ACC has a legislated responsibility for assessing a Client’s injury related needs and providing Clients who have lost a limb with an artificial limb to meet their individual needs and restore their independence to the maximum extent practicable. ACC’s Artificial Limb Service (ALS) provides such services to Clients. The typical ALS journey for a Client can be complex, may be life-long and can require a diverse range of services.
The current ALS contract is limited to the fitting and provision of an artificial limb or limbs and ongoing maintenance and repair. This procurement is an opportunity to replace the existing contract and address the wider needs of Clients who have experienced limb loss.
We intend to purchase a new Artificial Limb Service that is more responsive to Client needs and that includes the following additional services:
• support for the Client and their family/whanau before (where possible) and after the amputation, and
• peer support and community integration support options to assist with community rehabilitation.
