Why an Assistive Technology Professional (ATP)?
When a Doctor, Physical or Occupational Therapist recommends a rehabilitation power chair for a patient and refers to
American Seating & Mobility, stakes are exceptionally high. The patient customarily has a neurologically based condition or disease which requires a professional to select equipment appropriate to accommodate the patient and to assist medical professionals in determining if a third party payor (Insurance) can and should fund the purchase.
Enter… the ATP. The Assistive Technology Professional certification demonstrates competence in analyzing the needs of consumers with disabilities, assisting in the selection of appropriate assistive technology for the consumer’s needs, and providing training in the use of the selected device(s).
The ATP works with clients of all ages with every type of cognitive, physical, and sensory disability. The solutions provided, whether low- or high-tech, are usually designed to enhance communication, mobility, and access to computers and educational materials. Employers who sell rehabilitation equipment are required by Medicare to have an ATP on staff to ensure correct equipment is dispensed, and fitted appropriately.
American Seating & Mobility employs nine ATPs among its four stores in the Pacific Northwest. Learning how to successfully match rehab equipment with the patient’s habitus and disability requires a rigorous certification process and practical experience. RESNA ATP certification requires passing a five and a half hour multidisciplinary exam. To be eligible to take the test, a candidate must meet education requirements (which sometimes includes AT-specific coursework) and a corresponding number of work hours in a relevant field.
Certification is administered by RESNA, the Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America; a professional organization dedicated to promoting the health and well-being of people with disabilities through increasing access to technology solutions.
If you’re a therapist or physician managing patients who require rehabilitation technology, be sure to look for RESNA ATPs on staff to ensure your patient will be treated with the highest ethics and competency.
