Thursday, December 13, 2012

ROCKY HILL, Conn. – Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., met with ATG Rehab customers and executives on Dec. 12, according to a press release. Gary Kuchachik and 11-year-old Lexi Charbonneau, two individuals whose lives depend on complex rehab, told the senator how important it is to have appropriate seating and control modifications to remain independent and functional. Blumenthal also toured company headquarters with Paul Bergantino, ATG Rehab’s president and CEO, and Frank Biondello, division president, who urged Blumenthal to support efforts to improve access to complex rehab, such as H.R. 4378, a bill that would create a separate benefit for complex rehab. Also in attendance at the meeting were Don Clayback, executive director at the National Coalition for Assistive and Rehab Technology (NCART) and Ed Curley, vice president of Hudson Seating & Mobility.
