What we do

Building research collaboration and consumer engagement, to improve the lives of people with spinal cord injury

To improve the lives of those living with spinal cord injury, global multi-centre research collaboration is needed.

SCoRH is the first and only spinal cord research collaboration platform where researchers can connect share and collaborate online.

Through multi-centre research collaboration, clinical practice can be transformed - improving the lives of millions worldwide.

More than being paralysed

Living with a spinal cord injury is much more than being paralysed

People with spinal cord injury face many challenging secondary health complications that diminish quality of life and capacity for independence.

Secondary health implications may include:

  • Loss of control of bladder and bowel function
  • Sleep apnoea
  • Dysfunctional blood pressure
  • Sexual Health complications
  • Lung problems
  • Bone and joint problems
  • Psychological challenges, and vocation
  • Loss of deep sensation necessary to prevent pressure sores

Social marginalisation may include:

  • Inaccessible public spaces, housing, and workplaces
  • Social and cultural barriers which limit opportunities for community participation on an equal basis with other citizens
