Expect to see graphics and branding changes as the International Registry of Rehabilitation Technology Suppliers (iNRRTS) continues to make updates following its name change.
In a Jan. 8 announcement, NRRTS — the National Registry of Rehabilitation Technology Suppliers — said its international membership would now be reflected in the organization’s official name.
“The new name reflects the organization’s recent expansion and commitment to serving the global community of Rehabilitation Technology Suppliers,” the announcement said.
Going Beyond American Borders
The new iNRRTS name acknowledges and includes members in Canada and Australia.
iNRRTS President Carey Britton, ATP/SMS, CRTS, said in the announcement, “The additions of Canadian and Australian suppliers to the Registry has made it clear to us that the need for quality Complex Rehabilitation Technology [CRT] does not stop at a geographical boundary. We are excited to announce our new trade names, iNRRTS and International Registry of Rehabilitation Technology Suppliers, which reflect our commitment to advancing the field of CRT globally. We believe that iNRRTS will help us to be recognized for promoting the highest standards of professionalism, ethics, and service delivery for the benefit of people with disabilities everywhere.”
While the name change became effective with the Jan. 8 announcement, branding changes will continue to roll out in the opening months of 2024.
iNRRTS Executive Director Andrea Madsen, ATP, said, “During the first quarter of 2024, we will be updating our graphic identity and branding to reflect our new name. We will be sharing new graphics and branding identity with all of our Registrants, Friends of NRRTS, and supporters so they, too, can be part of our international growth. Please continue to visit our Web site at nrrts.org.”
NRRTS celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2022.
“NRRTS has been a trusted resource for complex rehab technology suppliers in the United States for over three decades,” Britton added. “As the industry has evolved and become more global, we recognized the need to expand our reach and better serve our members around the world. The new name reflects our commitment to that mission.”
