About Us

Welcome to the Spaulding New England Regional Spinal Cord Center.

Our purpose is to:

  • Research many different aspects of SCI through onsite and collaborative studies and data collection.
  • Inform people with SCI, their families, the general public and medical professionals about SCI – including rehabilitation, the latest resources, adaptive technology, and research.
  • Provide services for people with SCI during their initial hospitalization and after discharge from a SNERSCIC site.
  • Advocate and support individuals with disabilities to live as fully as possible as active members of their communities
  • Provide individuals with SCI the opportunity to be involved in research, whenever appropriate.

Spaulding is one of the 14 Spinal Cord Model Systems (SCIMS) in the United States, funded by National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) and national leaders in SCI-related care and research. Each center provides the highest level of comprehensive and multidisciplinary care from point of injury through rehabilitation and full community re-entry. They also direct the collection, management, and analysis of a longitudinal national SCI database.
