Annette's websites of the week

Naidex National 2012 has been a focus point this week because of the annual exhibition at The NEC in Birmingham. Having already posted my highlights from Naidex I thought it would be a nice idea to finish the week with a Naidex themed websites of the week.

www.naidex.co.uk  – If you visited Naidex this week you no doubt came back with a list of products that you want to research online. Thankfully the Naidex website is set up with a simple A-Z category system that makes searching for products and suppliers stress free.

Along with directing visitors to everything featured at the show- exhibitors, products, industry experts- I like how www.Naidex.co.uk includes a live Twitter stream which made following the expo throughout the week easy and fun.

If you’re planning on visiting Naidex National next year I’d recommend visiting the site to get a feel for what you can expect from the show- check out the printable PDF’s of ‘Show Features’ including The New Product Showcase which I’ve found really useful.

www.rethinkthings.co.uk- Rethinkthings is home to one of my highlights from this year’s Naidex the stylish ‘Flo’ walking frame. The website is full of quirky products which all have a similar artistic style to the Flo. Plus the site includes a blog that explains all of Rethinkthing’s products in greater depth which is definitely worth a read.

www.lepmis.co.ukThe Orthros by Lepmis was my favourite product from Naidex 2012 because I was bowled over by how much joy the one handed video gaming joystick gave to its fans. A small but informative site, www.Lepmis.co.uk hosts a variety of different products which are all adapted to make video gaming accessible to disabled fans so it’s definitely worth book marking if you’re a gamer who currently has difficulties handling  generic controllers.

www.mobilegarden.co.ukAs I’m sure you can tell from my Highlights post yesterday Naidex is hugely diverse so it’s a delight to say that accessible gardening was also on display from The Mobile Garden who has come up with an in or outdoor gardening solution.

Their invention, a circular rotating planting tray, allows gardeners to plants vegetables, flowers and plants from their wheelchair or the comfort of a chair. It’s a lovely product which I’m sure all keen gardeners will be interested in especially as summer is just around the corner. I’d recommend visiting the website where you can watch a demonstration video which explores how the mobile garden works in its entirety.

www.ihusaccess.comThe Independent Living Home Show was hosted by iHUS who specialise in creating living spaces which are accessible to you. Their website includes an impressive portfolio of work which is exquisite and shows how homes can be adapted with additional living space.

Although I know that renovation is a big step for most people we have worked with customers who’ve used the Bath-Knight in speciality adapted Granny Flats, our latest was featured on Grand Designs. I think the iHus website is a great one to keep on file for future options and inspiration.
