    Didn't work for Canada.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

        Hello Lauren,

        I'm working on my second Wheechair & Seating manual for patients and need help with the materials. Perhaps you could share the materials you have on SCI injury and use of a power wheelchair. I cooperate with The Quantum Solution engineers group, but my task is more theoretical, while their project will be based on my results, so I'm pressed for time. I'd appreciate any help.

          I suggest you contact this person directly. She has not returned to our site since early 2018.

          The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.
