Spinal cord injuries are life-changing events. Many people who sustain such an injury are introduced to various pieces of adaptive equipment to aid in their daily occupations. The author interviewed three males between the ages of thirty-eight and forty-five with spinal injuries ranging from level C4 through T12. The goal was to determine various factors regarding assistive technology that is used by these individuals.
