National Equipment Database Tip #1 – Creating Shortlists

The National Equipment Database (NED) is a website resource developed by the Independent Living Centres Australia. NED is designed to provide you with impartial, unbiased information about Assistive Technology and equipment options across Australia. This is the first in a series of tips to make searching and sharing information from NED even easier.

Tip number 1 is on making shortlists. Your shortlist is where you can narrow down the products that fit your needs best. You can compare products by selecting them and then pressing the compare button for that category.
