Welcome to the trade fair for self-determined living!
More than 960 exhibitors from 40 countries will be providing a comprehensive overview in six exhibition halls and covering everything that can make daily life easier for people with disabilities, those requiring care and also the elderly.
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.
Diversity is a top priority for us. This year more than 960 international exhibitors are represented in Düsseldorf. Which product highlights they have in their luggage and why they like to be represented at REHACARE, they tell in our video.
Video: Wheelchair golf: Without handicap to the green

Video interview with eMovements: Good on foot with the e-rollator

As always, there's a lot going on in Hall 7a! And as always: Be active instead of just watching!
