Increased worldwide interest in MEGABEE™

Recent visit to ATIA in Florida has caused major interest in the USA and a regional distribution network is currently being established. The enthusiastic response has also secured distribution agreements in France, Australia, New Zealand and SE Asia.

The USA's Assistive Technology Industry Associations symposium was held in Orlando, Florida at the end of January. Demonstrations of MegaBee caused great excitement from professional users and distributors alike resulting in the establishment of a series of USA agencies and a technical support structure. AAC literacy guru Dr. Caroline Musselwhite was an instant convert to the simplicity and benefits of the unit and is currently demonstrating a unit. Dr Musselwhite will be using MegaBee when she comes to the UK in May for her 'Communication Matters' lecture tour of London, Manchester and Dumfermline.

In parallel, French AAC market leaders, PROTEOR, have been appointed as exclusive MegaBee agents covering France and Luxembourg. Proteor have a long history of medical device provision in France having been established in 1918 to originally produce artificial limbs. Their reputation is highly valued.

February has also started with the appointment of the Spectronics group to handle distribution throughout Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia. MD Michael O'Leary and Marketing Director, Barbara Landsberg saw MEGABEE being demonstrated at ATIA and instantly wanted to get involved. Jane Farrall their AAC support services manager says "from all the information recently brought back from [tours of] the UK and USA, MEGABEE is the thing that has excited me most". Spectronics have strong representation in Australia and New Zealand, and extensive business contacts throughout Brunei and Singapore.
