HUMAN SPINAL CORD INJURY: NEW & EMERGING THERAPIES

Icelandic Health Authorities and the World Health Organization (WHO) with the support of the Council of Europe have launched an international effort to accumulate information on various therapies and procedures that have the potential to restore function in people who have sustained a spinal cord injury (SCI).

The project is built on a belief that if we can open-mindedly integrate the divergent pieces of the puzzle that exist throughout the world - whether they originate in the US, China, Russia etc., whether they reflect the perspectives of Western or Eastern medicine, or whether they reflect the contributions of large medical centers or small clinics - restoration of function is a real-world possibility now and not just some distant pie-in-the-sky possibility.

The overall goal of this database is to make information on diverse therapies more readily available to people with SCI, their family, friends, and caregivers.
