Neurological Physiotherapy in the home and community
Active Edge Physio has over 3 years of community based experience working with adults living with neurological disabilities who receive NDIS funding. We are a trusted provider that pride ourselves on the quality and detail in our assessments, intervention and NDIS report writing particularly in the context of complex disabilities.
We are involved with clients throughout inner and outer Melbourne, working with Support Coordinators and Local Access Coordinators to help our clients achieve their goals.
Working with our clients to develop their independence
We work towards our client’s goals as outlined in their NDIS plans, create service agreements and request a variety of Assistive Technology (AT) equipment for our NDIS participants.
Some examples of assistive technology that our physiotherapists prescribe include the Philips Respironics Cough Assist E70 Machine, Nippy Clearway, Non Invasive Ventilation, Power Wheelchairs, Ceiling Hoists and Standing Machines.

The hourly rate we charge for our services is set by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), the Australian government organisation that is responsible for managing the NDIS.

How to get started
NDIS Frequently Asked Questions
We have over 3 years experience working with NDIS clients. During that time we have found that seeing a client’s full plan helps us to achieve better outcomes together.
Seeing your plan helps us to:
- Understand your prioritised goals and the available supports
- Discuss openly what we can achieve with the available resources
- Support you to engage other services so that you get the most out of your funding
- Communicate clearly with your providers and support networks
- Write accurate reports to help you get the funding you require in future NDIS plans
- Request funding for areas of unmet need
- Reduce hours spent asking you for information about your plan
We understand that it is your choice as to whether you choose to share your plan. We respect your right to choose who you share your plan with. Please be assured that we do not access any funding outside the services that the you have engaged us to provide.
We understand if you do not want to share all sections of your plan. There are some areas we require in order to process a referral. This includes:
- Your current address
- Plan dates
- Plan goals
- A snapshot of the Capacity Building Budget
Active Edge Physio invoice travel to appointments in a client’s home or within the community, and from the last client of the day in 5 minute increments at our standard hourly rate. We bill a maximum of 30 minutes to the client, and 30 minutes from the client at the rates stipulated in the NDIS Price Guide.
Where a therapist travels to provide services to more than one client in the same geographical area, the therapist will apportion travel time between clients equally.
Travel charges can vary week to week as it depends on where a therapist’s previous client is, how many clients are booked, whether there are cancellations, and a number of other factors. Our team prioritises scheduling appointments to minimise travel costs.
We will organise an appointment for you in the first instance. Following our initial assessment, our recommendations and a service agreement will be created and circulated to you, your support coordinator and plan manager. Our service agreement outlines the physiotherapy support to be provided under your NDIS plan and how much funding has been allocated.
