Improved Seated Balance Therapy

The purpose of this study is to improve seated balance therapy for patients with spinal cord injuries.  Researchers would like to know what patients and therapists think about current therapies; what they like and don’t like. 
This interview can be done over the phone by calling Doug Hartley at 980-254-5364 or responses to the below questions can be emailed directly to hartleyd [at]
Please send responses as soon as possible, preferably by the end of April.
• What problems do you have from injury – balance, strength, etc. – that might be addressed by seated movement and feedback?
• What is annoying about the exercises you do?
Would distractions help you manage pain?
• What makes you stop exercising or going to therapy?
• Do you currently use music or video as part of therapy?
• What equipment or movements do you currently use in therapy?
• How much does the use of the equipment cost?
• What does the current equipment not address?
