Unite4CRT "Conversations" is a place to share Our Stories. What's your story?
UNITE4CRT is a small group with an Extra Loud Voice.
We want the community to appreciate that complex rehab technology (CRT) is equipment that is medically necessary and individually configured. It can be manual wheelchairs, power wheelchair systems, adaptive seating systems, alternative positioning systems, and other mobility devices that require evaluation, fitting, configuration, adjustment, or programming.
Essential. Crucial. Vital. Not Optional.
This equipment is essential for independence and opportunities for a happy, healthy life.
We invite you to join us to use our voices as a catalyst for change.
What kind of change are we talking about?
We want people to view Mobility as a Human Right
We want insurance companies, Medicare, Medicaid, and the general population to understand that our equipment is customized for the individual user and is not optional
As CRT Users, Suppliers, Clinicians, Manufacturers, Caregivers, Family, and Friends UNITE in monthly Conversations, we share stories and provide education in a welcoming and supportive environment.
Mark your calendar for the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7 pm ET. We hope to see you then!

“Being a part of #Unite4CRT has given me the opportunity to educate myself and others about Complex Rehab Technology. My daughter Codi uses a power wheelchair which gives her freedom and independence. It’s imperative we advocate and educate anyone who will listen about the necessity of CRT. I so appreciate the knowledge and enthusiasm of #Unite4CRT members!”
“Advocating for access to complex rehab technology has become a very important part of my life. The work that I do not only benefits myself, but others in similar situations and others that might not know they will need to utilize that type of equipment sometime in their lives.”
“I believe that if you don’t voice your opinion then no one knows of the problem. Being a part of this group allows me to fight for the things that I think will help not only myself but my fellow wheelchair users. I have talked with people that have been the voice in the past and I have heard what effect that has had over the years. I can only aspire to do the same. I hope I can lead others to follow also, because together we can improve the lives of many.”
