    We need to work that into catchy slogan that able body folks can get hold of.

    $5billion for SCI research and not a WALL.

    Imagine if we could have HALF of the $5.7 billion wall project for SCI. SCI costs the US taxpayer something north of $20 billion / year so curing it with a few billion bucks is a net savings.
    But that's just rational thought instead of politics, so it won't happen.

    Source:
    University of Minnesota Medical School
    Summary:
    Researchers show that spinal cord stimulation can immediately restore some voluntary movement and autonomic functions such as cardiovascular, bowel, and bladder years after a paralyzing injury without any significant rehabilitation.

    Scientists identify gene partnerships that promote spinal cord regeneration
    Date:
    March 6, 2019
    Source:
    Marine Biological Laboratory
    Summary:
    Scientists have identified gene 'partners' in the axolotl salamander that, when activated, allow the neural tube and associated nerve fibers to functionally regenerate after severe spinal cord damage. Interestingly, these genes are also present in humans, though they are activated in a different manner.

    Stem cell clinical trials part of new groundbreaking research
    ANTHONY GALLOWAY, National Political Reporter, Herald SunMarch 12, 2019 9:30am

    Patients suffering from deadly diseases could soon be infused with stem cells as part of a $150 million funding boost.
    The Herald Sun can reveal a new Federal Government medical research program, to be unveiled today, will look at beginning clinical trials with humans within the next 10 years.
    The Australian Stem Cell Therapies Mission will support radical stem cell research for a range of conditions including heart disease, spinal cord injuries, strokes and kidney disease.
    Researchers will also look at how stem cells can grow into brain cells and then repair the damage caused by neurological conditions including dementia and Parkinson’s disease.

    Gene medication shows promise to treat spinal cord injuries
    Download PDF Copy
    Reviewed by Alina Shrourou, BScMar 18 2019
    The two-gene medication has been proven to recover motor functions in rats. After several months of treatment, rodents were able to use previously paralyzed limbs. Researchers at Kazan Federal University are now seeking pre-clinical trial investment.
    One of the problems with spinal cord injuries is that after they occur, a connective tissue cicatrix forms around them. This prevents further growth of axons. The research group wants to decrease cicatrix growth speed and stimulate regeneration of axons.

    At least the WALL fund will give us something to show for our money.
    Money into SCI is like going into a black hole.

    Occupational Therapy: Enabling individuals to reach maximum independence

    By Karen LeBeau
    April is National Occupational Therapy Awareness Month, the perfect time to reflect on the many benefits of occupational therapy. Occupational therapy may benefit patients with neurological, orthopedic, psychiatric, arthritic, and cardiac conditions; post-surgical and post-trauma patients; pulmonary and oncology patients; and a wide variety of general medical patients.
    Occupational therapy helps individuals with their daily “occupations.” Occupations go beyond your job, and include everything we do from the moment we wake up until the moment we fall asleep. It’s difficult to get ready for work if you can’t get dressed.

    On a November night in 2017 in the town of Achille, OK, a mother received news no parent could ever imagine hearing. Michelle Williams had received a phone call from her husband notifying her that her son, Braiden had flipped over his pickup truck and had been ejected from the vehicle. When Braiden’s parents arrived at the scene of the accident, Braiden was unable to move the left side of his body.
