About Us

Who are we?

Sisu7 is an online store selling educational, developmental and therapeutic items for people of all ages with all types of challenges. For example, sensory issues, disability, mental health, behavioural, aged related issues, home safety, environmental and dementia.

We were created through necessity!! The occupational therapists in our partner clinic, Access Therapy Services, found it challenging not being able to find products that they recommended for clients, parents and teachers in one place. Often, they would have to spend a long time looking at different websites and suppliers to find products that would really help one of their clients.

If they found it difficult, we were sure that other people would too!

Hence Sisu7 was born; a place for all generations to find products that support a joyful life. We are dedicated to providing the best variety of sensory integration tools, occupational therapy toys and equipment to help people of all ages and abilities. Schools, homes, aged care centres and other agencies across Australia appreciate the durability and performance of our products. Although some of the items in our range look like toys, they can also be used as tools to build the functional skills of people with special needs and support sensory integration therapy.

What does Sisu7 mean?

Sisu is a Finnish word that stands for resilience, tenacity, determination, perseverance, bravery, empowerment and inner strength. It was chosen because it represents the people that our products are for. 

The people that will benefit from our products have varying abilities and challenges from physical, mental, developmental and conditions related to ageing but time and time again they demonstrate the amazing traits that Sisu stands for.

What makes us different?

  • Sisu7 has a video in the description of every product to demonstrate how to use the products and ways in which it can be used to maximise features, benefits and how to adapt it according to a person’s ability and the outcome required.
  • All our products are sourced by occupational therapists to ensure that they all have a therapeutic, educational or developmental outcome. We try to source products in Australia so that we are supporting our own economy and other small businesses. 
  • All our products have a purpose. It could be to help children in the classroom, people with a disability live independently or an older person to remain at home for longer, for example.  Our mission is to support everyone to live the best life possible using easy to source products.  
  • We care about the service we provide; we care about the products we sell but most importantly we care about how our products will make a difference to someone’s life. If you would like to talk to an occupational therapist about a product, we will not charge you. We are here to help you make the best decision when purchasing one of our products.
  • We keep it real. If you phone us, you will speak to a real person.  If you e-mail us a real person will respond.  All our products have been used in real life settings with real clients, in real situations so that we know they work.
  • We are a family owned business so when you support us you are supporting a family, our employee’s families, a drought affected regional community (because we use local businesses where possible) and helping to make real Aussie dreams come true.
