NRRTS – National Registry of Rehabilitation Technology Suppliers

NRRTS is a professional association supporting individuals who provide Complex Rehab Technology wheelchairs and seated positioning systems for people of all ages and diagnoses who have postural or mobility deficits. These professionals offer quality care and service using specialized knowledge, training, experience and skills to match the consumers’ needs to appropriate equipment.

The National Registry of Rehabilitation Technology Suppliers was incorporated in 1992 by a group of rehabilitation technology suppliers (RTSs) committed to raising the standards of their profession and ensuring consumers receive quality, cost-effective, individualized and function-enhancing equipment. To this end, a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice was established as well as mandatory annual continuing education so Registrants maintain appropriate skills and current knowledge in the field of rehabilitation technology. NRRTS currently has Registrants in all 50 states.

NRRTS is a professional association of committed, skilled, experienced individuals who provide Complex Rehab Technology and services to people with significant postural or mobility deficits. This technology includes wheelchairs and seating systems along with other enabling technology.

Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injury can result in paralysis of the muscles used for breathing; paralysis and/or loss of feeling in all or some of the trunk, arms, and legs; weakness; numbness; loss of bowel and bladder control; and numerous secondary conditions including respiratory problems, pressure sores, and sometimes fatal spikes in blood pressure. Approximately 12,000 new spinal cord injuries occur in the U.S. each year. A majority of injuries occur from motor vehicle accidents, falls, work-related accidents, sports injuries, and penetrations such as stab or gunshot wounds.
