Protecting and Promoting Access to Complex Rehab Technology

Welcome to access2crt.org! This website has been created to share information regarding Complex Rehab Technology (CRT) and provide resources and tools to promote and protect access for people with disabilities. 

Complex Rehab Technology includes medically necessary and individually configured manual and power wheelchairs, seating and positioning systems, and other adaptive equipment such as standing devices and gait trainers.

This site is organized to allow you to learn about threats to access on both the federal and state level. It also provides educational materials and links you can use to explain what CRT is, how it is provided, and the benefits it produces. We hope you find the information helpful and encourage you to get involved in advocating for access to Complex Rehab Technology for the children and adults who rely on it. Thanks for your interest and participation!

CRT: 30 Years After The Americans With Disabilities Act

Senator Tom Harkin (Retired) is a lifelong champion for people with disabilities and was the lead sponsor of the ADA when it passed in the Senate. To help draw attention to the 30-Year Anniversary and the importance of Complex Rehab Technology, The Harkin Institute participated in the video below. It restates the purpose of the ADA and how it applies to those who utilize CRT and urges policy makers to take actions that enure people with disabilities have adequate access to CRT to gain the full promise of the ADA.
