New technology developed for spinal cord injury victims

Friday November 21, 2014

The spinal cord has some of the most sensitive neurons in the human anatomy. Any injury to the spinal cord may lead to severe physical and psychological ailments or disabilities. Many new inventions have been made by researchers to help those who have suffered spinal cord injuries. Spinal cord injury victims recently found fresh faith with the introduction of a new invention geared toward spinal cord injury research.

The new surgery, however, requires the human body to be in shape. Thus, a fund was set up by a foundation to develop a spinal cord injury victim’s boot camp. Under this initiative, all patients who have been diagnosed with chronic spinal cord injury are entitled to proper training to prepare themselves for the upcoming surgery. The need for the specialized boot camp has been stressed by the foundation, which includes an intense workout regime carried on at the boot camp for as long as six to eight weeks. After the boot camp prepares the chronically injured by getting the victim into better shape, the new age surgery can be performed.

Spinal cord injury can lead to temporary or even permanent physical disabilities. In addition to the physical trauma caused from the injury, the victim may suffer from psychological trauma as well, including depression or anxiety. All these ailments can add up and lead to exorbitant medical expenses, rehabilitation expenses and months or years of lost wages.

People should understand the various rights they have under Connecticut law that aid the victims of spinal cord injuries. When the injury was caused by the negligence of another, the victim may have the right to bring a personal injury law suit to recover some of the physical and emotional damages caused by the suit.
