  • The assistive technology Designability are pleased to be bringing along their popular paediatric Wizzybug powered wheelchair to The OT Show. The Wizzybug has already changed the lives of over 600 children across the UK who are living with disabilities such as cerebral palsy, spinal muscular atrophy and spina bifida.

  • Assistive technologies can make a huge difference in the everyday life of people with disabilities, as they enable execution, activity and participation in everyday activities. This also applies to the VELA Chair, which is a device developed by VELA in the 1970s, which has become popular in many homes by providing people with disabilities with greater independence.

    VELA Chairs is a series of ergonomic chairs designed for people with disabilities. All chair models support and increase the user’s level of activity, ability to function as well as their independence in performing activities at home and work, and each has different characteristics.

  • Special Yoga techniques provide invaluable practises to support the work of occupational therapists and other paediatric professionals. The techniques we use and teach create further potential for increased abilities in children with special needs across many areas, including sensory input, communication, speech and language, physical and energetic alignment, and reduction in anxiety and associated behaviours.

    The practises also bring profound wellbeing and stress reduction for the occupational therapists themselves, which in turn improves the efficacy of the sessions with children.

    Our training programmes are bespoke and created following detailed consultation with clients so that the training outcomes meet the specific needs and requirements of occupational therapy teams and their service users.



    Droplet - Creating real change in hospitals & care homes

    Dehydration is responsible for thousands of hospital admissions in the UK every year with dehydration thought to be the cause of one in ten GP consultations for tiredness and fatigue.

    In care home and hospital trials Droplet increased daily fluid levels by more than 60%, equivalent to over ½ litre more each day. The benefits of this were two-fold – it improved the health & wellbeing of patients & residents but it also supported carers in understanding the hydration levels of those in their care.

    Developed in partnership with over 100 Healthcare Professionals and supported by NHS England, Droplet features soft flashing lights and gentle voice messages that remind the user to take a drink. You can also record your own comforting messages – providing a reassuring and familiar voice for loved ones when you can’t be there.

    With a contemporary design that mimics the familiarity of the cups and mugs we use at home, Droplet provides a dignified and supportive way to hydrate that puts the control back into the user’s hands.

  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) formerly Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) is a poorly understood condition which affects many people in the UK and across the globe is a painful and debilitating neuropathic condition that affects approximately 5% of all injuries that occur. According to research CRPS affects 1 in 3,800 people in the UK which is approximately 15,000 newly diagnosed cases every year, which doesn’t account for those who may have been undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.

    It isn’t as rare as you think, therefore all healthcare professionals should be able to identify the condition, know its signs and symptoms and be able to formulate a treatment plan. As a charity we raise awareness about CRPS amongst the public, health & legal professionals by providing awareness sessions, so diagnoses can be made quicker & treatment started more rapidly.

    November is CRPS awareness month and so it's a perfect time for you to develop your professional skills and learn about a condition you may never have heard of!

    Come and speak to the team at Stand H52 to learn more about the condition and how to access our CRPS awareness sessions for HCPs.

    Having an automated entrance system is an ideal solution for disabled people, as wheelchair users can find opening doors especially awkward.

    ADS also specialize in full home automation. Home automation is the control of anything in the home that has an electrical supply. Ultimately, it is about making life in and around the home and garden easier and safer. It provides improved convenience, comfort, energy efficiency and security.
