– The 35th International Seating Symposium
(ISS), the world’s largest educational conference featuring wheeled mobility and related assistive technology, returns to its roots this month.
The conference will take place at David L. Lawrence Convention Center
, where 127,000 square-feet of exhibition space will be dedicated to displays from more than 130 national and international exhibitors showcasing the latest mobility technology. This space will be open to the public during Community Day, a free event for visitors to talk with suppliers and watch equipment demonstrations.
“The International Seating Symposium has become an event that unites everyone in the wheelchair mobility community. Researchers, medical professionals, policy makers, vendors and the public alike can all find value in the programs offered at this conference,” said Mark Schmeler, Ph.D., O.T.R./L., A.T.P., ISS director and vice chair for education and training in Pitt’s Department of Rehabilitation Science and Technology. “As wheelchair mobility technology continues to advance, the ISS serves as a platform to get that technology to those who need it most.”
The most recent conference, held in Nashville in 2017, welcomed 2,400 attendees from 30 countries, all 50 states and eight Canadian provinces.
