International Fair for Rehabilitation, Compensation and Prosthetics Aids
Medical Summit Brno 2013
In mid-May, the Brno Exhibition Centre holds the MEDICAL FAIR BRNO and REHAPROTEX fairs where healthcare providers, rehabilitation and social care providers will present interesting innovations in their field. For suppliers of medical equipment and special aids for the handicapped, this is an opportunity to establish direct contacts with thousands of professionals who attend the fairs and the supporting programme in Brno.
Presentation of news and trends in health and rehabilitation technology has a long tradition in Brno. In recent years it was held each autumn, but based on the requests of the main exhibitors it moved to the spring dates 14 to 17 May this year. Furthermore, the connection of the two related disciplines is maintained, therefore the International Fair of Medical Technology and Health MEDICAL FAIR BRNO will take place together with International Fair of Rehabilitation, Assistive and Prosthetic Devices REHAPROTEX. Among the hundred participants already registered, there are traditional and major exhibitors like ALTECH, PATRON Bohemia, SIVAK, ERILENS, MEYRA ČR, VECOM, BTL zdravotnická technika, Madisson, RESI Třeboň and others. There are also first time participants such as Italian company Medinet or Ophardt Hygienetechnik from Germany.
Together with a shift in the dates, the content of the fairs partially changes as well, extended by current topics related primarily to the increase in aged clientele. Innovation projects include Senior, Old Age Patient Care, Social Care and Therapeutic Spas. The REHAPROTEX Fair will again be the largest show of its kind in Central Europe and will present not only a wide range of compensation, prosthetic, orthopaedic and rehabilitation equipment, but also wellness services and offers for seniors. Space for the presentation will again be given to social service providers. Medical Fair Brno will primarily appeal to health care providers and the patronage has been accepted by the Healthcare Minister Leoš Heger. The best exhibits of both fairs will compete for the prestigious Medical Fair Award and Rehaprotex Award.
