Being empowered to have a greater choice and control of your own life is a vital aspect to physical and mental wellbeing. For disabled people, the opportunity to live independently has become increasingly possible due to the recent surge in products, technology and services dedicated to independent living. But with such an impressive amount of choice, it can be hard to find exactly what you need. No need to worry, on 26th and 27th March at Birmingham’s NEC, you will be able to see the latest innovations during the 45th edition of Naidex, Europe’s leading event for independent living.

A huge part of independent living is about being able to move around freely whenever and wherever you want to. For people with mobility issues, having the wrong equipment can seriously affect your day-to-day, that is why Naidex will host exhibitors such as Quickie Wheelchair, TGA Mobility and RGK Wheelchairs amongst another 350 exhibitors to make sure that you can find the latest mobility products that meet your every requirement. Best of all, you can try before you buy by testing any wheelchair, powerchair or scooter on the famous Mobility Test Track; this interactive feature will be full of ramps and various obstacles to test the fit and manoeuvrability of any mobility product, so you can find your perfect match!

Having the correct equipment, services and support at hand is essential for anyone who is planning to travel or go on holiday, to remain independent and enjoy themselves. Divecor will be one of many exhibitors at Naidex offering these accessible leisure experiences. Offering scuba diving therapy and activities, this company will be one of many worth approaching for visitors to begin planning their next adventure and life-affirming experience. Also, Limitless Travel will be exhibiting their range of accessible holidays, whilst Airbnb will be hosting a seminar discussing accessible holiday options.

More people are living independently thanks to the increase in technology available, ranging from apps to equipment, giving people more control over their own lives than ever before and Naidex will be bringing these innovations centre-stage. This will take place alongside the huge array of assistive technology suitable for all disabilities and personal needs. It will include exhibitors like Computer Room Services and HfT Personalised Technology, who are both currently at the forefront of providing assistive living technology. With 250 world-class seminars across both days, Naidex will also enable you to learn more about the technological advancements that are changing the way people live independently. Amongst them you’ll find speakers like Gerry Allmark from UKTelehealthcare who will be leading a seminar discussing the technology that supports independent home living.

Anyone looking for tools to help them further their independence will find everything they need at Naidex. Around 15,000 visitors will fill the NEC and take advantage of the 350 exhibitors and 250 seminars all providing the best of the best innovations, services, knowledge and information. Alongside all of this, you will find features like the Mobility Test Track, Design & Build Summit, and Live Sports Arena providing amazing experiences for visitors over the two days.
