Equipment Program

Follow up and Review

Follow up

Follow-up of equipment provided is mandatory to ensure that the item issued to a person meets their needs and can be used appropriately and safely. A review may be completed by phone or in person, depending on the complexity of the item provided.


Reviews are encouraged after a person has had their equipment for a period of time. It helps to identify any potential concerns with the equipment or how it is being used or if the item needs replacement. Changes such as a person’s condition, their ability to use the modifications, a change in the living situation, or deterioration of the item are addressed by these checks.

Prescribers are encouraged to undertake reviews, and identify any risks before an incident occurs.
