Meet the ďChairĒmen of the BoardÖ
Hudson Reps Making a Difference for NSCIA CT
In 2010, Ray Gorneault and Joe Uccello discussed what they could do to be more involved in the community, especially with the people they worked closely with in their professional lives. Ray and Joe are Assistive Technology Professionals (ATP's) with Hudson Seating and Mobility, Ray joining them in 1995, and Joe in 1998.

Both carried extensive backgrounds in the medical field, Ray having worked at the Newington Children's Hospital for many years, Joe as an Athletic Training student and licensed EMT. Their outgoing natures were the final component that led them to medical sales with Hudson Seating & Mobility, the largest family owned dealer of custom seating and mobility in New England.
 
Treadmill Training After SCI Promotes Recovery when Inflamation is Controlled
from Ohio State University
New research suggests that treadmill training soon after a spinal cord injury can have long-lasting positive effects on recovery -- as long as the training is accompanied by efforts to control inflammation in the lower spinal cord.

The study, in animals, also is among the first to show that spinal cord injuries can create impairments in parts of the cord located many spine segments away from the trauma site.
