On 27 October 2009, the event “Assistive Technologies: what is their place in the mainstream market?” is organised.
Assistive technologies for older and disabled people have previously been provided through public sector providers such as local authority equipment services and through independent specialist outlets. However current DoH policy is encouraging the mainstreaming of such devices through high street retailers. This significant change presents both opportunities and challenges. The aim of this day is to bring together different stakeholders to discuss and debate the issues.
