Presentations and Tours

Our team can provide engaging presentations and display tours for groups of interested parties, demonstrating solutions to everyday problems through the use of assistive technology. We regularly present to a wide cross-section of the community including schools, TAFE Colleges and Universities, healthy ageing groups, support networks and community groups. Bookings can be made at any time throughout the year by contact with us or by completing and returning the booking form.

These presentations are general education sessions and up to 45 minutes in length. Topics include:

  • Great Gadgets - a run-through of products that will assist with everyday tasks including mealtime, dressing, household, mobility and transport. It also covers products that would be useful for people with arthritis and vision impairment - click the Great Gadgets link to watch this online or call us to order a free DVD for your group or organisation
