Advanced Medical Solutions For Car Crash Injuries

In the year 2015 in the state of Texas, there were injuries caused by an auto accident every two minutes and eight seconds, which proves Texas highways are still as dangerous as ever.

While most people think of injuries caused by an auto accident to be something temporary, like a broken bone or concussion, in some cases, injuries caused by an accident can be more long-term. In fact, some injuries can not only be long-term, but life-changing as well. Thankfully, developments in science and medical technology are helping auto accident survivors with debilitating injuries overcome some of their challenges.

Auto Accidents Can Have Life-Changing Consequences

Andre van Rüschen saw his life completely change after an automobile wreck in 2003 left him unable to walk and paralyzed from the waist down due to a spinal cord injury, according to an article on EnGadget.com. Not long after he woke up from a week-long coma in a hospital in Hamburg, he was given the opportunity to be outfitted with the earliest version of ReWalk, which is a mechanical exoskeleton controlled by mechanics and wiring to move the feet and legs. Now, thirteen years later, Andre is a pro at using the equipment. He also is a member of the ReWalk staff.

Treatment For Serious Injuries Is Constantly Evolving

ReWalk is not for everyone, as those interested must have enough upper body strength and coordination to control the gear. Plus, the current designs are suitable for users who are between 5'3" and 6'3" in height and no more than 220 pounds. However, the design has undergone many transformations over the last several years and is fully expected to continue developmental changes to cater to a wider range of users. ReWalk is now a shining example of how technology and medicine can work hand-in-hand to give mobility back to car accident sufferers and others who were told they could never walk again.

While technology is changing how the world thinks about serious long-term injuries, many great ideas are merely in their developmental stages. Those injured in an auto accident must consider the fact that some injuries can be life-altering and could require treatment for the long term, which is often disregarded when looking for compensation. Hiring an attorney to help with an auto accident claim is one way to ensure a fair total of compensation is sought to cover those long-term injuries.
