence through access and mobility but also leads to confidence and positive social connections. Creating ways for people to live the life they imagine is our reward.

NovitaTech – Make the world fit you.

NovitaTech helps individuals to access Assistive Technology (often called AT) to help them move, play, learn and work. If you or your child have difficulty with independently or safely doing everyday tasks, there is a strong chance that the right AT will make an important difference in your life.

Who is NovitaTech

NovitaTech is an assistive technology service team of very experienced people, including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, allied health assistants, rehabilitation engineers, orthotists and technicians, skilled in supporting you with the right assistive technology.

We are very skilled in supporting you with assistive technology, which includes anything from a simple device in the kitchen like a tap turner (to make using them easier), to a powered wheelchair or computer that is controlled with your eyes (called eyegaze technology).

Our staff have specialised knowledge and skills to support kids, adults, families and carers to select, set-up and access the most appropriate assistive technology to support with mobility, communication, education and daily living.
