Find answers to common questions about using Enabley. Learn how our platform connects therapists and suppliers for seamless assistive technology solutions.


Enabley is an online platform designed to streamline the process of obtaining estimates and assistive technology solutions for therapists in Australia.

It connects therapists working with clients in Aged Care, NDIS, and other beneficial schemes with a wide range of suppliers. Therapists can create detailed requests for their clients' needs, receive and compare estimates from multiple suppliers, and approve the best proposal. This ensures that clients get the most suitable and cost-effective solutions.

Suppliers benefit by gaining access to targeted requests and potential new clients, while therapists can efficiently manage their requests and fulfill their clients' needs.

Yes, Enabley is free for therapists to use. Therapists can create detailed requests, compare estimates, and find the best solutions without any cost.

For suppliers, setting up a profile and receiving requests is free. Suppliers only need to pay a small fee to unlock and respond to the requests they choose to pursue. This fee helps support the platform and ensures a high-quality experience for all users.

No, equipment is not paid for on Enabley.

Enabley facilitates the connection between therapists and suppliers, allowing therapists to create and send requests, and suppliers to provide estimates. The actual payment for equipment and services is handled directly between the therapist and the supplier, outside of the Enabley platform. This approach allows your pre-established workflows and payment processes to continue seamlessly.

Contacting Enabley Support is easy! Simply navigate to the Support section, and you'll find options to submit a support ticket. We're here to assist you with any questions, concerns, or feedback you may have.
