    How old are quads?

    Just curious but who or how many old quads are out there. Know there’s a few right here on this board (they say there still alive though) but I’m trying to get an idea of how long you live after a cervical injury.

    Understand there are so many different variables that the data would be skewed and pretty much useless to draw high confidence conclusions, but I would like to see some raw data if anyone has any examples.

    If we could get 20, 30 or 50 responses that would be cool but even a dozen would be some info.

    The oldest person w a SCI I knew was born in 1927 and died 08-04-02. He broke his neck in college circa at 20 year’s old living as a quad for ~55 years.

    The data is:

    20 when injured, 55 surviving

    Chad was injured in 1988 at age 19. Now nearly 23 years later .... he's still a quad.
