The programme for Scotland's biggest disability, rehabilitation and homecare event was announced this week as preparations continue for this important event.
Naidex Scotland will be held at the SECC in Glasgow from 18-19 September and welcomes health care professionals, retailers, manufacturers and members of the public to come and see the latest innovations in stairlift technology, wheelchair accessible vehicles, specialist disability aids for children and more. Over 100 exhibitors are lined up, and as Scotland's largest event for exhibiting products that help disabled people, over 2,600 people are expected to attend.
Naidex Scotland is held every 2 years, so the event in September is the only opportunity to see the very best in social care and independent living devices in Scotland before 2015. Sure to be an eye-opening and useful experience for healthcare professionals and those who live with mobility difficulties, tickets are free and can be obtained by registering on the Naidex Scotland website.
As well as providing a place for people to compare a wide range of safe and reliable mobility aids from a number of manufacturers, Naidex Scotland also offers people the chance to see the latest products that are being developed with innovative new technological advances. Various Scottish-based charities and professional bodies will also be at the event to give advice on disability aids and how to obtain funding for such useful devices as affordable walk in showers and mobility vehicles.
Alongside the exhibitors will be a number of organised events that will help visitors get to know more about the latest news and developments affecting the healthcare industry. A wide range of free CPD accredited seminars have been organised for the Naidex Scotland event, with keynote speakers including representatives from Handicare, and uplifting stories about how people with disabilities are enjoying fulfilling lives will be held throughout the day in the Inspiration Theatre.
Liz Virgo, director of the event, is looking forward to seeing how people respond to this year's show, and although she says that Naidex Scotland is "always an inspiring show", she also went on to say that the 2013 event "is set to be the best ever" with "something for everyone."
From independent living devices that can be taken home on the day to advice from healthcare professionals and other supportive services, those who have an interest in mobility aids and independent living are sure to find something useful at Naidex Scotland this September.
