New Application 2023/2024 for Aids and Advanced Instruments for Disabled Individuals or Their Families

In Lombardy, Italy, residents can access reimbursements for specific devices thanks to Regional Law 23/99, which recognizes contributions for purchasing technologically advanced aids or devices for people with disabilities or their families.

Reimbursement for Medical Devices in Lombardy

In the Lombardy region, on January 16, 2024, a new call was launched, primarily targeting people with disabilities or learning disorders, to purchase technologically advanced aids and devices to improve their quality of life.

The device must be helpful for:

  1. Enhancing the individual’s independence, especially regarding daily activities, including those at home;
  2. Improving social and work relationships, thus allowing for a better integration into society;
  3. Addressing physical and functional limitations may include motor, visual, auditory, intellectual, language, or learning disorders.

 

THE GONDOLA DEVICE THAT DELIVERS AMPS THERAPY FOR PARKINSON’S IS AMONG THE REIMBURSABLE AIDS. WANT TO SCHEDULE A VISIT? CONTACT US!

 

Eligibility for the Scheme

People with disabilities residing in the ATS territory of the Lombardy region can apply, regardless of age, as long as they have a valid ISEE (Equivalent Economic Situation Indicator) of €30,000 or less.

Furthermore, you must not have received the same grant in the previous 5 years for the same aid or tool in the same geographic area. However, if you have already benefited from the grant in the past 5 years, you can apply only if you intend to use it to replace, adapt, or improve the aid or tool previously purchased.

Funding is also available for aids and devices rented, leased, or subscribed to for short periods, provided they fall within the definition of aid as per the international standard EN ISO 9999:

“Any product, tool, equipment, or technological system, either specially produced or commercially available, intended to prevent, compensate, mitigate an impairment or disability”

The aid/device must cost a minimum of €300 and not exceed €16,000, with a grant covering 70% of the eligible expense.

The Gondola AMPS device is accepted in the scheme.

Among the technologically advanced aids and instruments reimbursed by the scheme, the Gondola medical device is also included, which provides AMPS therapy, an innovative treatment for walking disorders caused by neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s, stroke, peripheral neuropathies, and cerebral palsy.

Thanks to this scheme, many people in Lombardy have had the opportunity to equip themselves with the device to undergo therapy at home, thus regaining their mobility independence.
