SCI Hard is a mobile game from the perspective of someone with spinal cord injury. Save the world from legions of mutated animals while learning methods of reducing incidence of secondary conditions, such as urinary tract infections and skin ulcers. The intended audience is teens and young adults with a spinal cord injury or other type of spinal cord dysfunction. Although still in the clinical trial phase, there are opportunities for individuals outside the study to play the game. SCI Hard was developed through the collaboration of Michelle Meade, M.D., and the U-M 3D Lab. Learn more at the SCI Hard study website.
