What is a Complex Rehabilitation Technology (CRT)?
Complex Rehab Technology describes individually customized, medically necessary equipment including power wheelchairs, manual wheelchairs, scooters, gait trainers, standing frames, adaptive strollers, and more.
What is a Letter of Medical Necessity (LMN)?
A Letter of Medical Necessity is a highly-detailed document written by a licensed medical professional outlining your medical history and diagnoses currently impacting your daily function. It also addresses impairments in strength, range of motion, balance, or any other area leading to the need for the proposed equipment. The Vendor provides a list of customizations requiring justification. Every detail of your new equipment must be accounted for to ensure you get exactly what you need. For example, in a letter requesting a wheelchair, customization such as specialty brakes, pressure-relieving seat cushions, and tilt-in-space or recline functions all serve a specific purpose to maximize the independence of the user.
How can I prepare for my Evaluation?
Prior to the evaluation, you may need to provide adaptABLE with a copy of your most recent annual physical exam. It is recommended that you wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing for efficient assessment. If you know you typically require assistance moving into and out of your current equipment, please have someone who usually helps you present. Please note that some measurements may be taken from a supine, or "laying down," position.
