Disability affects most people in our community. It can be caused at birth, illness, accident or eventually, old age.

TADSA offers a unique service, providing one-off solutions to help people with disabilities. Our dedicated band of technical volunteers design, make or modify equipment not readily available, to suit individual needs.


Dressage Letters for Blind Person

Dressage Competing

Being vision impaired has not held back this rider who enjoys competing in Dressage events with Riding for the Disabled.  To do this however, "Jill" needed individual people at designated spots in the equestrian dressage area to call out the appropriate letters.  This system would then guide her through the event.  It was however, a very cumbersome procedure.

Wheelchair Ladder

Joe Tieste with Wheelchair Ladder

"Jim" is a young lad with cerebral palsy and needed help getting in and out of his chair.  Using drawings provided by TADNSW and modifications to suit Jim's chair, this device was made by TADSA.  Removable wheels were also fitted to make it easier to move around.
