Celebrating Fall with Costume Contest Fun! My friends and family will be the first to tell you that I am NOT a cold weather kind of girl. I do whatever I can to hang onto every single aspect of summer that I possibly can… I will wear flip flops with jeans and a sweater in October when it’s 60°F outside.

Peeling Back the Layers of Custom Seating!
My first week working for Sunrise Medical I traveled to our manufacturing facility in Fresno, California.

The majority of these individuals (over 80%) are young males with the average age of injury occurring at 42.6 years of age.  For those of us who have been in the Complex Rehabilitation Technology (CRT) industry for, well, let’s say “a while,” we remember when an individual spent an average of 24 days in the acute wing of the hospital and then spent the next three to four months on the rehab unit.  Today, those with a SCI spend about 11 days in the acute unit and just over 30 days in rehab.
