The Mobility Roadshow, an annual three day event showcasing mobility and lifestyle products, kicks off on Thursday 30th June at the East of England Showground in Peterborough..

We’re particularly excited about this year’s event, as Enabled by Design has joined forces with Such + Such Design to run a new feature at the show called the Design Zone. Supported by the Royal College of Art’s Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design, this area will showcase new and innovative products that support independent living.

HHC_logo.gifThe Design Zone will include:

Innovation Showcase:

Find out about the independent living products of the future and test out some new products that are already on the market.

Enabled by Design Video Booth:

Tell us all about the independent living products that you love, hate or would like to change in some way. Does this product not even exist yet? If so, what is it and how would it work? We’d love to hear your thoughts!

Such + Such Design Surgery:

Have you got an idea for a new product that supports independent living? Speak to a designer about your idea and those all important next steps. Find out what’s involved in the design and production of products and why things cost so much more in the healthcare market. See the evolution of some products to retail and find out how you can get involved – no design experience required!

Plus The Cool Wall:

A space for you to express your opinions on a selection of new and current independent living products. Vote for your favourites here. What will win in the cool stakes? Only you can decide…
