Today, we’re making a stop-over in Italy. Our map will soon be all criss-crossed with dotted lines. Chester Creek has two main distributors in Italy. While I will include links to their websites, everything is in Italian, so you’ll likely need to settle for my CliffsNotes version.
Helpicare is one of our two Italian distributors. They feature a wide spread of services and offer their products and services across several EU countries. Beyond just tools, training, and resources, Helpicare also focuses on partnerships with other organizations to foster accessibility environmental control, and home automation. Founded in 2001, Helpicare has managed to become one of the largest assistive-technology companies in Italy.
Our other Italian distributor, Albamatic, focuses more on the products themselves. Their selection ranges from simple switches to home automation to educational software. Both of these companies carry some really cool products, like computer accessories that allow the severely disabled to use their gaze alone to navigate.
