NEW "A Day in the Life" Video Series
One of the many challenges for therapists working with patients with spinal cord injuries is ensuring that individuals in wheelchairs are prepared for the many challenges presented in both the home and the community.

Philadelphia's Magee Rehabilitation Hospital, through a grant from the Kessler Foundation, has developed a four-part video series that shows individuals with spinal cord injuries—and who are in wheelchairs—how to adapt to their physical limitations and be self-sufficient. The "A Day in the Life" series stars Frank LaMacchia, who is a T6 complete paraplegic from a car accident, as he goes about his daily tasks.

Anna Martin, CTRS, director and producer of the video series, told ADVANCE, "This is a great opportunity for patients to learn from a peer who knows what they are going through or has the same limitations they do."
