United Spinal Association has access to over 100,000 wheelchair users, 50+ chapters, 180+ support groups, and 100+ rehabs and hospital partners nationwide––including 10 distinguished Spinal Cord Injury Model System Centers that support innovative projects and research in the field of SCI.

United Spinal is committed to advocating for greater civil rights and independence for people with
disabilities, including expanding education and employment, improving enforcement of the Americans with
Disabilities Act (ADA), ensuring adequate access to public transportation and taxi services, and amending
Medicare rules that restrict many individuals to their homes and nursing facilities.
