38,600 visitors came to the trade fair halls in Düsseldorf between 18 and 21 September

Innovative and bursting with good ideas: This is how the international REHACARE 2019 trade fair presented itself at the trade fair centre in Düsseldorf. The trade fair ended on Saturday, 21 September 2019, after four days. 38,600 visitors gained information from 751 exhibitors from 43 countries on aids that make life easier for senior citizens, people with disabilities and people who require care. Self-help groups, social organisations and representatives from the political sphere put current questions around disability and health policies up for discussion.

“By doing so, REHACARE contributes significantly to securing independence and ensuring greater inclusion in daily life, care and the working world,” said Wolfram N. Diener, Operative Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf, commenting on the importance of the trade fair. “When it comes to internationality, REHACARE’s offer has once again set standards. More than two thirds of the participants came from abroad. A thrilling mixture of established mid-sized companies, dynamic inventors and company founders won over visitors with their innovative solutions for almost every disability and area of life. Exhibitors presented products that are already available on the market as well as prototypes that will soon be ready for market.”
