Technical Aid to the Disabled (SA)

For nearly 40 years, Technical Aid to the Disabled (SA) Inc (TADSA) has been designing and building equipment that has not been available commercially for people with disability, the aged and carers. The devices built by TADSA’s inventive volunteers improve the quality of life for clients, whether they are in care or live independently. TADSA also assists clients to enter or return to work, study, recreation or sport through the equipment it builds. Now entering its 40th year, TADSA has changed its name to Technology for Ageing and Disability (SA) Inc.

The inclusion of Ageing in the name reflects the 30% of projects TADSA undertakes for older South Australians every year, and this figure will only increase as the population ages. The change from Disabled to Disability reflects the decreasing use of the word disabled in the community. TADSA’s address, phone number, website address, email addresses and acronym will remain the same. Anyone who has an issue related to disability or ageing that they would like help in addressing, can contact the TADSA office on 08 8261 2922, by This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
