Sea of Change Previous Broadcasts

KQED World: Sat, Dec 7, 2013 -- 2:00 PM

Narrated by Montel Williams. this is a story about freedom through weightless movement and of self-renewal for a 24 year old girl, Cody Unser, and 9 war veterans all of whom are paralyzed. Free from their wheelchairs on a reef 60 feet below the surface of the sea,they travel with no worry of high curbs or large steps getting in the way. This amazing experiment is chronicled by Johns Hopkins doctors and may change the lives of anyone with paralysis.
The medical research team, lead by Dr.Adam Kaplin, Psychiatrist at Johns Hopkins, and Dr. Daniel Becker, Neurologist at Kennedy Krieger Institute, discover amazing results from the experience, results that could forever change the way paralysis is treated and the way those in wheelchairs live their lives. "We saw dramatic changes in a matter of days in people with spinal cord injury who went scuba diving," Becker says. "This is just a pilot study, but to see such a restoration of neurological function and significant improvement in PTSD symptoms over such a short period of time was unprecedented."
