The article focuses on the benefits of a comprehensive medical check-up for people with spinal-cord injury (SCI) in the U.S. This could be attributed to the availability of new treatments and adaptive technologies. In the case of Charles Kay, the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) was doing good things for patients with spinal-cord injury. He worked with specialists in the Assistive Technology Center to develop new devices to help him with daily activities and was trained on the Lokomat.
