New Assistive Technology Publication Launches
At this weeks Naidex tradeshow I bumped into David Russell who is the publisher of a new magazine:
AT Today, a new publication focussing on developments in the world of Assistive Technology has been published for the first time and is free to access online.
Published in partnership by the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) and The Homecare Industry Information Service (THIIS), AT Today is designed as a resource for professionals working in the marketplace. The magazine is being distributed both as a traditional ‘hard copy’ version and also made available online, where visitors to the site can read it on screen using a simple page turner system or download a PDF version.
There’s a wide variety of content in the first issue, from the most sophisticated new products and research to the simplest new items around. The plan is for AT Today to cover the whole spectrum of the latest Assistive Technology developments with the latest robotic products appearing alongside the simplest items. For example, in the first issue there is a toilet seat from the USA which incorporates expandable seat arms that can be adjusted outward up to 12 inches to provide more room for greater comfort and support and can support up to 1,000 lbs.
On the AT Today website there is a sign up for an alert when the latest issue becomes available and details of how to send your own news to be considered for future issues.
