View Full Version : Quadriplegic research assistance needed

02-28-2012, 10:24 AM
(Thread title and text edited to say 'quadriplegic' instead of 'paraplegic'. Silly Stupid me.)

I have a friend who's working on a lovely short story about a quadriplegic young man, and she needs some help with details along the lines of how much can one tell about one's body being moved. If you are or know of someone who is willing to help, please PM me. As this is someone else's story, I can't ask questions for her here; I'm trying to help her find a resource who will help her offline.

Thanks in advance!

Hi. My brother is bedfast with spina bifida, paralyzed from the waist down, is left handed, and his right hand is spastic. He has hydrocephalus, a shunt, and is on seizure medication. I am his sole caregiver with no outside support. If I can be of any help, please feel free to PM me. I'd be glad to answer any questions your friend may have.
