The University of Pittsburgh is seeking participants for a survey on the state of wheelchair repairs.
Qualified survey respondents are those who work for complex rehab technology (CRT) suppliers in positions that include ATP, repair/service technician, business managers/owners, and other staff that supports wheelchair repairs.
Respondents must also work in the United States or its territories.
In a news announcement from the University of Pittsburgh, Mark Schmeler, Ph.D., OTR/L, ATP, Vice Chair for Education & Training, said “The purpose of the survey is to gain a more scientific understanding of challenges, strategies and future opportunities in this area of CRT service delivery. Findings may be published in scientific journals, industry publications, and/or presented at conferences. Findings may also be used to assist with lobbying activities to support the role of CRT.”
The survey asks opinions “related to various aspects of providing repairs” and takes five to 10 minutes to complete.
The deadline to collect responses is Fri., April 26. Identities of survey respondents will be protected, and survey answers will remain anonymous.
People who complete the survey can elect to enter a drawing for one free year of online continuing education credits.
