International Spinal Cord Injury Day

International Spinal Cord Injury Day

Did you know that today is International Spinal Cord Injury Day? This year the theme of the day is "Access to SCI services; a life less complicated.”

In May 2020 Tony sustained C5 AIS D tetraplegia and underwent inpatient rehabilitation at the Burwood Spinal Unit. He was discharged home in November 2020 and has worked with the team from LFBIT since then.

Living with a spinal cord injury is obviously challenging, but Tony has remained fully committed to his rehabilitation journey to become as independent as he can. This year Tony worked intensively with physiotherapy support to successfully trial a C-brace to help improve his ability to stand and walk for longer periods, lower the risk of falls, and reduce the loading on his right arm.

At LFBIT, our specialist assessments and modifications for mobility and living are all designed to help our clients achieve independence and quality of life. Tony has been fully engaged in his partnership with the team from LFBIT and is appreciative of the support he has received. Awesome work Tony!
