The contest rewards people who have created, found or adapted objects that improve the daily life of people with disabilities. From simple adaptations to innovations, all creations facilitating autonomy, participation during daily life activities, so that they are more accessible, usable, comfortable and/or pleasant to use for people with disabilities, are welcome!
Existing aids are often expensive or not sufficiently adapted to the specific needs and environment of the person. The ingenious adaptations created with limited resources deserve to be highlighted and better known.
The contest allows the sharing of these innovations so that they can be replicated and reused by other people.
Who can participate?
Anybody, but in particular, persons with disabilities, their relatives or members of the rehabilitation team and professionals who have made adjustment to improve daily life, enhance autonomy and participation of someone living with a disability.
The competition will have 2 categories:

A category for “non-professionals”, for all other people whose profession is not related to health, disability
At the time of your application you will have to indicate if you belong to one or the other of these categories!
The public will also be invited to participate since they can vote online for their favorite creation! At the end of the voting phase, a creation will be awarded with the public prize!
