In 2002, the Cramer Advisory Council was established when 7 athletic trainers from across the country were invited to test various products and provide their feedback. Since 2002, the advisory council has met annually to develop, innovate, and improve products and to discuss industry trends. Members of the advisory council are selected from various settings. To date, the following settings have been represented – NCAA and NAIA universities, high schools, the military, and orthopedic clinics. To better serve the athletic training profession, Cramer is committed to including athletic trainers from emerging settings such as the performing arts and the industrial setting on future councils. Cramer is a member of the growing Performance Health brand family and continues to invest in quality and purposeful innovation of products that will better serve all athletic trainers.
