The Spinal Cord Injury Network International (SCINI) is a non-profit organization dedicated to responding to the needs of individuals who have experienced spinal cord injuries. Every year, approximately 10,000 individuals receive spinal cord injuries (SCI), resulting in varying degrees of paralysis (e.g., paraplegia or quadriplegia). The leading causes of spinal cord injury include motor vehicle accidents, acts of violence, falls, and sporting activities. Established in 1986, Spinal Cord Injury Network International provides affected individuals and family members with a clear understanding of the options available for leading a healthy, active life following paralysis. The network also provides links to healthcare services, organizations, agencies, specialists, and hospitals. In addition, Spinal Cord Injury Network International has a lending program of informational videos that address a variety of topics, including accessibility, autonomic dysreflexia, bladder and bowel management, brain injury, exercise, living with a disability, pressure sores, and sexuality. The network also maintains a resource library and provides materials for travelers with disabilities.
