We carry out practical research to improve quality of life after paralysis

Story

So for some crazy reason I have chosen to take part in the ultra Jurassic coast challenge in May 2022, walking 100km over 2 days, raising funds for the amazing Stoke Mandeville Spinal Research, a charity that is driven to provide people with the best quality of life following a spinal cord injury. 

 Paralysis is a fact of life for the 40,000 people living with spinal cord injury, and it can happen to anyone. For the majority of people, being unable to walk is just another challenge to add to the many other difficulties they face on a daily basis. Pressure ulcers, urinary tract infections and pain are all a daily threat to quality of life, making it hard to 'get on with life'. SMSR is tackling these day to day challenges through research to ensure that individual's with spinal cord injury have the best quality of life possible. 


About the charity

Paralysis. Life. Each day, some people wake up having to think about both. That's why we are here. With medical breakthroughs, technological innovation, and social insight - combined with your support, we can do more to help people to get on with life after paralysis.
