DLF to act as the information point for Naidex 2009
13th March 2009
The Disabled Living Foundation (DLF) is pleased to announce it will once again act as the Information Point for Naidex 2009. DLF is a national charity that provides free, impartial advice and information about all types of daily living equipment for older and disabled people and their carers.
Naidex is the UK’s number one exhibition for Homecare, Disability and Rehabilitation. Naidex 2009 will take place on 28 - 30 April 2009 at the NEC Birmingham, and promises to have more in store for visitors than ever before. This year The Association of Wheelchair Children will be putting on ‘Hot Wheels’ Wheelchair Training Sessions, free of charge events specifically tailored to the needs of disabled children. There will also be Naidex Living Spaces, featuring the best in inclusive design, new technology and telecare products in a realistic environment as well as a New Product Gallery and Lifestyle Demonstration Zone. The DLF stand should be your first port of call when arriving at the exhibition to find out where to go for the equipment best suited to you.
DLF will be running seminars each day in the Lifestyle Demonstration Zone on its groundbreaking new website, Living made easy (www.livingmadeeasy.org.uk), which offers clear, practical advice on daily living equipment. All the advice and information has been created by our team of expert occupational therapists so that visitors can get as much information as they need before contacting a supplier.
DLF will also be previewing its new website on children’s equipment, funded by the Department for Children, Schools and Families, at its seminars in the KideQuip area at the show.
As the Information Point at the show, DLF will provide factsheets and printouts of information from its comprehensive database of over 14,000 products, DLF Data, to visitors looking for information on equipment. In addition, DLF will direct attendees to relevant manufacturers and suppliers within the exhibition hall where products are being demonstrated. So be sure to visit the DLF stand, located at the entrance next to the registration desk, to get the most out of your visit to Naidex 2009.
