Who we are

Our online community is as diverse as its members.

We are...

  • People with spinal cord injury: young and old, experienced and inexperienced

  • Spouses, friends, relatives, and colleagues of people with spinal cord injury

  • Experts, researchers and employees of the Swiss Paraplegic Group in Nottwil

We are all the Community.
