A therapist needs to confirm if this is reasonable and necessary due to your disability.

Our Process

The following diagram summarises the process we use to help you obtain funding through the NDIS for adaptive tricycles. We help many people - why not you or those you love/support?

EveryBody eBikes process diagram
01      Talk to your support coordinator or LAC and therapist and your family.
02      Contact EveryBody eBikes to discuss options.
03      Organise a trial - in shop or onsite at your home, clinic or park. 
04      EveryBody eBikes generates a summary quote for your therapist based on agreed recommendations - this includes the trike and any adaptations, customisations and modifications required for your individualised needs.
05      Your therapist, usually OT, Physio or Exercise Physiologist makes the submission to apply for NDIS funding. Reasonable and Necessary criteria apply and the therapist prescribes the solution.
06      You wait to hear the outcome from NDIS. This takes a variable amount of time depending on your goals, circumstances and of course the submission.
07     If successful, we build your bike or trike and arrange supply.

But we try and do as much as we can to give you the best chance of success of getting your electric trike funded by NDIS!

Understanding Assistive Technology (AT) and the NDIS

Electric tricycles can be funded through the NDIS. Ask us how.

The NDIS funding participants receive differs for everyone and is determined by how disability affects the individual and what supports are needed to reach the individual’s goals. For many NDIS participants, assistive technology (AT) is required to help complete day-to-day activities, such as travelling around within the community.

Riding with your friends

Being able to do everyday activities which are age-appropriate, offer opportunities for skills development and are fun is a fundamental right of passage. What parent or carer doesn't want their child to be able to join in? Did you know there are so many options for NDIS participants who can learn to ride independently, can ride with a person alongside or behind, or can ride on a bike which carries more than one, a passenger trike? We have all these options. It is our speciality.

Reasonable and necessary for community access and social participation

Funding for AT is allocated within your capital supports NDIS budget and can be accessed to purchase equipment required to help achieve your goals and enjoy a fulfilling life such as an ebike, an electric tricycle or a special needs tricycle.

The range of bike and trike AT is extensive and what suits your needs is usually determined in association with your OT or Physio. We can help the process by highlighting any new options, range or modifications which may make the AT more appropriate, suited and safe for you, the rider. Electric tricycles can be funded through NDIS if they are considered reasonable and necessary. They are funded as Assistive Technology.
