NSCISC supports and directs the collection, management and analysis of the world’s largest spinal-cord injury database. It is at the hub of a network of 14 federally sponsored and three subcontract-funded regional Model Spinal Cord Injury Systems located at major U.S. medical centers. Many of the findings have had a significant impact on the delivery and nature of medical rehabilitation services provided to SCI patients.
