I had a few places to go today. When you’re in a wheelchair you tend to save all of your errands up for one day in the week. It’s just a royal pain, leaving the house, getting in the van… and that putting on pants stuff… forget about it.

My first stop was at a notary office on the third floor of a building. I had to get a paper notarized. This paper basically stated that I really…Continue

Nearly everyone knows about ReWalk, the revolutionary robotic exoskeleton invented in Israel that allows paraplegics to stand, walk, and even navigate steps and run marathons. Ironically, ReWalk inventor Amit Goffer cannot use his own device because he is a quadriplegic, paralyzed from the neck down following an accident in 1997. But last summer he was… Continue Reading »

The gene called Oct4 may eventually help treat people with spinal injuries. Oct4 is responsible for regulating stem cells and affects the growth of the trunk in the middle part of a… Continue Reading »

The ruling, delivered in late July, overturns the original denial of the claim by the payer, a statutory health insurance… Continue Reading »
