The ILC has recently introduced QR codes onto the ILC Equipment Display Floor at its Nedlands Head Office. Standing for Quick Response Code, a QR Code is a type of bar code that can link to information on the internet. An app on a smartphone or tablet computer is needed to scan a QR code which may open up a webpage, play a video or link to social media sites like Facebook. It links us to this information a lot faster and easier than typing in the web address. You may have seen these codes before in magazines or on posters.
At the ILC you can now expect to see QR codes on items such as scooters, personal alarms, walking frames and manual wheelchairs, to name a few, with the codes linking to resources on the ILC website, the National Equipment Database and ILC’s YouTube channel.
ILC Occupational Therapist Jessica Rigden, who managed the QR codes project, said the aim is to help visitors to more easily and quickly get access to the information and resources they require, such as equipment help sheets.
So that you are prepared for the next time you visit the ILC Nedlands Head Office why not download a free QR scanner app onto your smartphone or tablet before visiting? Simply search QR Code Reader in the App Store or Play Store.
