About the SHOW

Oak Hill’s New England Assistive Technology (NEAT) Center connects people with the latest assistive technology, helping them effectively perform many tasks independently, overcome obstacles, and enhance their quality of life.

New smart home tools can provide a unique level of support and access to the world for people with disabilities and those 50 and over, and they can be the lifeline that helps someone remain in their home, or age in place. The NEAT Center offers education and training on these devices so that anyone can incorporate them into their everyday lives. The NEAT Center is proud to offer the Smart Home on Wheels (SHOW), a mobile demonstration center where individuals and groups can learn more about how technology can support independent living.

Interested in Booking the SHOW for Your Event?

The SHOW is available on a limited basis to be booked for events, where our expert staff will provide tours of the SHOW and demonstrate all of the amazing technology inside it.
Before contacting us to learn more, please review the following requirements to see if your event fits our criteria for booking:

Venue/Event Requirements

The footprint of the SHOW and its ramp is: 16ft wide x 35ft long x 13ft high. Depending on the event and the distance the SHOW and Oak Hill staff needs to travel, the SHOW may need to arrive up to 2 days before the event date and remain until the day after the event. You must provide adequate space for the SHOW for the duration of its time parked at the venue.

The technology housed in the SHOW requires access to a reliable WiFi network.
Event and event venue must be fully accessible. This means both ensuring that every individual, including those with mobility concerns and those in wheelchairs can access all aspects of your event as well as ensuring adequate space for the SHOW so that it is not blocked by curbs or any other obstructions that make it impossible for those with mobility concerns to enter and exit safely.

The event must in some way address our key audiences: people with disabilities and those age 50 and over.

If your event meets all of these basic criteria, we’d love to talk with you more!
