For your reference in advocating for protecting access to equipment for all CRT users, this guide was developed by NRRTS and their CRT user coalition, Unite4CRT. Be sure to contact your member of Congress to ensure that they understand how important CRT is to the independence and health of wheelchair users. Tell your story to bring it home.
CRT users are leading the way in efforts to get vital legislation passed that will protect Complex Rehab Technology. Recognizing the need for CRT users to be at the center of advocacy efforts, the new initiative #Unite4CRT was formed.
Led by Kyle Romano, Bobbi Kay Lewis, and Jenny Siegle, #Unite4CRT is asking everyone to join in the first of a series of online meetings. During this session, you’ll be provided with the tools to confidently and comfortably portray CRT’s vital role.
A properly selected and fitted back support can help a wheelchair user maintain their balance and best position on their cushion, resulting in the stability needed for increased freedom of movement and independence.
Accurate support of the trunk can also help reduce the stresses of pressure and shear on the cushion, contributing to good skin outcomes.
Shown here, designed specifically for pediatric users (or very narrow adults), the Java Decaf Back’s patented bio-mechanical design provides the flexibility to accurately fit both the trunk and pelvis for support, comfort and enhanced mobility. The Decaf Back fits any wheelchair 10-14″ in width. The highly adjustable hardware and personalized contour at the pelvis help to provide balanced support and freedom of movement.
