Tips and tricks from people with spinal cord injuries (SCI).

We now show 1204 tips from 80 people with spinal cord injuries for assistive devices, adaptations and individually designed solutions.

There is also information about where to get the devices and who paid for them. Since the tips come from people living in Sweden this information might not be relevant for people from other countries.

Spinalistips is run by Spinalis Foundation. It was started with support from the Swedish Inheritance Fund (Allmänna Arvsfonden). The English translation was sponsored by Promobilia Foundation. Spinalistips is now maintained by the Spinalis Foundation. The database is regularly updated. Spinalis is not responsible for the tips.

You may copy pictures or parts of the database for the purpose of spreading the tips and ideas shared here if your use is restricted to non-commercial purposes and the source is acknowledged.
