Our supporting programme has plenty to offer
Informative lectures by specialists, lively discussion rounds and hands-on testing of everything from various sports to vehicles and mobility aids
The prevention and treatment of pressure sores in hospitals, nursing homes and private care has been a major topic for decades. The most reliable preventive measure thus far is the time-consuming and strenuous repositioning of the affected person at individually agreed intervals. Insights into dynamic decubitus prophylaxis with an innovative lying system will be offered by Dr Markus Spalek, who will present its application and explain how the system functions.
How can the implementation of the promise in the coalition agreement “Strengthening the care of severely disabled children and their families” be continued? For all interested individuals, the Action Alliance for Needs-Based Provision of Therapeutic and Assistive Devices will explain its standpoint on the petition “Stop the blockade of health insurance companies in the provision of assistive devices for children with disabilities”. Everyone is invited to listen and join in the discussion.
The animal perspective will be presented in a lecture by Karl Mayer, who is a youth and home educator and a specialist in social work. With support from his animal companions, Mayer will explore the potentials and limits in a presentation titled “Fur, fin, feather: animal helpers in education and therapy”.
Along with the Hessischen Behinderten- und Rehabilitations-Sportverband and the Frankfurter Inklusions- Sportverein e.V., the Badischer Behinderten- und Rehabilitationssportverband will again be present this year. Whether it’s tennis in a wheelchair, adaptive self-defence for everyone or seated volleyball, the Inclusive sports complex has plenty to offer. The inclusive sports badge will be introduced as a new get-to-know offer.
