The CTF is comprised of 45 members, primarily seating and wheeled mobility clinicians, whose work involves providing wheelchair seating and mobility services to individuals with disabilities. This task force was formed in 2004 by a leading group of clinicians from across the U.S. concerned with ensuring that coverage policies for seating and wheeled mobility devices are based on clinically relevant information. Our mission is to bring the voice of the clinical community to those issues threatening appropriate access to seating, positioning and mobility products and services.
CTF decisions are made independently, based on group consensus and founded on the professional judgment and expertise of its members. A CTF Executive Board meets monthly to discuss specific projects, prioritize activities and develop a strategy to address issues that affect our industry. The Executive Board presents to the entire CTF membership on a quarterly basis via conference calls and more frequently via listserv communications.
Our funding is provided entirely through voluntary donations. CTF activities focus on being responsive to contemporary issues related to clinical practice and consumer access by bringing the voice and concerns of clinicians to Complex Rehab Technology (CRT) initiatives.
