Living with spinal cord injury – unseen complications; role of research

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) results in total or varying degrees of loss of sensation and motor function below the level of injury. However, there are many complex chronic issues that are ‘unseen’ like bladder and bowel function; spasticity; pressure ulcers and urinary tract infections – all affecting a person’s quality of life. This seminar gives a personal insight into living with spinal cord injury (Ralph) and how latest research is tackling chronic issues (Derek)
