Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Technology Transfer (T²RERC)

For fifteen years — from 1993 to 2008 — we operated as the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Technology Transfer. Our outcome-oriented motto was “Moving new or improved products to the marketplace.” We worked with garage inventors, university scholars and business entrepreneurs to assess the utility of their creations, at the same time we worked with consumers, clinicians and manufacturers to identify their problems requiring solution. We helped commercialize over fifty devices in that time, as well as contributed to the field’s understanding of the elements that comprised success.
