Mo­bil­ity En­gi­neer­ing is an Au­to­mo­tive En­gi­neer­ing Con­sul­tancy firm that spe­cialises in trans­port and safety so­lu­tions for peo­ple with lim­ited mo­bil­ity. This not only in­cludes peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties but also peo­ple who may have dif­fi­culty op­er­at­ing, en­ter­ing and ex­it­ing their ve­hi­cles. ME spe­cialises in em­pow­er­ing peo­ple in find­ing a so­lu­tion to achieve this and gain their in­de­pen­dence and mo­bil­ity.

Mo­bil­ity En­gi­neer­ing is Aus­tralian owned and op­er­ated since 1988, with Morry Ak­bar­ian as the founder and his sons: Ali, Amin and Omid now form­ing part of the fu­ture di­rec­tion of the com­pany bring­ing with them more in­no­va­tive and pro­gres­sive so­lu­tions to the Mo­bil­ity In­dus­try.

Re­cently we held our 2nd An­nual Ve­hi­cle Con­ver­sions Con­fer­ence. We are very proud and ex­cited to have held such an event hav­ing ex­perts and spe­cial guests from across the globe.

The event started out as a sim­ple vi­sion of be­ing able to demon­strate our prod­ucts and equip­ment in 2015, orig­i­nally call­ing it an ‘Open Day’. How­ever, when or­gan­is­ing this open day we fast re­alised that we were do­ing some­thing truly unique in Aus­tralia by bring­ing in in­ter­na­tional man­u­fac­tur­ers and sup­pli­ers who have never been here or spo­ken to our users and in­dus­try. Un­til now Aus­tralians had never had the op­por­tu­nity to in­ter­act and com­mu­ni­cate di­rectly with the man­u­fac­tur­ers and find out what goes into the man­u­fac­tur­ing of these prod­ucts. We have found this to be a very im­por­tant fac­tor for the users and pre­scribers of these prod­ucts.

With this re­al­i­sa­tion, the idea of con­vert­ing the ‘Open Day’ into an ac­tual an­nual con­fer­ence where we ed­u­cate and em­power peo­ple to be able to ap­proach our sup­pli­ers and their in­for­ma­tion in or­der to make their own de­ci­sions, was a no-brainer and needed to be done. 2016 was a huge suc­cess with over 100 In­dus­try Prac­ti­tion­ers, Oc­cu­pa­tional Ther­a­pists and Ca­reers, In­sur­ance Com­pa­nies at­tend­ing the con­fer­ence, all of who are now us­ing and rec­om­mend­ing these prod­ucts, to make sure that the peo­ple they deal with are safe and have a so­lu­tion that best meets their needs and abil­i­ties.

Mo­bil­ity En­gi­neer­ing looks for­ward to the 2017 Ve­hi­cle Con­ver­sions Con­fer­ence and what it will bring not only to Mo­bil­ity En­gi­neer­ing, but also to Aus­tralia.

Thank you for be­ing a part of it this year and we are very thank­ful to all our Mo­bil­ity En­gi­neer­ing Team for their ef­forts.
