Spinal Cord Injury Petitions & Surveys


Predictors of sexual pleasure, orgasm, and sexual satisfaction in men and women living with spinal cord injury

This research project aims at filling out an existing gap in the research literature dedicated to the sexuality of individuals living with a spinal cord injury (SCI). More specifically, the study’s goal is to further understand the role of various perceptual, sexual, psychological and neurophysiological factors involved in the perception of sexual pleasure and orgasm function for individuals living with an SCI, as well as in their overall sexual satisfaction. Research findings will guide the implementation of targeted interventions in the field of sexual rehabilitation for the SCI population. Participation involves completing an online survey at the following address: https://bso-validation.limequery.com/132198?lang=en. Participants will be entered into a raffle to win gift cards (Amazon.com) once the research project is completed. Further information can be obtained by contacting the research team at sexualitebm@gmail.com.


Neurogenic Bladder Research Study

The Neurogenic Bladder Research Group (NBRG) is conducting a nationwide survey to ask people with SCI how their bladder management affects their quality of life. Participants can enroll through our website and answer questions about their bladder management. After enrollment we will send them a $50 gift card and then another $50 if they complete more surveys over the year. Please tell us about your bladder!

Survey About Independence in Daily Living and Quality of Life After Spinal Cord Injury

The enclosed link below contains a survey that seeks your opinion/perspectives on which functions you (would) value most highly to improve your own independence in daily living and quality of life. It does so by asking you to complete a series of scenarios and questionnaires, ranking the relative importance in restoring different sorts of function (arm movement/hand grasping, walking, bladder and bowel control, sexual function) and/or treating the very common problem of neuropathic (nerve-related) pain against each other. This research forms part of a PhD study in which we hope to be able to compare views of people with SCI in the United States with Australia, extending previous work done in US.

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!
