Publications by CTF Members

The Clinician Task Force members are accomplished clinicians, often advocating and educating outside of the CTF in addition to their work with the CTF. This list attempts to compile at least some of the notable publications made by CTF members as they spread the word about best practice in seating and wheeled mobility services.
