Thousands of people of all ages and their families facing paralysis all over the world who were unaware of their potential to live a fulfilling life. Statistics of unemployment, poverty and depression for this population are dismal at best...
Network these people online and let them share what they've learned with others via user-generated videos and organize them by mobility so it's easy for people to navigate...
Too many people's fates were up to chance. Lucky you if you were near to a big city or a good hospital, but what if you lived in a rural area? What if no one in your town, state, or even country was in a similar situation?
Why not give a way for the EXPERTS, the people who have already gone through adapting to paralysis, a way to share what they already learned and reach more people than ever before?
SPINALpedia makes it possible for a quadriplegic in one place to share a 30 second video about how to hold a cup and reach the home of anyone with an internet connection- from the UK to Bhutan, India to Australia-- we connect, we learn, we adapt.
All it takes is an awareness of what's possible and the information to get there.
|When Josh Basile and Britt Martin met in the summer of 2007, they were on a mission to improve the quality of life of people with paralysis. Josh, a C4-5 quadriplegic, and Britt, daughter of a C6-7 quadriplegic, combined forces to create SPINALpedia. The duo represents the community they aim to unite: those paralyzed and the able-bodied people affected.|
|We envision a world where people with paralysis enjoy life and are active members of society. By helping more people adapt faster, we can change the negative perceptions of disability by demonstrating what people CAN do.|
