Stoke Mandeville Spinal Research
Founded in 2006, Stoke Mandeville Spinal Research (SMSR) is an independent, national charity seeking to promote quality of life in people with spinal cord injury (SCI) through research. Our vision is to enable people with spinal cord injury to have life after paralysis without the setbacks of debilitating health complications.
There are around 40,000 people living in the UK with SCI, many of whom will experience complications from their injury. We provide grants of up to £100,000 per year for up to 3 years to spinal cord injury researchers focussing on our priority areas, each of which affects the quality of life of people living with SCI. We hope that this research leads to new treatments and therapies, deepens our understanding and dissemination of best practice in these areas:
• Assistive Technology Primarily for Upper Limb function
• Neuropathic Pain
• Pressure Ulcers
• Urinary Tract Infection
