SCIA Education sessions

Take away the fear and explore your passion for travel 

Since a motor vehicle accident in January 1980, Malcolm Turnbull has lived with T5 complete paraplegia. He has travelled around the world for sports, work and leisure.

From camping to five-star luxury, Malcolm has travelled through first to third world countries in his wheelchair, toured nationally and internationally for wheelchair basketball and has worked in the assistive technology industry giving him insight into the challenges and advantages of travel as a wheelchair user.
 
Whether you’re thinking about travelling or you’re already planning, hear Mal share his travel tips and tricks and sample some of the technology he has used to make his travels possible.

Come and be the first to learn about a revolutionary new continence product

Are you currently using self/intermittent catheters? Your opinion is important.

Coloplast will be holding a small focus group with people who use intermittent/self-catherisation to manage their bladder. You will work with Coloplast to help them understand how companies can better support people learning and living with intermittent catheterisation.
 
They will be showcasing one of their soon-to-launch revolutionary catheters and are looking for people to trial these over a week.
 
You can also check out the new Coloplast Care website to see if it meets your needs and give them feedback at this session - https://www.coloplastcare.com/en-au/continence/
 
Register today and you can help Coloplast incorporate your feedback to better suit your needs and those of others.
