Patients with SCI usually have permanent and often devastating neurologic deficits and disability. This is compounded by the fact that it costs an estimated Ksh.10 million and above to rehabilitate one person with SCI, a service that must be sourced abroad as there are no Rehabilitation Centers within East and Central Africa, yet more than 200 patients with the traumas of spinal cord injury at any given time need rehabilitation in this country. In which case the economic implication is far out of reach for individuals, families and consequently the Country as there is resultant significant loss of human life that would otherwise translate to productive populace. A majority (upto 70%) of SCI survivors die barely within 6 months upon leaving treatment Centers mainly due to secondary complications like depression, stress; pressure/bed sores inter alia due to lack of rehabilitation services. The most important aspect of clinical care for the SCI patient is preventing complications related to disability. Beyond clinical treatment, supportive rehabilitative care has shown to decrease complications related to mobility.
