Abstract: 

Rehabilitation Engineers are a valuable addition to the rehabilitation team. Unfortunately, this team is often unsure how to best utilize an engineer or even what exactly engineers can do in rehabilitation. Using case studies and personal experience from rehabilitation engineers, clinicians, and Patients within the VA and DOD this session will detail the role and capabilities of rehabilitation engineering within the rehabilitation process. Specific examples of clinician-engineer collaboration and the resulting enhancement to Patient outcomes will be provided.
