Worldwide, millions of people are dependent on a wheelchair after having sustained a spinal cord injury, most often as the result of a traffic accident or a fall. The health problems they have to face are hard to imagine. They cannot walk, they do not have feeling in parts of their body and they may not have control of their bowl or bladder. Unfortunately, this list goes on and on.
