VA Spinal Cord Injury System
The VA runs a specialized nationwide system of care devoted to veterans with spinal cord injuries. Known simply as the "SCI Service", the VA operates this system using the policies and procedures found in VA Handbook 1176.1.

Veterans seeking service from the SCI Service can gain an understanding of the policies and procedures governing the SCI Service in this handbook. Additionally, if necessary, veterans and their advocates can gain useful insights about the SCI Service and the way they operate.
VA Prosthetics
VA Prosthetics Handbooks provide local VA staff with guidance on how to run the prosthetics program. Within these handbooks, veterans and advocates can find useful information to understand local policies and procedures, as well as to challenge adverse decisions.

This series deals specifically with the provision of various prosthetics, orthotics and durable medical equipment through the Veteran Health Administration's Prosthetics and Sensory Aids Service ("Prosthetics") or PSAS.

Prosthetics provides devices to eligible veterans for use outside of VA medical centers or facilities.
