Danish.Care is the Danish trade association of manufacturers and suppliers of assistive technology, welfare technology and services within the area of assistive technology and care.
Manufacturers of assistive technology products, welfare technology products and services within the area of assistive technology and care, as well as companies with related products and services, may be accepted as members of the association.
Companies, associations, institutions, etc., which are related to the industry without being able to fulfil the conditions to be core members can be accepted as associate members.
The association has 120 member companies.
The board is elected by the members and consists of 10 people.
The association was founded in 1981.
Before April 2018, Danish.Care was known as "Dansk Rehab Gruppe". The name change was an element in and a result of a strategy process in the trade association, and at the same time, the association has strengthened its position as the industry's organization and stakeholder. Assistive and welfare technology solutions are Danish strengths in the global market in terms of innovation, quality and design, but also solutions that fights for its eligibility and financing in a home market characterized by a short-term purchasing perspective that challenges many of the small and medium-sized enterprises.
