New Beginnings BackPack. Life after spinal cord injury.

United Spinal’s New Beginning BackPacks Reached Over 5000 Individuals With A Spinal Cord Injury Or Disease In 2015

But We Need To Reach More In 2016!

The Benefits

Aside from the wealth of information contained in the wheelchair adaptable BackPack (over 30 items), recipients also receive Priority Access to our “Ask Us Spinal Cord Resource Center” staff of consultants.

Our staff provide recipients with priority one-on-one answers, explanations, guidance, and yes, even a shoulder to lean on when needed. Our “Ask Us” program accomplishes over 3000 assists for people with a spinal cord injury and their family members every year. But we need to do more!

While we can’t stuff the BackPack with all of the information that someone may need, we can be there when doubt and confusion arise. We are committed to guiding individuals down the path to a productive and rewarding life after injury.
