As long time exhibitors at the fantastic annual Naidex disability and homecare event, we’re pleased to announce we’ll be back in 2015 and we’ll be sharing our stand with the fantastic talents of inventor and founder of Version 22, Simon Lyons.

Simon will be joining the Trabasack Team at Naidex to show off his exciting new product

Come and see both the Trabasack team, showcasing our Equipped for Life online boutique range of products as well as Version 22 and their innovative and award-winning Geco Hub and other new ideas, between 28th and 30th April at the NEC in Birmingham.

This year representatives from Naidex say that there will be over 40 new product launches at the event so it’s certainly worth coming along to see what fresh and innovative ideas are out there for the future of disability living and care.

About Version 22

We’re delighted to be sharing our stand with the creative and innovative talent that is Version 22. Simon Lyons is a multi-award-winning inventor whose fantastic Geco Hub has been showcased on our Living with Disability blog and is an example of a household item which is truly designed with design for all principles in mind. The Geco Hub has gone from strength to strength with the first units available for pre-order for delivery in May this year and thanks to huge success both on Kickstarter and thanks to the receipt of many awards for its ingeniousness.

Most recently Version 22 has been awarded the Irwin Mitchell Design for Life Award for a brand new invention which has been designed with the potential aim of improving the quality of life of people living with disabilities, although the idea is very much under wraps at present we look forward to hearing more about it!

Be one of the first people to see Simon’s newest product by visiting our stand  at the show!

The Irwin Mitchell Design Award is a huge accolade and gives Version 22 £10,000 in legal fees and R&D support to get their new idea off the ground. There were over 100 entries for the award but in the end this innovative new idea from Version 22 was the one that the prestigious law firm chose as their best bet. The winner was chosen in conjunction with Nesta and Disability Rights UK, ensuring experts were available to ensure the right entrant was selected. Congratulations Version 22!

Visiting our stand you’ll be able to see the Geco Hub in action and Simon is also planning to showcase and demonstrate his brand new product.

As long time exhibitors at Naidex National, we’re really excited to be back again in 2015 and hope to demonstrate both our originally designed Trabasack range as well as other products selected from our range which aims to provide useful and convenient tools for everyday life. Our range includes stand out examples of inclusive design including the Knork and Greepers Laces.

We will also have stocks of a new product never seen at Naidex before:

THE BIG BIG BODY WIPES! Giant wet wipes for camping, festivals and an all over body wash anywhere!

Our range represents aids which are designed to make life easier and we specialise in sourcing British designs, like our own, wherever possible.

We can be found at stand E102 in the Daily Living Aids sector of the exhibitors area and look forward to seeing as many of you as possible. 

We are directly ahead walking from the entrance at Hall 18 near the Trade Theatre. Tweet me if you get lost @trabasack!

The organisers of NAIDEX are reluctant to put a floor map online but I have one for you here  >

Another great feature of Naidex exhibitions is The Car Zone, an area dedicated to the showcasing and display of vehicles specifically adapted for wheelchair users. With the support of the Blue Badge Network, you can have a look at some fantastic vehicle options and find out if an accessible vehicle is something which could be a great option for you!

Follow Me on Pinterest  The focus at Naidex South is independence and how technology can aid and develop the independence and personal freedom of those with disabilities. We at Trabasack feel very at home in the company of those at Naidex as we also support innovative and accessible technology, as our products clearly demonstrate!

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.
