The Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Technology Transfer (T2RERC) is developing, implementing and testing systematic models of technology transfer. Starting in October 1998, the T2RERC partnered with the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Wheeled Mobility to conduct the Demand-Pull Project on Wheeled Mobility. This Project facilitates the transfer of technology and introduction of products into the wheeled mobility marketplace that address high-priority needs of consumers and other stakeholders. Successful transfers to date include a marketed power management technology (PowerCheqTM from Power Designers Corporation), a start up power wheelchair company, a start up lever drive manual wheelchair company and multiple manufacturers seeking to extend their product lines into the wheeled mobility marketplace.
