The ATSA Independent Living Expo, Australia’s largest assistive technology and disability event, will take place in Canberra on August 27- 28, at the National Convention Centre, Canberra.
The role of assistive technology is growing in Australia. Assistive technology is assistive, adaptive and rehabilitative devices for people with disabilities or older people.
Initially it started off with mobility and lifting devices but now includes anything that offers greater independence to the individual, keeps them safer and also contributes to making the carer’s role easier.
Families, carers and healthcare professionals are making decisions every day. So when it comes to choosing innovative solutions that will impact on the wellbeing and independence for people wanting to stay in their homes, assistive technologies is where it begins.
