It’s CRT Awareness Week! What does that mean and why should I care?

“Complex Rehab Technology (CRT) includes individually configured wheelchairs, seating systems, and other adaptive equipment prescribed to meet the specific needs of people with disabilities such as ALS, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and spinal cord injury. This specialized equipment addresses their medical needs, reduces their health care costs, and maximizes their function and independence”. (taken from access2crt.org)
CRT Awareness Week is meant to let people know how important CRT is, and to inform the public of current legislation related to CRT. It happens every August when members of Congress are in their home offices and the goal is to mobilize people to reach out to their Congressmen and ask for their support on Bills that protect access to CRT.
“We need Congress to protect access by passing important legislation this year”.(taken from access2CRT.org)

Joseph Maimone lives in NC and is a published author, radio contributor, and has a following on YouTube. He sustained a spinal cord injury from a skiing accident in 2004 and has been in a wheelchair ever since. This is his story of how standing has improved his health and lifestyle. Thanks to Todd Dewey, ATP with Numotion for connecting us with our friend Joseph to share his story.
