Active Hands are going to Rio

Active Hands have won the opportunity to go to Rio, during the Paralympics, to pitch our products to business leaders. This exciting opportunity came through a competition run by UKTI and the Innovation Forum and only five businesses were selected to go! The judges were looking for the “5 most innovative companies from the UK who offer healthcare related solutions to improve the lives of people with disabilities” and Active Hands was deemed to be one of these. 2016_Summer_Paralympics_logo.svg

Rob had to create a short video about our products and answer questions about our products. Given that there are many Paralympians who train and compete with our products this competition was ideal for us!

Active Hands are looking forward to showing off all of our current products and a few new designs to such an influential audience in September.
