On this page you can find impressions from the trade fair halls from the third day - in form of videos, photo galleries, articles and interviews.
Self-determined and empowering: Activists with disabilities
Nothing about us without us – this is the central demand of activists with disabilities. They get involved socially and politically, both on a larger and a smaller scale. And they met this year for a get-together at REHACARE.
It does not always need to be wheelchair dancing. The Zumba Group in the Sports Center, hall 7a, has shown that wheelchair fitness also works.
Up, up, and away – in hall 7a! You can get roped up in a wheelchair to rise up to the ceiling of the hall in the REHACARE Sports Center.
You are looking for a new car, want to adapt your car or are interested in scooters and other mobility aids? You will surely find what you are looking for in hall 6!
Gait training with the robot – Interview with sportho GmbH at REHACARE 2018
After a stroke or when having Parkinson's, everyday tasks can become challenging. If new movements have to be learned or the muscles slowly harden, gait training can help. Which role robots can play, the sportho company explains to us at REHACARE 2018!
Who is the fastest in the wheelchair? During the CYBATHLON Experience in hall 3, stand 3F04, there are daily races where participants have to prove their mastery of their assistive devices and aids.
REHACARE 2018 is coming to a close – unfortunately! This is why we asked some visitors and exhibitors for a small Good Bye. Save the date: Next REHACARE will take place from 18-21 September 2019.
Set at the touch of a button: The Ta-Da Chair "A Seat Stick" is not just an ordinary walking stick. Pressing the existing button together with two fingers opens a seat. Seen at the booth of Step2Gold (Hall 5 / F 36).
Would you like a third wheel? Produced in France, now at REHACARE: The light motorizations from Benoit Systems. The great thing is that they are suitable for most foldable and flexible chassis and manual wheelchairs, can be adapted to various disabilities and also roll quietly. Seen in hall 6/A30.
Trick or treat? This gentleman was spotted at REHACARE trade fair. So who needs something to nibble on in between, he has plenty and likes to share!
Even if the winter is coming soon, the next bicycle season is sure to come. If you are looking for a suitable bicycle trailer, you should visit John GmbH (Hall 5 /J12). We especially like this one here in REHACARE green.
Would you like to take a break from your tour of the trade fair? We would also like to lie down in the hanging chairs of Mira Art GmbH Traumschwinger (Hall 3/G39). At least they look very comfortable!
Whether it's braking, accelerating or honking: HandyTech's lever is attached to the side of the car seat and helps to do this. The only drawback: The driving system comes from Italy and is not yet sold in Germany. If you still want to test it, you can do so in Hall 6/D52.
More independence in everyday life? This is what the Suprema from T.G.R. GmbH offers. The height of the seat is so variable that objects can be lifted from the floor or books can be taken from a high shelf - without standing up, bending over or stretching. If you want to try it out yourself: hall 5/H19.
The seating system Atom from Jenx (Hall 5 / 28 IV) was developed for young children between six months and five years and offers many functions: The seat reduces fatigue, promotes bone development and muscle building and makes breathing easier thanks to the good sitting position.
