Spinal Cord Injury Community Survey
Canadians living with spinal cord injury (SCI) have a unique opportunity to identify their most critical needs and help guide how the Canadian health and social services system meets those needs through a ground-breaking survey being conducted under the umbrella of the Rick Hansen Institute, a team of Canadian researchers, led by Dr. Luc Noreau of Laval University and your local Canadian Paraplegic Association (CPA).
People with SCI have participated in many surveys already and much is now understood about their needs. What makes this survey unique is that it will examine whether or not the self-identified most-critical needs of people with SCI are being met by existing health and social service programs. The information gathered by this survey has the potential to provide clear direction to the advocates of the SCI community to identify the most pressing issues in terms of SCI disability-related needs and services and equip them with the evidence they need to fight for needed improvements for people with SCI.
The survey is available online, and can also be taken via telephone. It takes about 90 minutes online and two hours by phone. The contributions of survey participants will be acknowledged with a $25 gift card and a complimentary subscription to Solutions magazine.

Systems for Wheelchairs Users
The University of Wisconsin- Madison is currently working on Assistive and Rehabilitation Technology. We are working on designing systems for wheelchairs users to increase their mobility/independence. Our main focus is to create a system where the wheelchair users can do daily activities with little help from a loved one. We would greatly appreciate if you could take the time to answer some questions that will help develop this system. We want to ensure that our product design incorporates what is needed, and does not have undesirable aspects. This questionnaire is for anyone that uses a wheelchair. A different survey is available for the loved ones of a wheelchair user. Your opinion will help create a new system to best meet your wants and needs!

Perceived Barriers to Exercise Research
Do you have spinal paralysis and live in the United States? If so, you qualify for the following research survey.
The Reeve-Irvine Research Center is conducting a research study to determine more details about the perceived barriers to exercise experienced by men and women with spinal cord injuries. The information gained from this study will provide valuable information to scientists who study how exercise influences different aspects of health, specific to SCI. They need this information in order to better create exercise programs that a large majority of people with SCI can participate in and that are effective for their health. For more information please contact Dr. Kim Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org. All information will be kept strictly confidential.
