Review to REHACARE 2016

Dear Sir or Madam,

Almost 50,000 visitors came to Düsseldorf last week where they had the chance to get informed about the topic self-determined living again. 916 exhibitors from 36 countries presented their latest products and services. was also on site with a camera and had a look at individual auxiliary means for children. But also topics like mobility and sports were covered: accessible camping vans were as in focus as honoring successful German Paralympic athletes.

Have a look back with us at four days REHACARE.

We are happy to see you again next year!
