A community for spinal cord injury survivors

SCI Active Network is a positive network that connects Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) survivors and their families through peer mentoring, and empowers an active lifestyle towards mobility, independence, and a higher quality of life.

Troy is a spinal cord injury survivor and Founder/ CEO of SCI Active Network – a community for spinal cord injury survivors. They welcome survivors AND their families to join and participate so they can network, learn and be supportive of their loved one – and their loved one can connect to those with similar life challenges.

A Collier patient since 2004, Troy received an RGO through Kaiser Rehabilitation in Vallejo. Troy has been using his RGO therapeutically with a walker, as well as at home and during public demonstrations. Troy started mentoring patients and therapists on how RGO’s work, and he saw a real need for peers to connect to share valuable information and encouragement.
Since 2015, Troy has worked to connect, support and encourage SCI survivors to be active in living life. Spinal Cord Injury Active Network has trained peer mentors to visit, speak and teach classes at Northern California Rehabilitation Centers and community events in the Bay Area.
SCI Active Network also hosts over a dozen family-inclusive activities a year at different locations throughout Northern California, plus provide a monthly support network meeting in Solano County, CA.
One of the most important missions for founder Troy Plunkett is the Share-A-Chair program. Donated lightweight wheelchairs are provided to survivors in need to increase their mobility, independence, and quality of life.
Spinal Cord Injury Active Network is a 501(c)(3) organization, and donations are tax-deductible. You can donate, volunteer or participate by visiting their website at sciactivenetwork.org.

Prosthetic and Orthotic Resources for Families

We have put together some links which you may want to explore to learn more about your child’s condition or find support for your child with a prosthesis. Please remember Collier is not affiliated with these websites, and that there is no substitute for a practitioner who listens to your needs.

Collier practitioners make themselves available for questions of any kind regarding your child’s prosthesis. Many patients have come to us, and with a few corrections to their prosthesis, are thrilled to have options that were not offered with their previous practitioner.
