180 Medical, a leading Nationally Accredited provider of sterile use catheters, urologic and disposable medical supplies, announced today they have partnered with the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation to fund innovative spinal cord injury research and support for families affected by spinal cord injuries.

“As an individual that suffered a spinal cord injury more than 15 years ago, not a day goes by that I do not appreciate the importance of the effort to find a cure for spinal cord injury and the need to support individuals and their families until one is found. Frustration from a lack of information regarding my care and access to products that could improve my quality of life is actually what drove me to start my company, 180 Medical,” said founder of 180 Medical Todd Brown in a statement to fellow Reeve Foundation supporters.

180 Medical was created to provide education, great service and quality products to patients that need to use urinary catheters so that their lives can be improved, a mission consistent with the Reeve Foundation’s outstanding work in the areas of research and support.

180 Medical has committed to substantial multi-year financial support for the Reeve Foundation in 2010 and 2011, which will be increased based upon the growth of the company. Spinal cord injury sufferers can purchase their sterile use catheters, urologic and disposable medical supplies through 180 Medical knowing a portion of the proceeds will be going towards finding spinal cord injury cures and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis. “We view this as a real win-win situation for all involved,” concluded Brown.
