According to statistics, disability is more common in rural than in urban or suburban locations. This means that many with disabilities, including those with chronic and severe physical and health limitations, live far away from specialists whose help they need to survive.
To illustrate, current medical practice enables many people with spinal cord injuries, including those with quadriplegia (high- level injuries affecting all four limbs), to live into their sixties and seventies. What is particularly needed is specialized care to deal with such secondary conditions as autonomic dysreflexia (bladder distension caused by intestine or colon obstructions). While such care is available in major metropolitan areas, it is rarely offered outside of urban hospitals and spinal-cord centers.
In those instances, high-quality images that remotely located experts can read and interpret are necessary. That is why telemedicine is essential. Physicians can send X-rays and other images to specialists who can interpret them and then explain to local care givers what steps to take to meet the individual’s needs.
