Upcoming event to showcase transformative assistive equipment for disabled children

The exhibit showcases devices and services for kids and youths with additional needs, their households, carers and the specialists who support them.

Supporting kids with disabilities in their transition to ending up being young adults and ensuring they have the ideal devices and services to alleviate that shift will be among the crucial subjects at a large exhibit organised by charity Disabled Living in March.

More than 100 exhibitors and 1,200 visitors are expected to go to the Kidz to Adultz Middle exhibit at Coventry Building Society Arena on 17 March 2022.

Exhibitors will be offering expert suggestions and assistance on subjects consisting of mobility, financing, seating, beds, communication, continence, sensory, shift, education, housing, work, available cars, transport, style, sports, leisure and more.

” We have actually seen great development of this occasion at Coventry Building Society Arena and after one year away due to the pandemic we are delighted to be back.

” While the market has pivoted where possible to digital throughout the pandemic, it is clear that families, carers and professionals are desperate to get back to in-person events.

A thorough free program of CPD certified seminars will be held at the exhibit, covering topics consisting of toileting problems, autism, shift, seating and more.

In 2020, Disabled Living launched a virtual exhibit called Venue to Virtual due to continuous coronavirus restrictions at the time, which prevented physical events from going on.

Carmel continued: “A huge problem facing the industry is that for 2 years this type of physical testing has actually been largely difficult and therefore thousands of children have not been able access the devices they require during the transition duration to being a young person.

Organisers of the Kidz to Adultz Middle exhibition say this will be one of the very first opportunities considering that 2020 to try equipment and get a feel for if it is right for a member of the family or young person took care of.

Carmel Hourigan, Senior Manager of the Kidz to Adultz group at Disabled Living, said: “It is wonderful to be back hosting physical events and returning to the Midlands for the very first time in two years. Over the course of pandemic the needs of countless children with specials needs across the Midlands have actually changed so this years event will have even more resonance.

” You can constantly get suggestions over the phone but its crucial to in fact see devices and have the ability to check it. If you are buying a bed for a kid who has spastic paralysis, you need to make certain they can fit, be pleased and are safe in that bed. You can not do that virtually.”
