CRT Celebrates the 30th Anniversary of the ADA

The American with Disabilities Act (ADA), signed into law on July 26, 1990 by President George H.W. Bush, was intended to ensure that any individual was not socially defined or limited in life by a disability. For those people who rely on Complex Rehab Technology (CRT) equipment and services, the promise of the ADA cannot be fulfilled without adequate access to the CRT they depend on for their healthcare needs and to maximize their function and independence.

NCART will be coordinating an Anniversary Campaign from May through July to celebrate the 30 year birthday of this major legislation. We'll highlight the significant improvements, what still needs to be done, and the importance of adequate CRT access so people with disabilities can take full advantage of the benefits of the ADA. Check this page as we move ahead for updates, resources, and information about CRT and the ADA Anniversary.


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 action to ensure that people with disabilities have adequate access to CRT to gain the full promise of the ADA.
