ASL Wins RESNA Leadership Award

Adaptive Switch Laboratories (ASL) has won the RESNA Leadership Award, given to an agency, company, association or university “for its significant contributions to the advancement of the field of assistive technology and rehabilitation engineering.”

In a Sept. 29 news announcement, ASL Director Lisa Rotelli said, “It is truly an honor to receive this recognition from RESNA, an organization that at its core shares our ideology. At Adaptive Switch Laboratories, our mission is to make everyday life easier through technology. The award reinforces our staff’s important work, and we remain steadfast in providing independence and equal rights for those we work with.”

RESNA’s annual conference was held virtually this year in September due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

On Oct. 5, RESNA announced its call for proposals for its 2021 event, scheduled for July 7-10 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City, Arlington, Va. The submissions portal opens Nov. 1, with a deadline of Nov. 20.
