"I am a physical therapist and I am working as a clinical instructor/ wheelchair seating clinician at the UPMC Center for Assistive Technology. I am proud to be part of a multidisciplinary team that consists of therapist, physician, rehabilitation engineers and rehabilitation technology suppliers. This team is working together in putting life in motion for individuals with disabilities. What ever assistive technology is needed, the CAT can provide a bridge to independence and opportunity to live life to its fullest and to enhance the quality of life of our clients. On a personal note, being married to a person with SCI, I appreciate the importance and the impact that appropriate assistive technology not only has on my husband's quality of live, but how it indirectly affects my own quality of live. Appropriate technology has allowed us to lead a fulfilling, active, productive professional and social life. I am very excited and thankful to be part of the QoLT initiative."
