Tour of the International Center for Spinal Cord Injury at Kennedy Krieger Institute
The International Center for Spinal Cord Injury (ICSCI) at Kennedy Krieger Institute was founded on the philosophy that individuals with paralysis can always hope for recovery of sensation, function, mobility and independence, months and even years after injury. ICSCI combines innovative research with a unique focus on restoration and rehabilitation for children and adults with chronic paralysis.
