Cooloola Coast Medical Transport

New Computers
Cooloola Coast Medical Transport (CCMT) was formed in 2003 when a small group of community minded residents of Tin Can Bay realised the need to assist the frail and aged residents of the Cooloola Coast with non- urgent medical transport to specialist medical centres and hospitals in Gympie, Nambour, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Maryborough and Hervey Bay. There is no suitable public transport linking the Cooloola Coast to the medical centres.

Royal Society for the Blind (RSB)

Vision Assessment
Until now the paediatric optometrist at the RSB has used a black and white eye chart board (with pictures where an adult would read letters) to assess vision impaired children.

This project would utilise ToAD and Tadpole Assessment Kits (software) and an iPad which can measure a child’s functional vision or visual skills development.
