Rehab Equipment Expo Assistive Technology Showcase
September 11, 2018
The Winter Expo in January 2017 was a success, thanks to all of you who braved the prospect of icy roads to make it. The school Christmas break and Oval availability however, have made it necessary for us to return to our traditional time of year for the next event.
The purpose of Rehab Equipment Expo is to give clinicians and consumers in the community and health facilities access to information needed to make educated decisions regarding the purchase of assistive technology. The event draws well over five hundred clinicians and almost one hundred exhibitors
Throughout the day not only will you be able to visit the exhibit booths, put names to faces and try out equipment; there will also be presentations from experts in their field designed to improve your knowledge about equipment selection and utilization. Information collected from the major funding sources in British Columbia has been collected and will be available to attendees.
REE is an excellent opportunity to discover support groups providing services to people with a disability. Many therapists use the event to network and get back in touch with colleagues.
If that isn’t enough to convince you that REE2018 is a must; you are also treated to complimentary food throughout the day.
Please feel free to distribute this information amongst your colleagues in Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Purchasing, and Speech Language Pathology.
