MISSION

The TRNG will provide resources and collaboration opportunities for promoting rehab technology research and development, and bridging gaps in technology adoption in rehabilitation (i.e., between researchers, clinical settings and the availability to the end-user). The TRNG will attract leading professionals internationally, spanning academic, clinical, research and commercial and end-user environments. The TRNG will also assist ACRM staff in making ACRM visible to commercial technology companies and in recruiting commercial exhibitors.

 

VISION

The Technology in Rehabilitation Networking Group (TRNG) aims to be recognized as the leading international networking group providing collaboration and resources for development and deployment of technology in the field of rehabilitation medicine. The TRNG serves as the venue for an inter-disciplinary group of rehabilitation professionals, comprising academicians, clinicians, researchers, rehabilitation and consumer technology industry members, and end-users. This inter-disciplinary group is dedicated to promoting rehab technology research and development, bench-to-bedside application to the clinical environment and effective technology transfer for availability to end-users.
