The Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center for the Advancement of Cognitive Technologies (RERC-ACT) is the nation’s first Center to conduct research and development on assistive technologies for people with cognitive disabilities. Twelve universities and private companies throughout the United States are involved in projects that will improve the lives of people with cognitive disabilities such as traumatic brain injuries, intellectual disabilities and Alzheimer’s disease.
The RERC-ACT's Administration Team is located at Assistive Technology Partners, in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. It is funded by a five-year grant from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR). Additional funding is provided by the Coleman Institute for Cognitive Disabilities.The RERC-ACT includes research and development projects, training activities, and the dissemination of informational materials.
