Who built SCI-U?

SCI-U was created by a diverse group of more than 100 people. Content was developed by subject-matter experts: people living with spinal cord injury, service delivery professionals and medical professionals (such as PTs, OTs, nurses and MDs). A production team developed and assembled the multimedia assets that make up each course (video, audio, animation, photo, illustration). Medical reviewers helped ensure the accuracy of the information, and researchers evaluated the effectiveness of the project.

Every course in SCI-U features three video presenters, as well as several interviews with people who live with spinal cord injury and talk about their real-world experiences.
