    - Imagine a future with no sporting events for paralysed people

    Wow, the times they are a changing

    Imagine a future with no sporting events for paralysed people. A future in which there is no need, as all the would-be competitors will have been cured.

    This scenario, laughable just a few decades ago, is no longer far-fetched, experts say.

    Bit by bit, important progress is being made in understanding and tackling aspects of paralysis.

    Some believe the time is fast approaching when the major secondary problems from paralysis -- bowel, bladder and sexual dysfunction, breathing complications, declining muscle tone and bone density -- will be treatable, probably through a combination of drugs, cell replacement, physical training and electronic aids.
