Rehacare: 2005 Report

| 0 Comments

People with special needs and those requiring care are prepared to invest in order to improve their quality of life. This conclusion was reached at the end of the 16th REHACARE International trade fair which ended on Saturday, 15 October 2005 in Düsseldorf.

Growing demands on comfort, mobility and living enjoyment as well as demographic shifts in the population are providing strong stimulus to the assistive devices industry. As chairman of the REHACARE workgroup, Richard Isselhorst noted that people with disabilities "are increasingly ready to reach into their own pockets to cover costs beyond those taken on by insurers if the product is right for them and promises greater quality of life”.
