5 Factors to Consider in CRT Product Selection

Each year there are approximately 12,000 new cases of National Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) across the United States. Today, statistics show that there are 273,000 individuals living with a SCI. The majority of these individuals (over 80%) are young males with the average age of injury occurring at 42.6 years of age. For those of us who have been in the Complex Rehabilitation Technology (CRT) industry for, well, let’s say “a while,” we remember when an individual spent an average of 24 days in the acute wing of the hospital and then spent the next three to four months on the rehab unit. Today, those with a SCI spend about 11 days in the acute unit and just over 30 days in rehab.
