Naidex National 2012

Yesterday I travelled to The NEC in Birmingham which is hosting Naidex National 2012 this week (1st May-3rd May). As a regular visitor to the annual mobility, disability and rehabilitation expo I always have high expectations from Naidex and I’m pleased to say that this year’s show was a good as ever.

Although I was sad to not see a doggie demonstration from Canine Partners like last year I was pleased to see the huge selection of products in this year’s New Products Showcase. Fantastically 2012’s product showcase includes practical products and newer versions of old favourites alongside products which embrace our ever evolving technology.

One of the products which particularly caught my eye was Orthros by Lepmis. A games console joystick which essentially makes gaming accessible for all disabled people. Orthros has proved to be incredibly popular because it’s designed to include all seventeen buttons from a PlayStation 3 and X-Box on one single pad allowing users to control the console with only one hand- perfect for users with mobility difficulties.

Orthros Gaming Solution

Although I don’t play games consoles I do understand the enormous joy which PlayStations and X-Box’s give to gaming fans. Whilst at Naidex yesterday I was lucky enough to see a disabled youngster demonstrate the Orthros and it was a pleasure to watch because the Orthros clearly enabled him to enjoy a hobby which he may have otherwise been unable too.

Therefore I believe that products such as Orthros shouldn’t be underestimated. Although this style of product may only be designed for a niche audience it has a fantastic ability of uplifting the spirits of the target audience and is using technology to make life as enjoyable as possible for disabled people something is most definitely worth celebrating.  

So if you’re off to Naidex this week make sure to check it out and don’t forget to vote Orthros in the New Product Showcase 2012 or visit www.lepmis.co.uk where you can learn more about all of Lepmis products.
