Plans are well underway for the UK’s biggest disability, homecare and rehabilitation event; Naidex 2011 which is to be held at Birmingham’s NEC from 5-7 April 2011.
Hundreds of specialist exhibitors have signed up to participate and Adam Thomas of Design Matters has been invited to speak at the CPD Seminar Theatre, where useful and informative talks are given by a selection of respected speakers. The talks are aimed specifically at health professionals, however architects and others involved in the design of the built environment also attend.
Space is limited for these talks, and last year there was standing room only! So register for Naidex 2011 now and make sure you don’t miss this opportunity to see Adam Thomas speak on the latest products and innovations in accessible kitchen design.
Adam may be available during the day on which he is speaking to meet with you if you have a special project to discuss. Please contact Natalie on the office number if this opportunity would be of interest.
If you have heard Adam speak at Naidex before, and would like to learn more about this exciting and challenging field why not visit the Training section of our web site where you can read about more opportunities to hear Adam speak, and perhaps even invite him to lead a training day for you and your colleagues.
Adam Thomas spoke at a workshop entitled Design & Rehabilitation at the RSA on 2-4 November 2010. The workshop was designed by Emily Campbell, Director of Design at the RSA and a panel of invited experts.
A joint project between the RSA and the Back-Up Trust the workshop aimed to encourage spinally injured participants to gain confidence in learning to analyse and evaluate objects and designed products with a view to considering how these items might be modified to work better.
The following video explains the concept behind the Design and Rehabilitation workshop, and the future goals of the project:
