NDIS Registered Supplier
First Aid Distributions is proud to be a registered NDIS supplier. We specialise in medical consumables and having many years’ experience in wholesale first aid supplies, we are the chosen supplier for many organisations. Our customers are located across the whole of Australia and thanks to our friendly shipping policies, we can provide a service no matter how remote you are.
We’re proud to be associated with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). This worthy cause provides funding for support and services for what is anticipated will eventually be around 460,000 Australians below the age of 65 who have permanent and significant disability.
What is the NDIS?
The NDIS is about freedom of choice, allowing those with a disability to have better choice and control over the support they receive. It’s a new and innovative way of providing those that are eligible with support that is tailored to their unique needs, goals, and aspirations.
As an insurance scheme, NDIS adopts a lifetime approach by investing in people with disability in the early stages of their life with a goal of improving the outcome of their later life.
The NDIS helps a person with a disability to:
- Live as normal a life as possible by helping them to access mainstream services and supports including the education and health system, public housing, justice, and aged care
- Integrate into their local community by giving them access to libraries, sports clubs, community groups and charities
- Maintain informal support from family members, friends, and social support systems
- Receive necessary and reasonable funded supports related to their disability which allows them to live an ordinary life and achieve their goals
What exactly does the NDIS fund?
The NDIS funds reasonable and necessary supports that are related to your particular disability and which help you to achieve your goals and aspirations across a range of areas including;
- Daily living
- Lifelong learning
- Health and wellbeing
- Social and community participation
- Choice and control
First Aid Distributions is pleased to play a role in supplying a wide range of medical supplies and equipment to NDIS clients and their families to help make their daily routines less of a struggle and make it easier for them to live more active and independent lives.

Our range of assistance aids is designed to make life that little bit easier. Some of our best selling products include:
The Handybar Max User Weight. This fits most vehicles with no modification necessary. Approved by doctors and health professionals, and with an ergonomic grip, it makes it so much easier to get in and out of a car.
Bassett Back Support – This is a lightweight backrest designed for use in cars, wheelchairs, and normal chairs. It features a curved frame with an open mesh that supports the back. Two upright metal bars to the rear give additional stability.
Cushion diffuser – This is a premium density pressure-relief cushion. Made from memory foam it has a special inner core of heavy density traditional foam. It’s ideal for use in normal chairs and wheelchairs.
Our continence products help manage the symptoms of poor bladder and bowel control. They can be used in the short term if you're being treated or long term if your bladder and bowel problems are untreatable.
Our top-quality continence products include absorbent pants and pads, absorbent bed sheets and chair covers, penile sheaths and external catheters. Other products to help with toileting include urinals and bedpans which can be used if you’re confined to bed.
To complement these products we also stock a range of gloves, protective barrier creams, solutions and lubricants and wipes.
Things to consider when choosing your continence products include your individual bladder or bowel problem, your individual lifestyle, your mobility, disposal, and any washing guidelines. Don't worry, our friendly First Aid Distributions team will be only too happy to help you with your choice.
Our supplemental nutritional drinks and meal replacements can be useful for people who don’t have much of an appetite, have problems chewing their food, trouble preparing a balanced meal, or who are recovering from illness or surgery.
Our tasty drinks provide a healthy balance of protein, carbohydrate, and fat and are available in many delicious flavours including apple, banana, chocolate, citrus, cranberry, lime, orange, raspberry, pear, watermelon, vanilla, orange and more besides.
Our 185 ml meal replacements come in three exciting flavours – chocolate, apple berry or iced coffee and are all gluten-free and low cholesterol. If you really can't stomach the thought of a properly cooked meal, then these are an excellent alternative in the short term.
Personal protective equipment
