Complex Rehab Technology (CRT) Explained

Complex rehab technology, or CRT, is mobility equipment custom-designed to meet your specific and unique medical, physical, and functional needs. 

CRT helps individuals regain mobility and independence for everyday tasks, regardless of the medical condition they're living with.  

Most individuals obtain CRT after being diagnosed with progressive or degenerative neuromuscular diseases, congenital disorders, or suffering from a life-changing injury that severely impairs mobility. 

Custom rehab technology utilizes advanced custom wheelchair options, seating systems, positioning systems, and more to create the best solution for each individual.

Durable medical equipment (or DME) is equipment used in the home to help you complete your daily activities and improve your quality of living. It is a benefit covered by most insurances. However, medical equipment that falls under standard DME is much less customizable than CRT. 

For example, basic manual wheelchairs, scooters, and power wheelchairs with captain style seats are considered standard DME and provide minimal to zero adjustability; while CRT offers highly customizable seating and positioning support with enhanced controls that adapt to your specific medical and functional needs. 

DME is typically easier to get insurance coverage for, while CRT tends to involve a lot more red tape. Luckily, here at Freedom Mobility, we have dedicated CRT experts ready to help you navigate insurance authorizations!

Not everyone is going to need a customized solution, but if you're someone with complicated or severe mobility issues, complex rehab technology can transform your life.
