idapt attends Global Business Summit on Advances in Assistive Medical Technologies
4th September 2012

The UKTI has organised and held a number of business summits during London 2012. As part of the series of events, the UKTI has recognised the key role that the UK plays in the development of innovative assistive technologies for those with special needs and those requiring care.  To promote British Business around the world, a Global Business Summit on Advances in Assistive Medical Technologies was held at Lancaster House at the start of this month.  The idapt team were delighted to receive an invitation to attend this event.

The day started early with a working breakfast and the opportunity to meet with other key players in this market.  This was followed by a visit to the world renowned Stoke Mandeville Hospital to see first hand some of the innovative work they are involved with.  It was also a great opportunity to visit the spiritual home of the Paralympic Games, which was in full flow on the other side of the capital.

After a productive day of seminars, a reception was held to allow those attending to discuss business in a less formal environment.  The attendees were welcomed to the evening reception by David Willetts MP. This was followed by a keynote speech from Dee Caffari MBE who gave an interesting insight into how injured soldiers have been re-inspired through competitive sailing. Overall, it was a brilliant opportunity to meet so many key players in this field.
