Aids and Equipment Hire

Assistance when you need it

About Aids and Equipment Hire

Otway Health has a range of medical aids and specialised equipment available for hire, which can help you avoid the expensive costs associated with purchasing aids and equipment outright, particularly if they are only for short term use.

How it works

Any person may hire aids and equipment from Otway Health as required. Simply make a booking, pay a deposit and then collect the equipment from Otway Health. When you are finished using the equipment, please return it to Otway Health cleaned.
