Rehabilitation Technology

Mission, Purpose, and Vision

Mission Statement: The Rehabilitation Technology Special Interest Group (RT SIG) will promote access to, and the adoption of, rehabilitation technology for all people living with chronic illness and disability, through person-centered, community and end-user engagement, advocacy, research, education, knowledge translation, and clinical care.

Purpose: The RT SIG will forward this mission by creating a forum for members of Division 22 and other stakeholders interested in advancing rehabilitation technology to improve quality of life for individuals with disabilities and chronic health conditions.

Vision: The RT SIG will promote:

• innovative and rigorous research to improve the rehabilitation technology development, use, and outcomes

• education and training in the development and use of rehabilitation technology

• justice associated with environmental, institutional, and social barriers diminishing the development of, use of, and access to rehabilitation technology
