02 May Attendees Get To Interact With Nia’s Technology at Discovery 2018
Nia Technologies was proud to participate as an exhibitor in the Accessibility Innovation Showcase at Discovery 2018.
This year, Discovery was held on April 30 and May 1, 2018 in Toronto, Canada at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
The conference is hosted by Ontario Centres of Excellence and is Canada’s leading innovation-to-commercialization conference. In 2017, Discovery brought together 3,600 attendees and more than 540 exhibitors across industry, academia, government, and the investment community.
Nia Technologies participated in the Accessibility Innovation Showcase alongside more than thirty other Ontario-based companies selected to exhibit their innovative assistive devices and technologies. According to the organizers, the purpose of the showcase is to “build broader awareness of the companies that exist in this niche market, provide exposure to potential private investors, and engage the entire innovation ecosystem.”
At Nia’s booth, attendees saw several 3D printers at work, fabricating lower limb prosthetic sockets. They were also able to experience NiaFit in virtual reality and learn about Nia’s work to bring 3D printed prosthetics and orthotics to children in resource poor countries.
