Paralyzed Veterans of America

This site is recommended by a female SCI professional and is the site of the Consortium for Spinal Cord Medicine, an on-line resource for US veterans and civilians seeking information on SCI/D and membership information. It is good for all levels of SCI including those newly injured and can be read either in English or Spanish.

There is much information and many links available on this well laid out site such as: an overview of an SCI, Sports and Recreation, Accessible Design, Disability Rights and much more.

One highlight is their free Consortium materials and publications on SCI related topics such as:

Sexuality & Reproductive Health in Adults with an SCI

Respiratory Management after an SCI

Bladder Management for Adults with SCI

Outcomes Following a Traumatic SCI

Prevention of Thrombo-Embolism in SCI

and many more SCI related topics.
