REHACARE: Aids and knowledge for self-determined living

The 40th REHACARE INTERNATIONAL that will be taking place in Düsseldorf in Germany from 4 to 7 October will be focusing on people with disabilities, care needs and chronic diseases as well as on the elderly. The 700 exhibitors from 36 countries who will be taking part in Europe's leading trade fair for rehabilitation and care will be presenting an overview of the opportunities currently available to help people live a largely self-determined life with the aid of innovative equipment. Almost every second exhibitor will be travelling from other countries to the event in Germany. Large national presentations, for instance, are expected from Denmark, Great Britain, Canada, China and Taiwan.


Mobility will be a major topic at REHACARE. More than 200 international exhibitors, for example, will be presenting wheelchairs, mobility scooters and walking aids. The overview will be occupying most of the event's halls. The product range in this area will be complemented by the car show that is unique in the trade-fair landscape for rehabilitation products. On 850 square metres of space in Hall 6, 21 vehicle-converting companies will be presenting the technical possibilities for adapting motor vehicles to almost any type of disability. In addition to the core segment with mobility and daily living aids as well as communications and care equipment for people with sensory disabilities, the trade fair will be offering a wealth of ideas and products for barrier-free living, leisure and travel along with a broad range of the sports that are available to the disabled and elderly. Around 60 exhibitors will be presenting equipment and tools for inpatient and outpatient care.
