    Nuggets of wisdom from the UK's leading cure charity

    http://www.spinal-research.org/displ...esearch&id=470

    From the newsletter:
    People often think the priority for those with a spinal cord injury is to be able to walk again - you told us that's not the case. And our next round of projects will reflect just that - by concentrating on the issues that matter to you.

    Classic. Who the eff have they been speaking to?
    Excuse the rant. I suppose I'm trying to highlight just how ahead Dr Young and his little army of CC members are.

    I agree with the study results.

    The research may be valid, but I fear it has been manipulated by Spinal Research.

    Less than 8% of quadriplegics considered regaining walking movement as the highest priority. By far the greatest majority saw restoring arm/hand function as having the greatest impact on their quality of life. Sexual function and bladder/bowel function all were deemed more important than regaining walking. For those with arm/hand function largely or completely intact (paraplegics), bladder/bowel and sexual function were once again deemed higher priority than walking*.

    Our response has been to place a call for proposals looking specifically at understanding and restoring what might be thought of as “non-locomotor functions” ie bladder/bowel and sexual function.
    Yeah. Screw those majority of quadriplegics!
    ...it's worse than we thought. it turns out the people at the white house are not secret muslims, they're nerds.

    I agree, they should start at the top and work down but bladder and bowel working up comes a very close second.

    Working bowels would be awesome, but I bet the majority of their funding will go toward the sexual stuff.

    I'm ashamed to say that I've been donating a small annual amount via bank standing order to this crowd for over twenty years and I haven't a clue what they do with it.
