Our ComTEC Equipment Library offers short-term loans (1-3 months) of speech-generating devices and computer access equipment for children and adults with disability. Search for what you need, generate a quote for the NDIS, and submit a referral to request a hire.

It can be challenging to know what communication technology is going to work best for a particular person, even for experienced OTs and speech pathologists! You can use the ComTEC library to trial technology before purchasing or submitting an AT request.

Our library has a range of equipment available for hire. You can click or tap on the category buttons below to explore the range. If you don't see what you are looking for, contact us and we may be able to add it to our library.
