Naidex National, the largest independent-living event in the UK, has announced its programme for the 2014 show, which will include a new zone dedicated to the College of Occupational Therapists (COT), around 300 exhibitors and talks from Handicare on moving and handling people with mobility difficulties. As always, the Tomorrow’s World section will showcase new products that improve independent living for people, which could be anything from innovative stairlifts to new walking aids and much more.
The reputation of Naidex National has helped to make the show the biggest of its kind in the UK, and healthcare professionals, manufacturers of independent-living aids and members of the public regularly attend in their thousands to find out more about the products and services that are available to help people live independently. The show is continuing to develop after 40 years of running and the announcement of its 2014 programme is sure to interest the 10,000 people that are expected to head to the event.
The partnership between Naidex and the COT will be extended for the 2014 programme to create the new dedicated COT Zone, which will include two theatres, 'meet-the-expert' sessions, workshops and student-focused seminars. Occupational therapists are experts in adapting accommodation to suit certain illnesses, conditions and mobility difficulties, so the area will be extremely useful for those who are unsure whether or not to install an aid such as a stairlift or full-length walk in bath.
The Car Zone will be bigger than ever with a dedicated outside area for testing wheelchair-accessible vehicles and there will be plenty of opportunity to talk to experts about independent living. Tomorrow's World is expected to be as popular as ever and the Market Place will provide a great place to talk to exhibitors, purchase smaller independent-living aids and find out more about a range of leisure services.
