Naidex Innovation Awards
In the last few years, the independent living industry has been growing at a remarkable rate. This has led to the launch of an incredible range of products and services that are significantly improving people’s lives! The Naidex Awards take a look at these and reward and celebrate the best of the best.
Our selected finalists all have considerably impacted and improved the disability and independent living industries. Each will showcase their product or service to a panel of industry-leading experts in front of a live audience, but it will be up to the judges to decide on the winners.
Each nominee has the opportunity to pitch their product to a judging panel of esteemed professionals, with one winner being chosen for each category.
Please Note: The below awards are from Naidex 2019. The 2020 awards will be announced closer to the event.

Able Magazine Best in Show Award
Able Magazine invites you to submit your products for review at Naidex.
Able Magazine is the UK’s favourite disability lifestyle publication and is again a media partner with Naidex for the 2019 event. We will be running their annual competition to find the product most deserving of the Able Magazine Best In Show Award.
Disabled people are always looking for lifestyle solutions. Part of this process will undoubtedly include sourcing good quality products and assistive technology. We want to help you to share the best of these ideas with our readership of disabled people and their carers – many of whom will be attending the forthcoming Naidex 2019 event.
The competition is based on Able Magazine’s regular product review process and we’re inviting exhibitors to submit their products for review. (Simply send details to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll review the product at Naidex.)
We’ve been writing about disability issues and the best in disability products for over 20 years and have developed a trusted voice within the disability community. We continue to provide reviews of disability products with our well-known ‘star ratings’ system in every editoin, in order to help disabled people make informed choices about their purchases.
The method behind our ratings is very simple and relies on grading in four main areas:
Function: Is it well made? Is it effective and easy to use?
Form: Does it look good? Is it stylish or mundane?
Innovation: Does it represent new ideas?
Cost: Is it good value for money?
All you need to do is email: email@example.com to let us know that you’ve got a product in mind that you’d like us to review.
