The Rehabilitation Appliance Program (RAP) is an Australian Government program, administered by the Department of Veterans' Affairs, which provides aids and appliances to eligible members of the veteran community to help them maintain their independence as they grow older. RAP appliances are available to Gold and White Card holders with a clinically assessed need. Aids and appliances are provided based on a referral from a Local Medical Officer, or approved health professional such as an Occupational Therapist or Physiotherapist.
