NDIS Exercise and Physiology Services
The relationship between NDIS and Exercise Physiology Services may not be clear to everyone, so let us explain how we can help.
What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) [https://www.ndis.gov.au/about-us.html] provides funding for support and services for Australians aged under 65, who have permanent and significant disability.
The aim of the NDIS is to provide support for those affected by disability to build skills and capability so that they can participate in the community, as well as in employment.
The NDIS allows services for exercise and physical activity via Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) and Personal Trainers (PTs).
Longevity Exercise Physiology has been servicing NDIS clients for several years; however, with the recent changes to NDIS categorisation, you or someone you know may now be able to utilise Longevity’s services.
What is NDIS Exercise physiology?
Being a registered provider for the National Disability and Insurance Scheme (NDIS), under the Improved Health and Well-being section for people with a permanent disability, Longevity’s Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) provide exercise-based services for those whose disabilities impact upon their daily lives.
How do Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) help NDIS Participants?
Accredited Exercise Physiologists provide services under the NDIS to help improve the Health and Wellbeing of disabled individuals in the Capacity Building Budget.
AEPs evaluate, design, and deliver safe and effective exercise interventions for those whose permanent disabilities impact their ability to perform daily tasks and activities.
What Type of NDIS Participants Do Our Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) help?
AEPs are university-qualified allied health professionals with the knowledge and skills to design, deliver and evaluate effective exercise interventions for people with disabilities.
As an example, AEPs can help people with progressive neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and motor neurone disease.
They also help those with traumatic or acquired brain injury, spinal cord injury, autism, chronic fatigue syndrome and Down syndrome – just to name a few.

Changes to NDIS in 2019

What do the NDIS changes mean for you?
These changes mean that Longevity Exercise Physiology is now able to treat more NDIS patients to improve the health and quality of life of more NDIS participants across our 5 locations in Edgecliff, Lindfield, Randwick, Marrickville, and Drummoyne.
Similarly, these changes allow greater opportunity for NDIS participants to access services that help to optimise their health outcomes.
