Come and see the latest equipment and services for the disability sector and hear from more than 40 international and local industry experts on key topics at the ATSA Independent Living Expo. Two days, from Wednesday 16 May to Thursday 17 May, in one great location, at the Melbourne Showgrounds.
The full education program has been announced and for the first time there will be panel discussion on the opportunities and value of occupational therapy in the assistive technology sector.
Russ Rolte from Active Controls will show how high tech modular controls located on a power wheelchair, can be operated by a finger, hand, chin or head. The positioning of the control to a centre mounted gel platform provides a number of benefits including reducing the physical movements necessary to operate a joystick or alternative drive control.
Physiotherapist Harald Sieweke, head of the Meyra Academy in Germany also joins the program and will discuss Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), one of the most frequently occurring and rapidly progressive of the childhood neuromuscular disorders that affect approximately one in 3500 male births worldwide.
With more than 150 exhibitors showcasing their products the expo is an event not to be missed. Click here to register.
